Actually, J. -- a simplification of your hilarious Roberta intro might work well.

I considered that, but there are too many references to some guy named DeWitt.  I don't know.

Other people who would probably write blurbs for me:

Sunni Maravillosa (I think we all know Sunni. :) )

Bob Murphy (Of LRC and Mises Institute, author of Chaos Theory and Minerva)

As to 'collected works' it was the least clumsy thing I could think of.

Actually I like "Collected Works" (that's what it is, after all), I just wasn't sure how it would go over with people who don't know you.

I think the "what if"'s should definitely go in there.

I"ve also seen reviews on the first few pages of a book - before the title page.  That may be an option as well.

As far as I know, there's no way to put text on the insides of the covers, so it would have to be additional pages.

I've seen text on the inside of a paperback cover, but not a hardback.
Additional pages sound good to me too. (But two pages, right and left side, are sufficient, including the "what if".) Don't think Claire's Intro should be a part of it.

OK, I can see where this would work with the two covers as Madame Axe did them. Forget the other stuff I said.

The "What if" segment on the PR page preceding the Title page, is perfect -- the sort of thing that would go on the back cover. It's all that's needed to "explain" the book (not that it explains anything).

Now -- Which/whose "reviews" do you want? They should be fairly short, or I can take excerpts from them to fit the pages. Let me know and I'll contact them (or if they're here at TCF, they can just submit here, or PM me). There's room for several if they're not too long.

BTW, do you want the book/movie/music reviews in the book?

Sunni agreed. Bob is emailed. I'd like one from Joel.

Cat Farmer maybe? She has complimented my stuff in e-mail a few times. She might be amenable to blurb writin'.

I'll give it some more thought.

I could shrink the back cover graphic and put a blurb or two underneath it; let me know what you decide (and thanks for the compliments re the covers)

Who's this lovely lady who takes such beautiful photos and has been with TCF so long, but who posts so seldom?  I'm hurt!  Hurt!

You've got it.  Gimme a day or two and I'll PM you.

Aw, shucks.  (blush)

Mostly I am busy at my own place, and with my kids.  When I have time to visit other places I usually just :lurk:

"...polite society"

Pretty amusing little thread. I don't take well to being called a liar.

Also, my 'alternate ending' could go in 'Apocrypha'. :P

Oh, and there never was a part 2. I decided it stood well on its own.

Nice... I like it. I've added it to the book.
The TOC is getting too long for one page.  :-)

BTW, have you got any Notes, Apocrypha, or other pieces noone else can find that you want to send this way? I'm not sure which unfinished pieces you want to add -- or are you editing them?

P.S: Do you want "micropiece" to remain in lower case, or with a capital M?

Nice story, George. Part 2 appears to have gone into the great bit bucket in the sky. :(

I've added your "...polite society" link to the first post in this thread. 

Is it a different version from what was published in your old Lulu.com book?  I have the PDF of that book, and could probably extract the text from it if needed.
