Thanks, Thanks, Thanks to everyone who put in pre-orders! Email firstname.lastname@example.org with ‘Steal Away Golden Calf’ to reserve yours! 1/4 of the first run has already been sold by pre order so grab one if you fancy today! Also look for it on Amazon and Etsy. Pre-orders are shipping Monday!
Go pick up a copy at finer ski shops and magazine retailers nearest you! Layout and design is always top-shelf with this lot. Sandy channels his inner Eric Pollard on another mediocre day on the well-salted glacier in Whistler with Rich Glass getting the shot. Viva print! Support your local.
I’m happy to announce, after a few years of chipping away, that a little piece of fiction that I wrote is available for pre-order via OneOfOne CopyHouse. There are many people to thank and without whom this wouldn’t have been possible – you know who you are. Below the images of the front and back cover is a short synopsis of the piece + information on how to place your order. Thanks for all of the support!
“Hammer is a kleptomaniac but the world outside his mind is strict and enforces public amputation for minor/major offenses. The State insists on it and – besides Hammer’s unfortunate familiarity with the town pillory – crime hasn’t been lower.
There’s a prosthetic black market that Hammer proudly boycotts and a union of prostitutes which he proudly doesn’t. There’s a license that requires winning a lottery and passing a multiple choice test to have children (our anti-hero tries to steal a test in order to raise a child soldier, who will hopefully kill a corrupt cop…) There’s tribal warfare, eggs raining down on people and whole families hidden beneath the floorboards where a baby winds up to sneeze…
Sardonic and comic; bleak, absurd and unnatural: this is Ben Wannamaker’s first novel.”

I am always very grateful to work with Jeff Schmuck, Phil Casabon and the King Network. Congrats to a great first issue and pick up a copy of Forecast for yourself. Look at how tight the design is! In this three-page interview, Phil and I explored his love of chess, the industry game and his method to moving skiing into the future. Always a pleasure.
