Ok, this is not The Book, but there is no way that The Book (with actual chapters, illustrations, commentary and such) could possibly be ready in time for anyone to order it for Squidmas. I really wish it could be, but I am much too swamped with Real Life.
So this is The Digital Cuttlefish, Vol. 2, which is merely the stuff I have written (well, lots of it, anyway–I did not include literally everything) in the year since Vol. 1 came out. I put this one out (in a hurry) because of a couple of requests, so that people could give it to friends (or enemies, I suppose) for the holidays. It does have some of my very favorites in it, and I must admit it was great fun revisiting the year as I rushed to put this together. Volume 1 is still available, too, of course. If Lulu has a way of doing a package deal, I’d be glad to put one together and save you some money.
I wouldn’t blame you a bit if you waited for the deluxe edition, but there is no way it will be out before the new year, and perhaps well into that.
Heh… boy, do I know how to write an ad…
