Added to the pile

Arrived today: The Portable Atheist, edited by Christopher Hitchens. Selections from Lucretius, Orwell, Darwin, Lovecraft, Dawkins and others. Some surprises: Nothing from Camus, from La Mettrie, nothing from the Renaissance and almost nothing from the classics...

That said, it looks like an engaging selection. I'm looking forward to it (should get to it around Christmas time...)
