Thanks for the kind words, Creature. In addition to ordering directly from the publisher, youse can now get the book from Amazon as well. There's very little overlap in content with the Keith Morris bio so if you're interested in the Circle Jerks, you should definitely read both.

I don't know the guy who wrote the Keith book, so fuck him.

Ha. I appreciate your loyalty. I feel obliged to note that the Keith bio is excellent and well worth reading, however.

I ordered directly from Microcosm back in April and see that it hasn't shipped yet, but the release date is tomorrow.

I thought it was out next year, but I wonder why the site says 11/30 and why it's already up for pre-order then (that's pretty early). The point is that I really wanna read it.

It'll be worth the wait. I've read it about 57 times now in an OCD-esque quest to eliminate all typos and standardize punctuation and let me assure you, it just gets better each time.

I don't mind waiting. I can pretend it's a mail order from SST in the '80s (except I will probably actually get the book in the end).

Noted punk rock historian (and good friend) Brian Cogan has told me all about the unique pleasure that is reading Amazon reviews of your work nitpicking every single editorial, thematic and grammatical decision you made. Enjoy!

Ah yes, I can't wait. I imagine it'll remind me of why I don't look at the reader comments to news articles anymore.

My publisher is doing its semiannual Kickstarter campaign. They're a cool company made up of very nice people and they put out lots of interesting, underground books. Every little bit helps, as they say. (And if they meet their goal, pre-orders of The Prodigal Rogerson will go out in February rather than May).

Thanks for the heads up. Seemed to be the best way to pick up a copy. Glad I waited.

I already pre-ordered way back in April or May, so I hope you all can kick this up a notch so I can get my copy sooner (he says selfishly). :-)

Hunter probably saw this on FB, but the physical copy of Razorcake mag showed up today so I thought I would pass this on:

Hi folks,

Just a quick update that the Prodigal Rogerson has landed and it looks great!

We'll be shipping those out in the next week—so if your rewards include that book (but do not include Basic Fermentation), keep an eye on your mailboxes. Basic Fermentation is still on track to ship by summer.

Also, we're running a new Kickstarter in a very different vein, for a collection of feminist bicycle science fiction stories. If that's your jam, check it out!

Best,

Elly / Microcosm
