Please feel free to repost the images or to link back here, so we can spread the word about The Black Bestiary: An Alejandro Pardo Compendium (the follow-up to The Lost Journal of Alejandro Pardo).
It contains a new batch of creature entries (written by Budjette Tan), and a whole lot more narrative stuff, written by yours truly, with illustrations by Kajo Baldisimo, Bow Guerrero, and Mervin Malonzo.
(A closer look at the Table of Contents can be found here.)
If you haven't picked it up, please do so.
And if you've already got a copy, please tell your friends and family to pick up their own copies as well! Get extra copies too, if you can!
Spreading the word about the book will not just help with the chances for more future Alejandro Pardo compendiums, but will also serve as a rallying cry for the printed word.
I don't know about you, but I definitely prefer a world where people aren't just reading tablets or their phones, but are actually holding books, with covers and pages (and that awesome new book smell!), in their hands.
Power to the Printed Word!

Happy hunting, and remember, if you don't see it on the shelves, please ask for it.
And please spread the word, people!
The sooner we get those copies flying off the shelves, the sooner Summit will look at getting another Alejandro Pardo compendium out there...
