The Book

My book, You Will Die: The Burden of Modern Taboos, is temporarily out of stock. The current version (second) is hand-bound and the demand for the book has outstripped my patience for cobbling books together with cereal boxes and glue strips. I will bind the remaining printings (roughly fifteen) which will bring the final print-run for the current version to roughly 210. For those who have ordered my book, you can find your book’s print number on the inside back cover where I marked each one in pen.

I am working on wrapping up the third version which should be professionally printed in the next couple months. I will probably make the remaining second version books available towards the end of August. To be notified when the book is again on sale, e-mail and put “notify” in the subject line.

The Blog

I spent the last several months being clobbered by “real” work (over 280 hours in June), and now am preoccupied with the third version of You Will Die. I will probably begin blogging again when the third version has been turned over to the printers, although I might be incited before that.

    Really enjoyed the second version which I purchased earlier this year… will there be major changes to version three? and are you still planning to write volume 2? I can’t wait to sink my teeth into Race, Religion, and Death.

    Version three will not have major changes. Some text and illustrations have been added and some sections have been rewritten.

    I probably won’t have the discipline to write the second volume if the first volume is not successful enough to pay the bills.

    Thanks for the compliment.

    In that case I certainly hope its a smash hit!

    I seriously think you could go on the Colbert Report or The Daily Show with a book as explosive as this… especially now that its going to be published professionally and available in quantity.
