"There's an itch in my mind, but I can only find it occassionally. It's like rummaging through a box of ancient refuse and incomprehensible knick-knacks and suddenly feeling the two-pronged bite of a snake between your fingers; you recoil. shrinking, but your curiosity is irreversibly piqued. You want to empty the box into the light of day regardless of the danger - or maybe even because of it."
- Mac Tonnies, via the cover of Posthuman Blues, Volume 2 (2005-2006)
Just in time for Xmas, Redstar Books announces that the second compilation of posts from Mac's Posthuman Blues blog, Posthuman Blues (2005 - 2006) Volume II, is now available, and can be purchased here.
The foreword to this volume is written by Radio Misterioso's own Greg Bishop.
"Posthuman Blues is of a piece with the Lost Generation of the 1920s and the Beat generation of the 1950s. Tonnies spoke for his generation with passion, eloquence, and a rare insight."

Update, January 6, 2014: I've just received my copy, and I'm happy to report that this volume is illustrated with photos and a number of Mac's drawings!
