SOME of you are obligated by the societal overmind to buy me pretty things for my birthday. Me, I'm kinda chill about the whole thing, but if you're looking for something fast and easy, I'd suggest eBooks.

I can crack Kindle DRM. Heh Hehe Hahahahahaha! Hem. Sorry. I can crack Kindle DRM, so eBooks from Amazon are a fantastic idea. I can load them on any device under the sun, and I properly own what I'm given.

Here's my Amazon wishlist, which is still pretty accurate. A lot of the stuff on there is also available as ebooks, though I'll not turn my nose up at papery products or DVDs.

Some stuff from my Amazon wishlist that's available in e-format (in no order whatsoever):
The Apex Book of World SF
Cults, Conspiracies, and Secret Societies
Makers *
Elegy Beach
Occult America
Pandora's Star
Judas Unchained
Marooned in Realtime
The Peace War
Dragons Wild
Look to Windward
Overclocked: Stories of the Future Present *
Serenity Found: More Unauthorized Essays on Joss Whedon's Firefly Universe
Zoe's Tale
The Name of the Wind
The Mole People: Life in the Tunnels Beneath New York City

* Doctorow's books are not available for the Kindle, but if you buy a paper copy, I'll download the open eBook from Cory's site: http://craphound.com/makers/download/

If you're interested in wending further afield. Drive Through RPG has PDFs of the Dragonstar RPG supplements.

Or ya'know, whatever you feel like getting. Nothing's cool too, or wellwishes.

Well it's that time of year again, when the skies grow dark, and we're called to fuel the fires of industry through unbridled consumerism, lest the sun of commerce fail to rise upon a new day.

What? Too strained a metaphor?

As is tradition, I'm posting my wishlist here. This is for the benefit of my family, who all receive this journal in one form or another. Last year, I asked for books, and it was an unbridled success. This year I'm asking for books, because why screw with a good thing?

Most of the interesting stuff I've found can be found on amazon, so I'm just going to link a wish list from them.

A few things are strictly indy though, so I'm linking them separately:

Dresden Codak Art Prints - They haven't released a HOB collection yet (HOB is Dresden Codac's opus, and a brilliant bit of wierd SF), but they do have some of his funny/surreal stuff available.

Rice Boy - This is a fairly weird and surreal tale of one little person, and their involvement in greater events. Rice Boy can't really be described, save to call it beautiful speculative fiction.

Map of the Firefly Universe - Brought to us by one of Serenity's graphics designers, this rather fantastic poster maps out the Serenity Universe. It's not nearly as official as they try to make it sound, but it's still pretty.

Firefly Travel Posters - These lovely bits of SF art are stylized posters from the Firefly Universe.

WIERD old maps/blueprints/diagrams - Metro maps from the 1500s, blueprints that defy euclidean geometry, maps of countries that don't exist. I've a bug in my brain about this, but no actual links to site. If you've seen a map of an impossible place, diagram of something that never existed, or a blueprint from three realities to the left of here, send it my way.
