There ain’t nothing like getting your hardcover book in the mail after it’s been published.
This week must have been an exciting week for Jessica Stover whose book Aidmheil: In The Name of Adventure started shipping to all those who pre-ordered the book via her fancy book order me now page where you too, can pick up a copy.
Well, today was exciting for me as I was able to rip open the package on my doorstep and get my own hot little hands on the book in question. Man, a hardcover book. Draped in a velvet green. With a golden haiku on the back of it that read:
To be so awesome
Is a crime against nature.
So arrest me, fool.
Really, is there any more that can be said about the Aidmheil? The book is both clever in its humor, snarky in its wit, beautiful in its poetic goodness and sweeping in its scale. And if you are looking for something unique to pick up while there’s still time (and before Stover gets too famous to personally inscribe one for you) — this is the thing to nab.
Congratulations to Stover — it’s the beginning of many milestones, I’m sure.
