And here, just for vanity fun, is another funny blurb about the book.

    We have to wait until May? That’s forever!

  2. You think you have to wait forever? It’s taken me two and a half years to write the goddamn thing. Six months is nothing.

  3. Frank says:

    “Pre-order”? Faustus, as a card-carrying pedant I’m surprised at you.
    Surely just plain order is enough. When did anyone ever “post-order” something?
    Just my 2 cents worth – can’t wait to read the book, though.

  4. Frank, I find “pre-order” as repulsive as you do, but it’s the verb with which describes its own service. The rules for you Australians must be different–here in America, propitiating our capitalist overlords is our number one priority, so I worry that, if I criticized implicitly by choosing a different verb, I would within two days find myself at Guantanamo Bay being waterboarded.

  5. Oh, who am I kidding? I love propitiating our capitalist overlords.

    Fuckin’ finally. (I heart you.)

  7. TED says:

    I think I’ve been pre-ordering your book since you first mentioned it.

    Anyway, if you can get past that whole waterboarding thing, I’m sure you’d be very popular with the other Guantanamo inmates.

    And the odds are good that you’d be released if the next president is a Democrat. So you’re looking at, roughly, fourteen months of intermittent torture and constant sexual use, after which publishers would be clawing each other’s eyes out to offer you millions for your story.

    Where’s the downside?

    Consider it ordered.

  9. Chris says:

    He can’t knit in Guantanamo.

    The cover is positively fabulous. I love the font of ‘Swish’, and the color is so…gay! Flawless. I can’t wait to read it…well…I suppose I’ll have to wait for Jess to finish it.

  11. Eric says:

    That blurb is right, but can you handle a whip as well as Harrison Ford?
    I’ll just start calling you Indy.

  12. Jeff says:


    (And cool fonts…)

    I can’t wait to read it… and interview you for my blog? Can a shameless plug hurt sales? I think not.
    Hope all is well.

  14. David says:

    Why didn’t they use you for the silhouettes on the cover?

  15. Peter says:

    I just love you.
