I got my copy of The Digital Cuttlefish, Vol.1 via snailmail on Monday, and I'm thrilled to have it. Delivery was a lot faster than the boilerplate on the order form would suggest, and the book itself looks great: sturdy binding, clean readable fonts and layout, striking simply-designed cover with the signature cuttlefish blog banner.I'm happy as a very happy Cuttlefish with a very good reason to be happy...
Good thing Lulu did such a good job, because the Cuttlefish's verse deserves the best. This stuff is more fun than beer and pretzels. Joe and I have been reading it over-the-shoulder whenever it pops up on Pharyngula, and now we're picking up the book at odd times and reading random bits aloud to each other when the mood strikes us.
Electronic copies and Cuttlefish's blog are great, but having the actual book to wave at holy-rollers and random passers-by is priceless. Now we're trying to decide who else we know deserves a copy.

"More fun than beer and pretzels"
Thanks to reader Ron Sullivan, I have my first review up on Lulu! So, since I am much too modest to adequately promote my own book, I will quote his review, and smile broadly to myself.
