The Campaign of Hate



Over on the Talking Squid, I am writing about how much I hate myself and why you should buy Twenty-Six Lies/One Truth. It was simply too unseemly to do it here.

You may have noticed, in fact, that there is a bit of hate beginning to form. Some people, they want love. Some people, they want balloons. Me, I'm happy with hate.

You've got to love some of these pieces, so check them out:


There'll be more.

Want to take part? It's simple: Title your post 'I Love to Hate Ben Peek', and let yourself go. Just drop a link to the book in at the bottom, like so:

Twenty-Six Lies/One Truth, written by Ben Peek, illustrated by Anna Brown, and a cover by Andrew Macrae. Buy it from Amazon, buy it from Wheatland Press.




(EDIT: As more hate comes in, I'll add it to the list. So check back every now and then.)

I thought I'd somehow jumped the queue until I realised you were listing people alphabetically by first name! I hate that about you.

heh. i did it cause the friendslocked journals are anonymous...

It's kinda strange doing this kind of thing in a friendslocked entry. Those guys must really hate you!

You are correct. I do find your campaign a little....wrong.
Who on earth are all these slavish minions anyway?
You know one day I'm gonna come visit you and it's gonna be all like, crazy American warriorchildren surfing and flying and bombing up the city. And I'll have to get on a boat and travel up Parramatta River
Possibly I will need to rescue male beauty queens from ravishing hordes of conservatives
And when I finally find you, you will be the GodKing of a community of pygmy altfic readers.
Spooky.

i will start making mumblish, distorted recordings to send you later tonight.

Excellent. I will release them in a special limited batch of 455 on my 3" CDR label, selling them for like $35 each, and they will be spectacularly successful!

Tell me about it! It's going to be all over next season's runways.

it's a shame they're not smaller, tho. maybe i should look into finding smaller, cuter badges.

The thing that saddens me is that I just don't feel the hate being reciprocated to the same level. Unrequited hate, don't it make you wanna cry?
benpeek
Nov. 24th, 2006 02:32 am (UTC)
