According to The New York Observer, Richard Dawkins‘ next book will be (surprise!) a defense of evolution titled Only a Theory?.

I liked The God Delusion and all, but I’m glad he’s back to writing about science.

How much is publisher Free Press paying for the right to publish the new book?

$3,500,000.

And I’m sure Dawkins will be seeing a good chunk of that…

According to this source, the book—to be called Only a Theory?—will offer empirical evidence for evolution, and will be published next year, on the 150th anniversary of the publication of Charles Darwin’s On the Origin of Species.

The God Delusion, which has sold over a million copies and inspired several book-length counterarguments, was published by Houghton Mifflin.

Free Press publisher Martha Levin said she and her staff were “thrilled” about the acquisition.
