Pub Day!

CouchYes, it is the day to get ye to the pub. And whether you do or don’t, we recommend taking a copy of Benjamin Parzybok’s debut novel Couch with you. It’s publication day for Couch: yay! Ben starts a bi-coastal for the books on Friday at Powell’s (should be a party!)

Ben posted a Big Idea on Scalzi’s Whatever and got a trigger-pulling response, gave a cool-headed (inspired by our Pres-Elect??) reply, and everything ended well.

Order your copy here. If you’d like a signed or personalized copy and can’t get to one of the readings, you can order one from Powell’s or: send us a note and we will make sure your copy gets signed.

    Man…that tour just JUMPS right over the center of the country… 🙁 So sad…

    You’re absolutely right! Sorry about that John. Fingers crossed once the book takes off we’ll set Ben up on a cross-country Couch carrying odyssey.

    If this couch indeed floats, as I recall the interview saying, he should also cross the Atlantic and tour the UK too (and maybe even Europe, and from there Asia or Africa, and from Asia he can tour Australia, and from there the Antarctic! There’s nothing can stop a man with a floating couch!)

    LOL! Look what I started! In all seriousness, this tour looks great and I think Ben will have a lot of fun. I’m looking forward to digging into this book.

    Maybe while sitting on a couch.

    I’m looking forward to the book too. The idea of a couch odyssey had me sold straight away.

    (But Antarctica should be considered. The penguins will need this book, no doubt!)
