Why don't more people start publications like BEAR PARADE?

BEAR PARADE is such an excellent model for a publication.

I'm surprised no one has tried to mimic or follow after what Gene Morgan is doing.

More people should publish e-books in HTML format.

Maybe for the next next issue of Lamination Colony I will publish one long work.

I would be very picky about it. If you have something long(ish) that you think would make a good e-book, please send it to me. But don't be sensitive about it. If you'd be mad if I didn't want to do it, please don't send it to me. I don't like hurting people's feelings.

I have about 3/4ths of a thing that would make an e-book, I think. I am working on it now to fill the void I feel after finishing my collection. I'm not sure what I'll do with it. It does not have a name yet. I am trying to write in a different way than I do most often.

The first sentence right now is: After I sold my teeth to the museum, I used some of the money to buy a Dachshund.

I am glad I'm not as bored as I was yesterday tonight but I feel like maybe I will be again soon.

Bear parade is quite phenomenal. When you say e-book, what kind of length are you pondering here?


good prathna. do it.

i don't know the length yet. right now i have about 2500 words in 10 short sections. i don't know how long until the ending but i hope not that much longer.

Heh, I am putting together a book by Sean Kilpatrick that is almost exactly like a Bear Parade book.

I feel like a second-tier presidential candidate.

"Me too me too."

But the book's been in the works for several months. It's through Magic Helicopter Press, which is a new thing. I've not promoted all this yet because there's nothing really there, yet. I should work harder. Be faster. Speed. Meth.


good. i like sean kilpatrick. i like the website for magic helicopter. i am excited about it.


in that first sentence from my thing, i changed to the word 'teeth' from 'dick'. that's more mature, right?

more mature.

i think i wrote either the first chapter of a novel or at 8500 word short story

i feel compelled to do something

magic helicopter looks nice, i like it

bear parade needs competition to keep it fresh. we will suck if no one challenges us for the title of "e-book champion of the world."


i finished the first draft. it is 3700 words.

i like that first sentence. anything with teeth is good.

the word "dick" is immature.
