I'm delighted to announce that O'Reilly have agreed to publish a book on 
Parallel and Concurrent Haskell authored by me.  The plan is to make a 
significantly revised and extended version of the Parallel and 
Concurrent Haskell tutorial from CEFP'11:


The book will be published in both hardcopy and electronic formats, and 
will also be available online under a Creative Commons license 
(Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 3.0).  There will be some mechanism 
for people to see and comment on early drafts, but I don't know the 
details yet.

When will it be done?  I can't say for sure, but the tentative date for 
completion is March 2013.

I'm really keen for this to be a book that will be useful to people both 
learning about parallelism and concurrency in Haskell, and coding stuff 
for real-world use.  If there are topics or application areas that you'd 
like to see covered, or any other suggestions, please let me know.  All 
contributions will be acknowledged, of course!
