Today was the mack daddy day for cool stuff in the mail. First to arrive: My personally inscribed copy of Eastern Standard Tribe by Cory Doctorow, shipped from Borderlands Books, San Francisco’s finest purveyor of Cory Stuff (he’s doing a signing there this very evening! If you’re in SF, go!). Second: My review copy of Vienna Teng’s latest album Warm Strangers. I dig Vienna’s work and she was one of the very first people I reviewed on IndieCrit, so I feel like I have something of a special connection to her (although, of course, she’s undoubtedly entirely unaware of me, so this special connection stuff only goes so far). Third: My CafePress copy of The Android’s Dream, which I ran off to spare my wife from having to read it on the computer screen. It’s filled with grammar and spelling errors, I’m sure, but who cares? It’s still cool. And no, you can’t have one. Like the Agent to the Stars copy I ran off, this is a special edition for my wife. Living with me has to have some compensations, don’t you think.
Mack daddy! All right, I’m done showing off my trinkets and baubles.
