"A classic in the nascent field of glitch studies".

Remember that mis-scanned book I posted about a few days ago? Greg Allen is selling a print version!

Well-Meaning Thoughts On Wohlgemeynte Gedanken

In fact, between the time I started this post last night and this morning, Google Books has removed the distorted copy of Wohlgemeynte Gedanken from its site. In its place now is a plain scan, low-res, but entirely legible, and a digitally generated cover image [but with the same, mangled title]. A side-by-side comparison [above] shows the same underlying scans, which means the distortions--and the fixes--all happened in post.

It also means I'm glad I grabbed the full PDF when I did. And that I formatted it, created a cover, and made it into a print version. Instead of the distorted black and white cover Google Books [still] shows online, I went with a beautiful full-color shot of the gold-stamped leather binding.

Also, while looking for a "Previously" link, I realized that somehow I had never posted about one of my favorite books, A Million Random Digits With 100,000 Normal Deviates.

So now I have.

    Finally, a book worthy of requesting in a Kindle edition.

    The demographic for "A Million Random Digits With 100,000 Normal Deviates" seems interesting since I get Male Testicular Exam Model Anatomy as a suggested item.

    What do them random number buffs do in there spare time?
