I Wish I'd Written Get Off the Unicorn

What do most people who buy 26Lies also purchase?

Lots and lots of Anne McCaffery, including such fine titles like, No One Noticed the Cat, If Wishes Were Horses, and Get Off the Unicorn. Occasionally, they also buy books by Elizabeth Bear (matociquala) and books about horses.

Well if it makes you feel any better I haven't bought any of Anne's books from Amazon.

And I still own my copy.

Reading is good. Buying is even better.

Equality has its virtue.

*blink*

Well, color me astonished.

Those writers are not the first to spring to mind as compatible with a man who loves the words "cock" and "cunt" so very, very much.

Just a desperate attempt to try and tie two seemingly unrelated books together.

i dunno. i know at least one person who read the book and who digs anne m. it's a cool thing, the diversity some people have in their reading habits.

Granted it's a balancing act with some of your readers hardcore punks and others McCaffreyians and nary a thread between them.

One of the stories in Get Off The Unicorn is out-and-out alien porn. It's not good. Trust me.

Well, I bought that book, and then probably something from www.vidzofoz.com since I was shopping online and had the old credit card out. I may have also purchased some cat litter that day. I'm just a shopaholic really.

Oh; you meant something else? Lol.

Hmm. I almost wonder if that's me, because I bought 26Lies and I've looked at McCaffrey and horse books recently. Which would be interesting, because I haven't actually bought any of them: I was just checking them out for bookpost linkage and idle curiosity purposes.

(What I bought in the same order as 26Lies was Kenneth Oppel's Skybreaker, an Aimee Mann CD, and a Ray LaMontagne.)
