There’s a new book about Transmetropolitan out!

Why should any of you care? Well, because Transmetropolitan is pretty keen, that’s why. Plus, our very own Canadian ex-blogger, Chad Nevett, edited it. Plus, it has a bunch of essays by smart people like Julian Darius, Patrick Meaney, Ryan K. Lindsay, Sean Witzke, Johanna Draper Carlson, Sara K. Ellis, Jason Michelitch, and a few others whose work I’m unfamiliar with (sorry!). Oh, and … well, me. Yes, I have an essay in the book, but I imagine it’s only in there because of those compromising photos I have of Chad. I mean, there can’t be any other reason! I wrote something that I’m sure will cause everyone to realize that everyone else’s essays are really, really good, and I encourage you to go buy the book, even though I haven’t actually read it yet. I will bet money that it’s quite awesome! Here it is on Amazon! So if you’re interested in reading a lot about Warren Ellis’s and Darick Robertson’s nifty cyberpunk-ish classic, go check it out! [Edit: As noted in the comments, you can get the book on Kindle, too – here’s that link!]

It hasn’t been widely hailed as the seminal work of ground-breaking anti-superhero fiction, or a classic tale of the dangers of unquestioningly pandering to popular opinion, but this is exactly what it is.
