NEW PROJECT: THE AUDIO BOOK OF THE DEAD
« on: April 15, 2010, 11:40:21 pm »
I'm planning on publishing a book once per year, with the best of PD writing in it.  Consider it a 96 page (possibly more) paperback version of Intermittens.  Format will be based on submissions, and it will either be a standard paperback, or something like the Book of the Subgenius.  Illustrations are welcome, too.  Heres the deal:

1.  Authors retain all rights to their work (it's "printed with permission").

2.  I front the initial production costs.  These costs will be taken off the top.  Any profit shown will be donated to the board, to help Faust maintain/upgrade things.  If it starts to sell elsewhere in any quantity, we can discuss as a group what to do with future issues.

3.  Submissions for the first book will be final on October 1st of this year.  I will then edit the book and set for a January 1st release date.  Not everything in the thread will be necessarily used, and editorial/content control is in my hands alone.  However, any actual changes to text will be passed by the author for approval.

Post submissions here in their entirety:

http://www.principiadiscordia.com/forum/index.php?topic=23981.0

However, do NOT comment in that thread.  Instead, discussion should take place here.

Who's in?

Don't tell me what to fucking do.  In exchange, I will not tell you what to fucking do.  Note that mocking each other's actions is still permissable under this system.

I'm definitely interested.  Do you want original submissions only or are previous pd postings subject for publication?  I'm sure plenty of people have things on here they're proud of, if the project is not aimed partially to generate new content.
EoC, you are the bane of my existence.

New or old.  Dump it in the hopper, and we'll see how it shakes out.

If there is anything of mine you'd be interested in, let me know. Honestly can't remember the last rant I posted...

No, no, no.  YOU choose your submissions, and YOU dump them in.  If they get used they get used.  There is no penalty for putting in 5 submissions and only having one or two used, so don't be bashful.

Okay, I'll take a look through my earlier stuff, see if there is anything worth submitting.

That's one of the big things you notice when you get older. The Establishment looks just like you. The Man is a middle-aged fat man that looks vaguely like one of your uncles. Right now, the man has long hair. (Specifically, that weird look where he's bald on top with a long pony tail in the back.) In twenty years, The Man will have tattoos all up and down His arms. That's the strangest thing to learn: The Man is just a man. The world isn't ruled by a powerful cabal of Illuminated Ones or alien Reptiloids. This planet is ruled by a bunch of dumb stinking apes.

And The Machine isn't even a machine. The Machine is us. We are the Machine. Every single one of us is a slightly off balanced cog in The Machine. There's no way to get out of it. Eventually we will all end up ground down by the normal wear and tear of everyday use. And the worst part is that there is no way to destroy the Machine. It will just replicate itself with even more broken-down people. There is no escape, make your time.

I've been working bit by bit on this project called the Om Nom Nomicon

It's an edited version of the necronomicon

http://www.principiadiscordia.com/cramulus/index.php?title=Omnomnomicon

it's not done yet, but you can get the gist of it.

do you think that is appropriate? (you'd probably just want to print an excerpt rather than the whole unholy thing)

DUMP IN WHAT YOU WANT.  NO SHIT.  The cutting and paring will happen in October.  I may use entire pieces or (with the author's permission) excerpts.

ETA:  That's pretty damned good.
