Dear Publisher

Fuck you very much for screwing with the awesome posts I’ve got scheduled this week with your new brand of WTFery.

While it is true that I myself have an amazing gift and deep appreciation for the exotically random, the lengths of the weird to which you now go are truly beyond the pale.

Seriously, to try and fuck with your clients (ie the readers who actually buy your shit) to the extent of printing the first page of a story on the left-hand side??  

It is just so unbelievably wrong that the most technically advanced super computers in the ‘verse could not even begin to calculate it. 

A book always starts on a right-hand page.  ALWAYS.

Is there no end to the levels you will sink?

Reads, rants, randoms & R+s. You've been warned. BTW, don't follow me if you're a GLBTQQphobic wanker. It won't end well. For you.

    That is just weird. Maybe they think they are being eco-friendly? No, just weird.

  2. Kaetrin says:


    Which book?

  3. Kris says:

    Tam: 'Bout time you acknowledged that I'm always right.

    Stephani: Well, typed.

    Kaetrin: You expect me to remember?? I only just read it this morning.

  4. Chris says:

    Well, obviously someone was around to get your heart restarted. 🙂

  5. Kris says:

    Chris: I think it was actually the uppers I take. 😛

    I just…maybe they mis-read their calendar and thought it was 1 April?

  7. Kris says:

    Orannia: Or they're just stupid dicks.

    I think it's probably the latter.

  8. Jenre says:

    Saving paper?

  9. Ingrid says:

    What?!?! That is so weird!!

  10. Kris says:

    Jen: Are you talking about their carbon footprint or their being tight arses? Cos I know which one I'd choose.

    Ingrid: I know! Freaked me out when I opened the book to see that. It's unnatural.

    It took me ages to figure out what you were talking about because my brain didn't want to accept that kind of shit happening. I'm doing my best frowny face in the direction of that publisher.

  12. Kris says:

    Nic, it took my brain a while to compute too. I kept closing the book and reopening it and flicking through the first pages in the hopes that I'd been horribly mistaken.

    I hadn't. 😡

  13. nic b says:

    There, there. *strokes kris' back*

    They're just evil bastards.
