I’ve been teasing this project on Facebook for a few months and today it can finally be revealed!
Dave Hinchberger of The Overlook Connection Press has been working with artist Glenn Chadbourne to produce a series of new dust jackets for Stephen King’s novels. Each cover is limited to 500 copies and singed by Mr. Chadbourne. Each jacket also includes a new essay from King-world authors ranging from Rocky Wood, Stephen Spignesi, Bev Vincent and even Anthrax’s Scott Ian.
Guess who was asked to write the jacket text for Sai King’s Dreamcatcher. Yes, yours truly!
Let’s just say it was the most difficult and fun writing assignment I’ve ever had the honor of completing. The fact that it had to come in at approximately 450 words, was a challenge all on its own.
Me, I’ll be framing one of my copies just as soon as it arrives.
And Dave, thanks for asking and having enough faith in me to give me the chance to participate in this project.
Recently I’ve been working on setting up a ton of public access PCs and getting all of the systems to talk to each other when it comes to our ILS, printing software, and computer time management. All of this deals with software “types” I’m familiar with due to my 2003 book The Neal-Schuman Directory of Management Software for Public Access Computers, co-written with my friend Louise Alcorn. Granted, none of the software I’m using today even existed back then, but the issues haven’t changed all that much.
Looks like Rowan & Littlefield is highlighting our Emerging Technologies book at the Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals (CILIP) 2015 conference in Liverpool.

My article on CSS Style Guides, published in the May 2001 issue of Web Techniques Magazine.
This wasn’t my first book, but was my first book for librarians. Published by Neal-Schuman in June 2001, there is still a copy available on Amazon. It’s yours for the low price of $63.65
According to Nicole, it was sent off to the printer a few days ago and will be available at Internet Librarian.
On 25 September 2006 I learned that I’d have an article printed in the very first issue of the Journal of Web Librarianship.
