"Why Doesn't Cathy Eat Breakfast?"
Cell phone picture of a 15 x 15 character square written in pencil on a marble counter top at the Berkeley Post Office annex:
And it was pretty sweet, too, because some of the books were really good. Really. And we think you should celebrate that long-lost age of ideas with these beautiful cover art posters..."
Along with Patty Hearst, Pete Shelley, Yog Sothoth, L. Sprague de Camp, and Radagast the Brown, this guy was a major touchstone/icon/bugbear of my childhood, such as it was, so, even though he went insane in the end: pax tecum.
As you can see, I just got a few advance copies of the King Dork paperback, which is officially out on Feb. 12. It includes a "preview" of a chunk of the first chapter of Andromeda Klein in the back.
As with the hardcover, Little Type will be selling autographed copies of the paperback when it's available. I'll post a link when I have one, so watch this space. Autographed hardcovers are still available, and we'll probably keep selling those through Little Type as before as long as there is interest and as long as they last. The paperback is inexpensive and is the latest thing, but the hardback still makes a great gift, etc.
Also, there's a story of mine called "Mark Pang and the Impossible Square" in this collection of baseball stories, which comes out in March.
No new news on the King Dork movie as of yet, but I believe the next step is to hurry up and wait for the writers' strike to be resolved.
OK, I gotta get back to work.
This big thunderclap just set off several car alarms on my street.
