Grumble. Looks like I’ll have to wait for the paperback…

J. D. Tuccille has announced his new book, High Desert Barbecue, which looks like a lot of interesting fun.

In fact I’ve been waiting for it with such anticipation I was ready to violate my “No Kindle” rule when he said the paperback is still in production. Alas I use Linux and am emphatically not a computer geek, and when I looked to see if anybody had done a free Kindle reader for Linux I ran into my old nemesis, Linux Explainer Guy. “It’s simple! All you need to do is [learn Serbo-Croatian or whatever the hell language the explainer just lapsed into so that you can follow his instructions, which are probably perfectly clear to him and God but make no sense to me.]” Linux Explainer Guy kept me away from Linux for years.

But I’m gonna buy the paperback, because the book looks great and I’ve always enjoyed Tuccille’s blog – except that he doesn’t post enough.

ETA: Spoke too soon. The trade paperback is available from one vendor now.

About Joel

You shouldn't ask these questions of a paranoid recluse, you know.

    At Amazon you can download a free kindle app for linux if you have a Chromium web browser. I use Firefox and have not yet figured out if you have to boot Chrom to READ the things that way or not… but what the heck, it’s all free.

    Damn you, Joel. You scooped me. Happens I’ve been in possession of a .pdf review copy of the book for several days but have been too busy deadlining to do much about it.

    I’m only about 30 pages into it, but yep, I’m pretty sure you’re going to like it. There’s this character named Rollo who — while less couth than you — is a “feral weirdo” who (as the story opens, though not for much longer than that) lives in a hermit lair in the Arizona highlands.

    Thanks, just downloaded to my Kindle. Took about five seconds. Less than three dollars.

To the stake with the heretic!
