Greetings:

With [b]Carny Sideshows: Weird Wonders Of The Midway[/b] (Citadel Press, March 2010) just weeks away from release, I've started putting together a few videos that will live on the carnysideshows.com website. These videos will also exist on youtube, and you can see the preview video here:

Next month's (March) Ballycast will feature an interview with the author. As the oldtime radio announcer used to say, "don't miss it if you can!"

Yep, nice work.... I wonder if that's a Nippulini nail, hmmm?

Also can't wait to see the book. I'm so excited, I think I may be moist.

Just got my copy in the mail--very excited!

(Flipped thru it, and I've already learned something: when Damien Blade swallows a sword, he looks just like Brett Loudermilk!)

Gonna sit down in my comfiest chair and start reading, tonight.

It is a wonderful book. A must for everyone that visits this section of the Café.

How can I get a copy?

I ordered mine from Amazon. I saw it at Barnes & Noble the other day, it's in the Cultural Studies section.

Thanks everyone! I had such a small window to put this together....I hope everyone likes it....and thanks to everyone who has been saying good things about it...it really does mean a lot....and makes those nights where I was crammed up in our extra bedroom typing worthwhile...

As I've been saying...it's not WAR AND PEACE...but then again...at least it's not WAR AND PEACE....

Try and order this book from your local independent bookseller, not Amazon or Barnes & Noble. Support your local community; your local bookstore can order it for you and get it in your hands within a week.

Thanks from all the independent booksellers,

Tim

You know what? I think I'll do that. As a partner in a mom & pop type shop I can sympathize.
Message: Posted by: Freak Prodigy (Feb 26, 2010 05:12AM)
Yes, coming from someone who is an editor of an independent zine (FOUND), supporting your local indie bookstore is the best all around.

Tim:

Don't know who you are....but I'm completely on board on that count! Do support your local indies! I have an indie signing scheduled for April in Salem, MA and hope to schedule more!

I support you in any way you can sell your book.

You come to my neck of the woods and we'll have a real event.

Berkeley likes sideshow & freaks.

I can supply the entertainment.

And everyone... buy the book! If you can't get it locally, DO buy it on-line.
If you love the subject matter, it's important to support it's publication.
( You know why...)

Thanks,
Tim
