New releases

notes of various sorts

My main computer is back home (yay!), and as I promised with my review of the re-release of Peanuts Philosophers, here’s a comparison of the size in the new edition and the old: Now shipping (early): My Life with Charlie Brown, where Charles Schulz’s writings about his own life are …

Animated Peanuts

You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown now shipping

Released today: (And no, I don’t have my copy yet, so I haven’t seen how the documentary featurette came out. I’ll presume I didn’t look too foolish; that’s the magic of editing!)

The “new” Schulz bio

The latest in the string of bios-aimed-to-stuff-school-library-shelves is now shipping, with the imaginative title Charles Schulz, part of the “Basic Biographies” series.

my favorite time of the year

Yes, it is that most special, magical time of year, a time that brings joy to the heart. No, it’s not when a young man’s fancy turns to love. It’s when a middle-aged blogger gets a new book edition of A Charlie Brown Christmas! It is not, mind you, a …

Schulz calendar shipping

Now shipping is a Charles Schulz desktop calendar – notice I’m saying Schulz, not Peanuts, because it’s not Peanuts. In fact, this maybe the first calendar made up of non-Peanuts Schulz material.
