The fifteenth edition of the Chicago Manual of Style will soon be released, with some very welcome updates.

There’s a special place in my heart for the Manual. As a kid I spent hours reading and rereading it, and to this day I get a warm feeling when I hold a copy, or even see one on a shelf. For some reason I no longer own a copy myself (though I do keep Turabian handy) so I’m looking forward to this new edition.
