A post about books. My books. I had to make it look a bit exciting.
The ISBN number for "Numbers!" arrived this morning. What an efficient bunch they are at the Dutch ISBN office.
I've just sent off the print order. I would use the cover as an illustration, but that would give the game away. For the competition that's gripped you so much there have only been two guesses so far. I know, I'll shout
FIRST CORRECT GUESS OF THE THEME OF "nUMBERS!" WINS A COPY.
Numbered and signed.
"Numbers!" is 284 pages of fun, fun, fun. Fun, fun. Fun.
OK, maybe not "fun" in the conventional enjoyment sense. About a third of the way between fun and tedium. Is there a word for that? Sorry, I got that the wrong way around. A third of the way between tedium and fun. That's what I meant. Tediun. That'll do. 284 pages of tediun. Too good for mere commerce.
The captivating "Brown Beer", however, is available to buy. Not that I would have noticed, seeing how few copies I've shifted. "It's dead good." Andrew said that when I offered him a bag of salt and vinegar crisps. I think it was his opinion of "Brown Beer". "Did you mean Brown Beer, Andrew?" . . . "Yeah". See. Officially "dead good".
In case you're waiting, thinking, "Will that bastard put out a better edition in two weeks?" The answer is "No" "NO" "NO!". I'm far too busy with "War! 1.2" Editing, I noticed it was like a string vest. Full of holes. I need to torture my eyes looking at low-resolution photos of Barclay Perkins WW I logs. That's a whole load of fudium for me.
Buy "Brown Beer" now. Before I put the price up.
