    This looks both exciting and awesome!

    (For anyone associated with the project reading this, though, please ensure that the spelling of “foreword” is fixed at some point…)

    I have seen the interiors for this book, and it is truly the bees knees.

    Between it dropping @ Baltimore and the Zuda crew being Harvey nom’d out the keester, I think I need to be there. Perhaps I will become a shelterless vagrant for the weekend and tweetblog about it until I am mugged.
