Okay, now I’m rolling my eyes really hard. Not yet completely freaked…until this happens twice.
Via the excellent kerithwyn:
Unfortunately, I need to report an “oops” regarding the lulu.com printing of Raetian Tales 1: A Wind from the South. I ordered it and received the shipment very quickly…only to find that while the cover was correct, the interior text was that of another book entirely, some sort of evangelical text: http://www.lulu.com/content/387049
And goodness, just look at the blurb on this:
Written from a completely Christian perspective, Steve Aiken has just released his fourth book: There Will Be No Rescue. As a former police officer, bodyguard, D.C. lobbyist, and radio talk show host, Steve tells the story of his fascinating life with a self-help approach that will certainly encourage the reader. From the pinnacle of success to absolute ruin and public scorn; from breaking his neck to coming back years later and winning a state racquetball championship; From running one of the most heated congressional campaigns in the country to losing almost everything in his life again, Steve holds nothing back in sharing the life lessons he has learned.
Um, well, neither do I. Is it too much to hope that Lulu will reverse the compliment and publish the contents of A Wind from the South inside that guy’s covers?
…Oh, well, okay, I guess it is. Never mind. But back to —
Life Lessons DD Has Learned and Holds Nothing Back in Sharing:
*Never tug on Syndrome’s cape.
*Never play cards with a woman called Doc.
*Never get into a land war in Chryse Planitia.
*And the best of the rest of them are here.
