Book written by Peterman

Some know about this, many more do not.

PNWetfest 2009 fell upon a date very close to our own venerable peterman's birthday. I only met Peter just over a year earlier, but I instantly felt a kinship to this crazy, hard-swilling crazy mother. And I loved his rants and writings on ADVrider. Much of it was truly poetic...in the most visceral, raw sense.


For his 60th birthday, I decide I wanted to publish some of his work over the past year or two in a book to present to him at wetfest. I did just that, and a few lucky FF's received one of the limited first run. He had no idea about it.

But, as some have found out about this, I have been asked about getting their own copy.

This was never meant to make any money for me, and I have absorbed all of the cost of the initial printing and shipping and gave the six copies I printed away for nothing.

I thought it would be cool to post a link to the book for anyone who might want one for their bookshelf. It is a good quality book and some of the work is genius.

The price of the book is $6.43 plus shipping. Of this, I receive nothing. I have arranged it so that $1.00 from each book will go to peterman; because I believe an artist should be paid for his work, even if it is just a dollar. The rest goes to the large, probably multi-national conglomerate printer-website Lulu..which I am sure has overpaid CEO's, overcharges for shipping, destroys the environment and celebrates every book sale with a toast of baby seal's blood...but hey, they printed the book for us!

So, here it is. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. It fits nicely in a pannier and it is great to pull out by the campfire, and read a post or two while sippin' an adult beverage before retiring for the evening

And be sure to check out the free preview before you buy!

And yes, peterman has approved of this.
