PLA: The Book

I just finished reading PLA: The Book (located here) and I really like it.  RBCP, have you considered writing some more?  Maybe publishing?

Thanks, glad you enjoyed it!  I pretty much scrapped that project.  There's some more written on it that I never put on the page which maybe I'll stick up there one of these days.  Or maybe I'll actually finish the entire thing someday.  As of now I don't have plans to.

I did start another book project, though, and it's nearly completed.  It's more in short story format and includes many of the old PLA issues, stuff from phonelosers.org and stuff from my homepage.  I have a few different published friends now who seem willing enough to help me get it published one way or another.  And if none of that pans out, I'll take the Mentally Incontinent route and self publish it.

I demand to have PLA: The Book (Version by CountyKid) somewhere in the book. Maybe in the foreword. Or possibly as part of a chapter.

  Okay fine, if I can't get that. Then a Thank You in the thank you's section.

There were some guys on the bridge a while back who were going to write a book on the phreaking community.  I filled them in.  I don't know if anything ever came of it.

I remember that... I think they were the fuzz.  OK maybe not the fuzz  but they were really weird.. weirder than the normal weirdos that hang out on the bridge.

Is there any chance you could possibly upload them some where in a zip file so those of us with a genuine interest can have a read? Because I'd download it and take up precious bandwidth on your server just to show my gratitude.

Rather than hijack the "what are you reading" thread, I'm going to post this here.  I'm really good at bringing up old threads today.  I've been putting more effort into the book thing lately.  I know I've been saying "it's coming soon" for a few years now, but I think I really mean it this time.  I've been talking to some published friends and literary agents, getting advice and trying to move forward with all this.  I get obsessed with so many little projects of mine that I occasionally forget about the book thing.  But I really do need to make it happen soon, before books become obsolete.

It looks like the last time I updated this thread, I said that I'd scrapped the story idea based on that chapter that I'd put up.  Instead I worked on a book of short stories, all based on PLA issues, my homepage and other phonelosers.org things.  That version is pretty much done but I don't really like it.  So I'm moving in the other direction now, taking those chapters and fitting them around a story based on that first chapter.  In my opinion it's working out pretty good even though I think I'm horrible at writing actual stories.

The URL to keep an eye on is this one:

http://www.phonelosers.org/book/

I'd rather not send anyone all of the unfinished chapters, but I do promise to try and throw up another chapter or some other kind of information on there soon.  If I don't, feel free to reply to this thread and bug the hell out of me about it.

If you do make an honest effort and actually get your works published, I'll buy the book and spread it around. I'll be that prick who drops the name of an unknown author of an unknown book in the middle of the debates of Harry Potter versus Star Wars thread.

'cause, let's admit it; what you wrote for that first chapter/short story/introduction did catch a lot of our attentions. Now while I'm watching trev's videos and doing math work for college, I'll be reading what you've got written.

This is my only day off this week. I need to do everything at once.
