long live self-publication
w00t! w00t i say! my copy of Mark Driver's book Just Another Empire arrived.... signed, with a handwritten note saying thank you for buying his book. The man is true to his word:
We'll do a pre-order and the first run of copies will be autographed, personalized, and probably bled and vomited upon. Does this sound reasonable to everybody?.
Thankfully he skipped the bleeding and vomiting.
