Vandermeer's list

                                                           Dear readers,

Here's a list Jeff Vandermeer posted on Ecstatic Days; I've simplified it to fit any book, though you should go by and see his new books from FSG Originals as well. Jeff is one of those writers who is good at all the things writers have to do these days, including marketing.
