Have you seen this book?

ZippercoverSomeone let me know that they had found a copy of The Zipper on My Bible is Stuck at a Barnes & Noble… which is very odd. Because I published that book, and we never sold any copies to B&N, nor any other book source. It was available to/through some of them, but all the ones we actually sold were sold by me at Beaglefest and other conventions, and really, there were only a couple dozen of copies made. So if any of you have seen non-used copies for sale elsewhere, I’d be very interested in knowing; please email me at questions-at-aaugh.com. (And if anyone’s wondering why I’d bother to publish a book just to sell a couple dozen copies: when I was publishing Schulz’s Youth, the collection of cartoons Schulz had done for the Church Of God, I also licensed the rights to sublicense collections of the cartoon. My hope was to find a publisher that was already involved in the Christian specialty market who might want a series of smaller books, more in the Happiness is a Warm Puppy format, breaking the strips into themed groupings. I created two sample books: a square version of this gaudily-colored book, and the black-and-white God’s Children, which focused on younger kids. When I wasn’t able to find a publisher for them, I figured I’d take the work that I’d done and make them available via print-on-demand, just so it didn’t go to waste. I had to change the size of the books in order to match the print-on-demand system I’d be using, making God’s Children a larger square book, and making this one non-square. The cover worked better as a square, but I’m still kinda proud of the design.)

AAUGH Blog reader Natalie contacted me the other day, because she had a question about book adaptations of A Charlie Brown Christmas, and for obvious reasons, I was on the top 12 people on her list to answer it. (And besides, really, the question was to some extend about my guide …

On-air interview

I was interviewed by Ken Gale for WBAI’s Hour Of The Wolf (which is actually two hours, wolves must be bad at telling time) last night. We did touch on Schulz, although largely it was a wider-ranging talk on my publishing efforts. You can find it in the WBAI Radio Archives (but …
