One year, six months, eight days, 638 pages, 222,851 words, and 1,025,891 characters after I started writing it, my novel Gone Whalin’ is available on Amazon in paperback and on Kindle. Previously on MeFi Projects I've shared my two collections of bad Wikipedia writing, but this is the book I'm most proud of. It's about a college student who starts waking up on a whaling ship every other day, the adventures he has at sea, and the scheming that goes on between his roommate and the dean of his school to exploit his situation while he's back in time. You can read the first three chapters and watch the book trailer here! [more inside]
I just co-self-published my second collection of hilariously bad Wikipedia writing. It's over 200 of our favorite entries, with our own original commentary, plus a foreword by Mike Nelson of RiffTrax & MST3K! [more inside]
For the past two years, Josh Fruhlinger and I have been running a blog collecting our favorite examples of hilariously bad writing from Wikipedia, (seen here in the blue.) After expanding to do a podcast, (seen here in projects), we decided the only logical next step was to write a book - and now it's out! Over 200 entries, with our commentary on each one. Available in paperback, or on Kindle, and you can download a free PDF of the first fifty pages on our site!
