We at the Adventure School have decided to list, available for pre-order, our upcoming anthology, the exact contents of which are currently a mystery to both us, the creators, and you, the potential reader/enthusiast/purchaser/ giggler. Why would you want to buy it? Well let me tell you. For one, it will probably sell out. Unladylike, last summer’s anthology, did, in a matter of days. (Yes, we know we made not enough of them.*) Now you can only read it online. Which in my mind, is sort of like owning a very cute puppy that you keep at the pound. You can go visit it whenever you want but eventually the evil overlords in charge will kill it and there’s nothing you can do. For two, it will be awesome. That’s guaranteed.**
And for three—and pay close attention because the awesomeness of this will amaze you—you can order one now, and for two more weeks, choose a student to help send to Adventure School. [This offer has ended. —Ed.] They’re all listed right here. It is so easy.
It’s like this (this is you talking): “I would like to own a book. Someday. Not right away, but sometime in the future, because I have commitment problems, or perhaps I don’t yet own a bookshelf. But also, I would like to donate to a worthy cause, but not world hunger or saving the whales. I hate whales, and gave the rest of my money to ending world hunger. But this last eighteen dollars should really go toward a young adventure scholar who wishes to pursue her studies in gender, race, and economic issues in comics. Yes, I’ve decided!” And then, after buying your anthology right here, a faerie flies in through the window and hands you both a cake and a pie. And then you win the lottery.
*Actually as a group we only sold one, although it did go for $175 at auction.
**Not actually guaranteed. Sorry.
