Woohoo! I would love to read this, it sounds awesome. I'll put it on my wishlist for now... any chance of a kindle version coming soon?

The email I got from Nate said a Kindle version is in the works, coming out in about a month.

I didn't manage to remember it when making the post, but as a librarian, I'd be remiss if I didn't remind that you can suggest to your local library that they buy a copy. Tell them a librarian wrote it; they'll be delighted.

Oh, hey, cool. Does the published print version reproduce the handwritten (or in the case of my tiny contribution hand-type-written) letters of the original project?

Awesome! (Yeah, I said it.) Congrats, cog_nate!

Congrats on finishing a project u started!

Your next project should be dead letter office-rem's awesome album from a zombie perspective.

Good job, though.

I remember Nate mentioning some snippets of the original handwritten letters would be in there, so I am curious as to which ones. If my little doodle made it in then I am a published illustrator!

Oh man this is superterrific. Way to go Nate! And that cover art looks really familiar....

When you get your copy, don't forget to review on Amazon!

Thanks, everyone! I hope you enjoy the book.

Snippets of the original project appear at the bottom of every page of the book. For those who helped w/the project, your copy (if you wanted one) will be in the mail by Thursday.

Huzzah!

PS: Any chance of it being available through Amazon.ca?

Hurray! And although looking at the PDF even now makes my hand cramp up all over again, I'm super happy for you.

Yes, word from the publisher is that it will appear in Amazon.ca in a couple weeks.

CONGRATS! I'm very excited for you. I had 'making' letter "claire b" and watching the project evolve from afar. So wonderful, and I can't wait to read it!

Congratulations! I'ma be all over the Kindle version, it sounds awesome.
posted by Nattie at 5:14 PM on April 18, 2011


Cool. Can you update us (or at least me-mail me) with a reminder when the Kindle version is out?
posted by allkindsoftime at 3:18 AM on April 20, 2011


Congratulations! Though it appears to be hitting a rather odd demographic.

Those are actually, if I'm reading this correctly, the answers to three recent AskMe questions

1. burning my hands
2. stupid cat caught roommate's things in the oven on fire (or did he?)
3. how do I protect myself from aggressive dogs?

No clue on the upholstery pins, that's just random.

Here's where the upholstery pins came from.

Awesome! I am strangely delighted by the way patterns of information coalesce around various attractors and then reflect themselves across the net through the unintended consequences of the different rulesets they encounter. It reminds me of those weird self-replicating structures you get in Conway's Game of Life. Except with AskMe.

Neat, lawrence.com did a story on the book. (It also appeared on ljworld.com, which actually owns lawrence.com but hey it's a pain to explain that relationship.) Check it out here.

The Kindle version is out! Also, the book got a brief writeup in the Readorama section of the Kansas City Star.
