The New Book Is Out!
For my 600th post here, I’m announcing that my new book, Sci-Ence! Justice Leak!, is out. It’s available as a hardback book with a pretty dust-jacket for twenty pounds, a paperback for ten pounds, a PDF for only three pounds, and tomorrow it should be available as an ePub for a fiver, so there’s a version for every taste and wallet.
The book, for those who haven’t read my recent deluge of posts on the subject, is a set of interlinked essays on Grant Morrison, Doctor Who/Faction Paradox, Jack Kirby, DC Comics, the ideas of ‘continuity’ and ‘canon’, quantum physics, black holes, the life trap, entropy, cybernetics, Liberalism, Hypertime and more. It collects all the ‘escapology and eschatology’ and ‘hyperpost’ essays, but does so in a way that makes it more than the sum of its parts – I’ve put a LOT of effort into structuring this, and it will, I hope, repay study. I’ve tried to make it the same sort of dense, fractally structured thing as Who Sent The Sentinels or The Book Of The War (though whether I’ve succeeded or not is hardly for me to say).
Now, this book has a VERY limited audience. I thought it would be limited to just me, but David Allison and Plok both liked it, so there may be as many as five people who would like it. But those people would *REALLY* like it.
I am very proud of this, and want those five people to find it, so could anyone who buys this, or who has a friend who might be interested, PLEASE let as many people as possible know about it? Even if you don’t like it, a link from a blog or a tweet might let someone who *would* like it know about it – and a bad review of this might be as attractive to the tiny number of people who would enjoy it as a good one.
I’m not asking for links to make money on this – there’s no way on earth I’ll ever make a decent hourly wage for the time this took – I’m just genuinely proud of this thing, and think that the few people who like it will like it A LOT, so I want them to find out about it.
Thank you, and thank you to everyone who’s read these 600 posts, without whom I would never have written this or my other book. And now this is out, I can go back to posting about other stuff, starting tomorrow.
