Thanks to everyone who came by our booth yesterday and picked up No Desire To Die, or Blank State, or our two new zines “Excerpts from the Early Writings of an Urban Wizard” and “Fantastic Tales of Amazing Individuals volume 1.” Your long talks in the scorching indian summer sun was all I needed to make it through this week.
If you’ve found our site because of something we said to you yesterday, shoot us an e-mail. I’m going to put up NDTD on the store this evening, but any email to firstname.lastname@example.org will let you know how to get your hands on things in the interim.
For those that didn’t hit the festival, a brief yet sombre look at it in light of Mayor Rob Ford’s proposed cuts to the city’s library system can be found here, featuring an interview with me and a video of Michael describing NDTD. But I can’t stress this enough: It is very important to not let any of these cuts go unchecked. Talk to your councillor, tell them how much events like Word on the Street mean to you. Little businesses like this one rely on it as their sole source of income.
For a man writing post-apocalyptic fiction, I don’t delight in seeing anything awful happen to my city. It’s more fun to make this up than to report it as its happening, I assure you. I will be writing my councillor, so that I don’t have to start writing non-fiction.
Thanks for yesterday.
