You know how irritating it is when the publisher drops the ball and doesnt make a matching set of covers?

aka Look, over there, an author who cares about his fanbase ;)

Why?!  After all of that hard work and due diligence, why?!

Am I the only one that notices the misplacement of the "New York Times Best... blah blah" block?  It does not match the other two twinsies...  That bothers me more than the actual art difference in the original cover.  I guess since the artwork matches, the word arrangement does not matter?  ::)

We should make a Bakker Bashing thread :P

Ok, I'll start ...

Bakker, FUCK YOU for being Canadian, making it harder on me to attend the ZCon thing, you fuck! You fucking going or what?! No pressure, fucker - just "fans" spending scratch to come see ya, a real bore-fest, right? Yeah, nothing better than dissing your readers, just take a great big giant shit on the whole fucking thing and when you're asked about it act like you've explained it already too many times ...

Oh, and your fucking naming conventions is fuck all, biiotch! Thought you clever to come up with a way to make the readers slow down on your shit, eh? Well, "friend", it's bull-SHIT! You know how many books I got through thinking Inchoroi and Ishroi were the same fucking thing only to come to this forum to find out one of them are aliens ... FUCK! Fucking aliens? Fuck me ...

You got a way with words, young scribbler, but fuck, man, could've made the names a little easier - or at least pronunciations in parenthesis ... fuck ...

And died quickly ... may be if I created a separate bitch thread it would've been more successful.

What a stupid f****** idea that turned out to be.....that's why we can't have nice things.

Seriously, a heartfelt round of applause to the moderators. Madshire, I know I've been troublesome recently, and I have to take my share of responsibility (as instigator.....you know, the guy who says, "Hey, sounds cool! Go ahead!) for today's shitstorm. I am sorry.

I'm now going to have dinner, pick up groceries, listen to some good music and read philosophy. Again, thanks for your rarely-flagging patience. I'll try to do better going forward.

Cheers!
