Hey, look what just showed up! One of the first actually printed copies of the WTF, Evolution book! The rest aren’t coming until October, but you can preorder one now from Amazon, Powell’s Books, Barnes and Noble, IndieBound, or possibly some other places I’m not cool enough to know about.

Books are the plane, and the train, and the road. They are the destination, and the journey. They are home.
