200 Chapbooks Equals Heavy

Particularly when they are twice as big! Last year’s Homeless Moon chapbook weighed in at 44 pages. This year’s: 80. The poor woman working the register at the printers nearly killed herself trying to get them up onto the counter.

Two weeks remain until Readercon and the “official” release. In the meantime, we will be sending out a few advance copies for review and/or to wedge under your chair legs so they don’t wobble. I am setting ten copies aside for ye F&SFesque blog promo. If you want one, and are willing to write a bit of a blog entry about what you thought of it, ask. If you are not the eleventh person to do so, you’ll get one.

Otherwise, you’ll just have to wait the two weeks and paypal me the two bucks for shipping. Less than that, even, if you’d prefer the electronic version. Not sure exactly when that’ll come off. But soon–in the next couple days. When it does, you’ll see it here.

  1. is that an everything bagel in the sack in teh background at the top? mmmmmm.

    at such a longer length, it might actually be *too* big to stick under a table-leg….

  2. As a matter of fact, that’s a bag of rolled barley–ingredients for my next batch of beer. But it does look like an everything bagel now that you mention it.

    I guess the folks will have to come up with some other creative household use for 80 pages of chapbook….

  3. So I’ll do one better: I’ll reach the first AND the second chapbooks and blog about them, if you send me the second. The first has been waiting patiently, and the only reason I haven’t read it yet is because it keeps getting lost in the shuffle of gigantic hardcovers. 🙂
