Book Recommendations from Us

I've been meaning to post this for a while, but it seems like real life is catching up with us and the thought of posting a real blog post seems both futile and tiring. Like many other bloggers/podcasters I've taken to the Twitter to get my messages across, leaving little time to actually write up a thoughtful post.

That being said, I am severely behind in my posting and hope to change that in the near future.

First off, you may remember our friend Bill Maynard from show #118 where he discussed his upcoming book "The Terror Of Fu Manchu". Well, you will be glad to know that Bill has published his book and it is now available for your reading consumption. You can purchase it here. I saw Bill on Friday and he was very excited about finally getting the book done and up for sale, so please support him if you can.

Secondly, my friend and fellow hobo artists have been busy as well. M.R. Peterson AKA Halcyconsnow has written a book called Dedicat Ed, which is about a foul-mouth midget who aspires to be a basketball player. Yes, you read that right. His book is available in a Kindle-friendly edition here. Mike says about his book:
"I don't know if you read on the toilet or on the bus, or while you excrete while on the bus, but it's perfect for that.The book part of it is only 95 pages or so. Read aloud, the full version took about 150 minutes."
High praise, indeed.

Also, friend of the show, Adam "Apelad" Koford has published a compendium of his Laugh Out Loud Cat cartoons and is selling them online at Amazon as well. The newer book contains a foreword by Hobo High Priest, John Hodgman and is definitely worth your time and effort.

So there you have it. Some book recos from us to you. Please buy as many as you can and make my friends happy.
