Some people have asked me where they can buy my two books. This is kind of them, and this post will answer those questions and more, read on for all of of the answers (and more!).

What are your books?

I’ve written two books, a story collection called Amazing Adult Fantasy and a novel called Giant Slugs they both came out in 2011.

Where can I buy Amazing Adult Fantasy?

You can buy it at Amazon or from its publisher (Mutable Sound) or physically in some bookstores; you can walk in and purchase a physical copy.

What are those bookstores?

In Chicago, you can buy it at Quimby’s or at Bucket O’  Blood. Both are very nice stores I recommend them.

Is there anywhere else?

Yes, but I can’t remember where at the moment. What is wrong with Chicago or online? Amazon even has used copies you can save some real $.

I already have Amazing Adult Fantasy where can I buy Giant Slugs?

You can buy Giant Slugs in New Zealand, a country that is halfway around the world. You can fly there on a plane and purchase it in a New Zealand book shop.

I am afraid of planes is there really nowhere in the United States that I can buy it?

No, I am afraid that at this time there is not.

Is there really nowhere else in the entire world that I can buy it?

Yes, there is the internet, you can wire money to the publisher (Lawrence and Gibson) and in a while the book will arrive on your doorstep or in your mailbox.

That’s cool but what if I want to read it for free online?

You are something of a shady bum but you can read parts of it for free online at The Collagist and at elimae and at Action, Yes.

That’s cool what if I want to read parts of Amazing Adult Fantasy for free online?

You can read parts of it for free online at elimae and the2ndhand and Lamination Colony and alice blue review and elimae and Feathertale and Mutable Sound and Necessary Fiction and NOÕ Journal and Caketrain (PDF). As well as other places but in print like Denver Quarterly and Fiction International; they’re waiting for you in the library.

Very nice now I do not have a need to buy it.

Dude that’s like less than half the book you will still get your $’s worth if you “lay out the coin.” Plus Republicans will close your local library.

But what if I am still overcautious and want to read the opinions of others I don’t know before I “pull the trigger”?

Dude it doesn’t really cost that much but you can read positive reviews here and here and here and here and here and here and here.

Very nice but where can I read positive reviews of Giant Slugs?

Dude said book was published in New Zealand and like no one has ever read it let alone written a proper review of it.

Dude that’s sad.

Dude I know, tell me about it, I slaved over that novel for ten years. But said novel’s good, take my writerly word for it!

Michael Clark liked it and blurbed it; Gabe Gudding did, too. Plus Gabriel Chad Boyer just said that he liked it. Writers named Gabriel are guaranteed to like it.

“Sweet!” So if I purchase your books with my dollars will you write me a personalized and polite and nice letter?

Yes I will be totally happy to do that, also I will draw you a picture of your favorite kind of animal; it will be my pleasure. Or if you want me to draw something else I will draw something else, just tell me what*.

*Caveat please be warned I am not a good drawer or letter writer.

OK, I’ll think about it.

Thank you!
