Repetition Patterns - a story cycle by Ben Tanzer. Coming soon from Jason Pettus and CCLaP. Really.

Repetition Patterns, by Ben Tanzer

To say we are geeked about this would be quite an understatement. This is a group of our early Binghamton-inspired stories that we had always hoped someone, some day would be interested in publishing as a collection and we are thrilled that Jason Pettus and CCLaP have decided to do so. We are also thrilled to let you know that in collaboration with Jason we have revisited and re-mixed them and so even if you think you have read them before we believe you will be in for a newly pleasant and stimulating reading experience. To learn more about this project please visit the CCLaP blog here.

Many congrats, my man. You have become most prolific of late. Is this going to be in print or online? Just curious if I should order one or if I can download it?

Criminy. Another Tanzer book. I'm becoming progressively less accomplished all the time. Congrats, I suppose.

Congratulations, Ben!

Many thanks for the kind words gentlemen, even you Pete, we think. We are really looking forward to your thoughts. In terms of availability, we understand that CCLaP may go the Radiohead In Rainbow route on this one and so it will definitely be downloadable. It will also then be free, technically. Nice, right?

Nick, this is going to be an electronic book, available in five formats (PDFs for American and European laserprinters, Sony Reader, Palm and PocketPC/Windows Mobile), under a "pay what you want" system like Ben mentioned with Radiohead. In fact, it'll be the kickoff of CCLaP's eBook publishing program; I'm hoping to get half a dozen such books out through 2009, starting with "Repetition Patterns." There will of course be many more details available once the book actually comes out, which I'm praying will happen before Halloween rolls around.
