While the above heading sounds like a title in reverse, its words are in the “correct” order in that our paper with George Casella, A Short History of Markov Chain Monte Carlo, has been accepted for publication by Statistical Science. This publication may sound weird when considering that the paper is also scheduled to appear in the Handbook of Markov Chain Monte Carlo: Methods and Applications, edited by Steve Brooks, Andrew Gelman, Galin Jones, and Xiao-Li Meng… However, George noticed we were allowed to keep our copyright ownership when publishing a chapter of this handbook, hence the possibility to submit the chapter to a journal as well. After a smooth editorial process, the paper has thus been accepted, which makes it my last acceptance for 2010, a rather productive year. I wish (myself!) that the extra-time brought by my appointment at Institut Universitaire de France will see an even more productive 2011 year! And very best wishes to all readers of the ‘Og, in terms of personal and professional accomplishments!!!
