All this week, James Tadd Adcox is opening his Google Chat/Skype to anyone who wants Tadd to read to them. Here’s some info from his blog:
Monday through Friday [this] week, I will read you a story if you contact me through Gmail or Skype. The story will be from my first book, The Map of the System of Human Knowledge, which came out this week from Tiny Hardcore Press. I will be at my computer working from 10 am to 6 pm, Chicago time, so that’s the best time to contact me, if you want me to read to you.
All of the stories are fairly short, between 1 and 5 minutes maybe.
This is a good thing to do if you are wondering whether you would like the stories in this book, or also if you just want someone to read to you for 1 to 5 minutes.
My Gmail address is jamestaddadcox AT gmail DOT com. My Skype name is jamestaddadcox.
I am excited about this.
I just got this book in the mail last week, and started digging into it myself. It is full of so much goodness, and the way the stories hang on you feels like newly laundered clothes, or maybe the way feathers would feel against our skin if humans were feathered creatures. A feeling like we could take flight at any moment if we simply raised our arms high enough and pushed against the air beneath us and above the ground.
