David Z. Greene has set up a fundraising campaign to raise the funds for printing, promotion and distribution to the shops of his newest book. I've just put down my order for the book, and I hope you'll take a minute of your time to check his pitch and animated preview.
It’s my ‘second difficult album’ of collected short stories.
'Where's North From Here?' is another 70 page dish of short, stupid stories featuring stolen records, table tennis, Mexican gods, massages, wrestling, a daft punk and more.
Goats, booze, suspense, heartache, laughter, goose-pimples, sweaty palms, running nose and deep cerebral stimulation are also guaranteed.
As for the quality of the work in the book, all I can say is it will be the single most greatest publication known to mankind since ‘Building Self-Confidence for Dummies’.
My previous book ‘Swimming With Shoes On’ seemed to be enjoyed but pretty much most people who wanted to throw me their opinion. It received great reviews, warranted a French publication and sold out of 4 print runs.
(A 5th printing is on it’s way.)
There’s different ways to contribute with some extra bits too. But it could just take £7 ($11) to help.
If you can help in anyway by pre-ordering the book or even spreading this news over the web, I would be forever grateful.
Please have a look here and see what you think....

A message from Sean Michael Wilson.
We now have a lovely KICKSTARTER drive up and running, for our documentary style graphic novel - PARECOMIC. Its a 200 page graphic novel we are working on now and very much enjoying, but need a bit of funding support on.
'Parecomic: Michael Albert and the Story of Participatory Economics' by Sean Michael Wilson and Carl Thompson, with an introduction by Noam Chomsky.
"...a graphic novel about something that affects us all: the system we live in - what's wrong with it, and how we might be able change it for the better! The recent upsurge in popular protest in the USA and around the world shows that people are not happy with the state of things. The Occupy movements show us that many people would prefer a better system, a model that will work for the 99%, not just the 1%."
So, please go and have a look at the info and video there, and pledge some funding support if you like the PARECOMIC project. The money is only a PLEDGE at first, it does not get taken out of your account now, its taken out about 2 months later, if the total target money is made. To pledge you just select an amount from the choices on the right side, and it processes it via amazon: kickstarter.com/projects/471898784/parecomic-a-documentary-graphic-novel.

And here we go!
Name all the characters (animals too!) which appear on the cover of NBC #3.
Answer(s): Charlie Parker, Mary Poppins, Charlie Chaplin, Alfred
Hitchock, Dormouse from 'Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan, the seagull and the peach from Roald Dahl's 'James and The giant peach'.
The question proved to be rather hard. Nobody guessed all the names, and "The seagull and the peach" appeared to be the toughest to get. Nonetheless we picked the winner with biggest 'score': Daniel Farrell! Congratulations Daniel!
Take a look on the NBC #3 cover again. All of the characters there have British roots. All but one. Can you tell which?
Answer: Charlie Parker.
This was the easier contest, nobody has sent a wrong answer. So we had to draw a winner and his name is... Dickon Harris! Congratulations!
Thank you all for taking part in the contest!
