Elephants On Acid Put To Bed

Wow! It's been almost a month since I posted. Last time I posted, I thought that work on my next book was winding down. That turned out to be overly optimistic. I still had a lot of work to do, but now it truly is all done. The manuscript has been sent to my publisher.

Meanwhile, thanks to Flora for keeping this place running while I took a leave of absence!

As proof that I really have been working on a book, the book itself -- Elephants On Acid: and Other Bizarre Experiments -- is now listed on Amazon, although it will only be in stores in October or November. Also, from what I understand, the cover that you see on the Amazon page is not the actual cover. It's just a placeholder. The design department hasn't finished work on the real cover yet.

The book is not about hoaxes at all. It's about, as the subtitle suggests, bizarre scientific experiments. Here's the advertising blurb that the publisher wrote about it:
When Tusko the Elephant woke in his pen at the Lincoln Park Zoo on the morning of August 3, 1962, little did he know that he was about to become the test subject in an experiment to determine what happens to an elephant given a massive dose of LSD.
In Elephants on Acid, Alex Boese reveals to readers the results of not only this scientific trial but of scores of other outrageous, amusing, and provocative experiments found in the files of modern science.
Why can't people tickle themselves? Will babies instinctually pick a well-balanced diet? Will the average dog get help in an emergency? Is it possible to restore life to the dead? Read Elephants on Acid and find out!

Hey Alex
Good to see you back!

Who are you again?

Seriously though, I've been meaning to ask
am I still able to get a copy of your first book
through you?

The real truth is that the alien robot Alex malfunctioned and they had to send to the home planet to get a replacement part.

There's probably no point in me saying again how excited I am about the book as you already know - I've told you enough times!

Oh, what the heck.
Yay 😊

Hi Sharruma,
Yeah, I still have paperback copies of my first book. If you're set up with paypal, you could just paypal me $15, and I'll send you one.

I think I do have a paypal account, but I haven't used it for years. This might be fun 😊

Assuming I get it working, or I set up a new account. What addy do I send it to?

I'll most likely want your latest book too when thats available 😊
