The next "ology" will be...

Avast, lubbers! Candlewick Press has announced the next book in the wonderful “ologies” series. The newest sequel to Egyptology, Dragonology, and Wizardology will be:

Pirateology!

Amazon.com lists the release date as July 11, and it’s probably no coincidence that it will be only a few days after the release of the new Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest movie. Pirate fever will be in full swing this summer!

Personally, I was hoping for Faerieology, but I guess it’s not to be this time. I’ll just have to hope for that one in 2007.

Preorder Pirateology from Amazon.com
