    Hey Folks,

    As I just posted to the CP listserve, I'm giggling a bit because I've been contacted by my publisher and have been given a press agent. This is all very amusing. My wife thinks it's great. I want a contract clause that I get brown M&Ms at all speaking engagements! And Bertie Bott's vomit flavored beans.

    Anyway, I'm also pleased (in an embarrassing way) to see that Amazon is offering one of those discounts if you order my book along with Don Schnell's. Odd, of course, since the book is not even going to be printed until September (so the printer tells me). But this is very cool for me since I studied Don's book like it was gospel, when I was starting out in CP.

    Yeah, I'm a maudlin geek. Sue me.

    Gee, Barry, you sure know how to live it up. ;P
    This is pretty big - you have every reason to be excited! Were I not a poor college student I'd have a copy reserved myself. Congratulations!

    Awesome Barry! I've got a spot in my botanical library already reserved for it - I only wish I could get it signed!

    I hope it has all the charm of your FAQ and the experiment conducted on eating human foot flesh. Do you make frequent mention of bulging muscles?

    You do realize that the vomit ones are a gatewat jelly bean, don't you?! Next thing you know you'll be doing booger, you'll run away and we'll find you on a park bench surrounded by grass and dirt beans...

    Congrats again, though! I'm going to be sure to preorder a copy- can't wait to get my hands on it (and it comes out around my birthday so I can work it in.)
