The JHU Gazette recently featured an article on the death of Henry Tom, the recently retired executive editor of the Johns Hopkins University Press.
Thanks to Kimberly Lynn for alerting me to this sad news.

Jennifer Kolpacoff Deane, A History of Medieval Heresy and Inquisition (Rowman & Littlefield, 2010), purports to cover heresy and inquisition in Europe from 1100 to 1500, but there’s no chapter on Spain at all!
I mean, I’m sure it’s a good book for what it does cover – mysticism, Spiritual Franciscans, Waldensians, witchcraft, Lollards, Hussites, etc. – and no survey book can do everything, but come on.
