For whatever it’s worth, Boxing Day has become synonymous with crazy-sale-prices and one last burst of consumer frenzy before the credit card statements show up. So, forgive me as I crassly suggest some places to spend some of those nickels you got for the holidays.
Specifically, I’d like to suggest books (most are eBooks) written by people I know:
- Third Party Eyes — three stories of cybernetics gone wrong by me, Mike, and Jason Finnerty.
- Soft From All the Blood — seven horror stories by S.R. Jones
- the first two books of the Blackstone Erotica series, Red Monolith Frenzy & Green Fever Dream — these are very strange, horror-tinged erotica but very entertaining — by Justine G.
- My Phone Book — a history of phone ownership by mobile phone enthusiast Andrew Currie (this one is free!)
- The Front Nine — how to start the year you want any time by Mike Vardy
- From Left to Right Across Canada (and other books) — beautiful photography of Canada by Jordan Oram (the eBooks/iBooks are free! The coffee table book is pricier)
