Mad shout out to Poland!

June 16, 2012

Regionifically, Silesia!

It’s rare enough to see a review of P-ADLO in any form of media.  When one comes out in a foreign language, though — well, that’s pretty rad.  I was super surprised and pleased to see a review of it in Polish current events/culture magazine Ultramaryna, and even happier when I read the Google Translation of it.  You can see it here: Fallout: Genesis.

So, thanks to the Masowa Konsumpcja Kultury Masowej section of Ultramaryna!


Post-Apocalypse Dead Letter Office reviewed in Kansas Alumni Magazine

September 22, 2011

I wish I had a link to share, but Post-Apocalypse Dead Letter Office received an overwhelmingly positive review in the September (#5) 2011 issue of Kansas Alumni Magazine.  If you want to read it, you’ll have to join the Alumni Association, visit their office and buy one, contact them directly and beg for a copy, or check it out at one of the few libraries that subscribe to it.  I can share with you the most relevant (and altogether best) pull quote: “wildly inventive”.  Yay!

Post-Apocalypse Dead Letter Office write-up in

Hello, distinguished visitor

April 17, 2011

This is to let you know that a revised version of Post-Apocalypse Dead Letter Office has been published, and is available for purchase at Amazon (paperback and Kindle editions), Powells and Barnes and Noble and for special order at other, arguably worthier bookstores (for example, The Raven).  The published book is expanded, stylistically and grammatically improved and contains snippets of the handwritten letters project and an entirely new letter.  It’s really freaking great!

I’d love for you to purchase a copy but understand that that is not particularly realistic.  If you’d like to read it but don’t want to spend the dough, you can ask your local library to acquire it; a link to its website is probably listed somewhere here.  In certain ways, you requesting that your library purchase a copy is better for everyone concerned; if your library buys it, you didn’t have to pay for it directly, and other people can read it after you’re done with it.  Also, they may put a really nice plastic dust cover on it.

Thanks for visiting!


P.S. – This website, containing the original handwritten letter project (which are below, and snippets of which appear in the published book) will remain up, like, forever.  So if your reading backlog is bumble-humperton years long and but you really want to read Post-Apocalypse Dead Letter Office in its original form, you’ll be OK to let it slide for a while.
