Bloggish Ramblings

April 24, 2019

Hi, I'm Lathrop, doing a guest blog because I'm told Kurt is busy recording and editing the audiobook version of SuperGuy.  I'm going to come straight out and say I think this is a bad idea.  I know it is.  This is what's wrong with technology today.  It's way too easy for people to do things like this.  Everyone has a computer and the software to make a podcast or an audiobook (or write a freaking book), but no one...

First, I need to say hello to anyone visiting the site from Croatia.  So, hello.  My book is officially out in that country now and I'd be remiss if I didn't acknowledge anyone with enough interest to search me out on the web and stumble across these ramblings which will hopefully someday be outlawed by some right-minded governing body.

Second, I need to spread the news about the podcast of SuperGuy by Faux...

The Croatian translation of SuperGuy, known as SuperTip, is officially out in Croatia.  I know because I now have two hardback copies of the Croatian version in my possession thanks to the publisher VF Libris and translator Sanja Petriska.  It comes packed with 31 footnotes, including the original five or so of mine, and filled out by the rest that have to explain things like what JC Penney, Younkers, and Cinnab...

There are a number of things that are done, almost done, or not really close to done but should have been done awhile ago, that are right around the corner now.  For example, in the Done category, is the sequel to SuperGuy.  That's finished, as you may know from reading the previous post, but that just means other folks get involved and it all becomes a thing and no one gets to read it for months yet.  As for other t...

This is a special announcement to announce that in the next sentence or two I'm going to announce something special.  Maybe right now in this sentence, but unfortunately not.  The sequel to SuperGuy is officially finished, at least on my end, that being all the making up of stuff and writing it down.  Now it's time to wait and see if it'll see daylight beyond my computer.  I know all four of the fans of the first boo...

Here's something special for the SuperGuy completest. If you already have the book in all forms (ebook, paperback, hard cover), the comic book (there isn't one), the Blu-ray version of the animated series (there isn't one), the action figure (there isn't one), and a copy of the live action movie (there isn't one), then you must get the Croatian translation of the book, now available from VF Libris in Croatia.

Now...

Yes, there is going to be a sequel to SuperGuy.  If Kurt won't tell you, then I will.  I know everybody is asking the question, and by everybody I mean his mother, but since he hasn't announced it yet, I figured I'd just get it out of the way.  Not that it requires as much attention or formality as an official 'announcement' or anything.  Or perhaps it would be better if there was a whole roadmap of future releases l...

Anyone reading this from the Washington, D.C. area?

I've noticed an abnormal amount of visitors from that particular region recently and I don't really know what to make of it.  If the visitors were from Russia, then I would know immediately that I was being swarmed/attacked/awkwardly cuddled by sinister Russian bots, but this is Washington, D.C.  Maybe our government has mistaken my site as a front for a secret Russi...

Amazon has lowered the price of the paperback version of SuperGuy to $5.33, which is a ridiculous discount.  That's like a lot of percent.  Unfortunately, some unlucky soul accidentally bought it, so most likely the price is going to start going back up.  So I'm just saying that you might want to jump in and buy it now before it gets back to double digits.  I mean, can you imagine how unlucky you'd have to be to pay...

Amazon is at it again.  After a foolish attempt at running the cover price of SuperGuy for awhile, they've decided to start dropping it.  It's now at $7.44 with no bottom in sight.  You could wait a few more days and see how low it goes, but even right now it's cheaper to buy multiple copies instead of wood for the fireplace this winter.  I used a lot of large words, which have been proven to burn longer, not to ment...
