Day Sixteen: New Reward—handmade Coasters!



NEW Gamut REWARD! Handmade “G” coasters by Fiction Editor, Dino Parenti! These are gorgeous. May have to get them myself. Set of four, 5″ square, almost 3/8″ thick, of exotic hardwoods.

Yesterday was also a big day at the Kickstarter, with 22 people taking advantage of the buy one subscription, get one subscription free offer. It also included new backers from Singapore and Belgium—our first from those countries!

We’re at 54% funded, with $28,445 raised by 416 backers!


My review of Karl Taro Greenfeld’s NowTrends is live at The Nervous Breakdown.

My review of Karl Taro Greenfeld’s NowTrends is now up at The Nervous Breakdown. Great stuff. He’s known as a non-fiction author, but he writes fiction too, very well published—The Paris Review, The Missouri Review, BASS, O. Henry, etc. And KTG is one hell of a nice guy, too. I ran across his work in a few copies of TMR and TPR and posted up something at HTMLGiant one day about something, can’t remember what, but he dropped me an email to say that he agreed with my POV and we started chatting. Loved these stories.

Also, I’m a big fan of Hobart‘s Short Flight / Long Drive books. I’ve read many of them, and they’ve all been great.
