Oyster LightOver the past year or so I've been putting together a few longer than blog post pieces into something that just barely qualifies as book length. You've probably read some of what makes up the book on Olympia Time already, but in "Oyster Light" you can read them in the way that I intended, in their entirety. There are four major pieces in here covering baseball, murderous settlers, the early lawyering life of E.N. Steele and the capitol campus.
You can certainly pay for a printed or electronic version, but you can also download it for free.
The ebook version is available as a pay-what-you -want version at Smashwords. If you really want a suggestion what you should pay, $3 sounds about right. If you have trouble downloading a clean version, let me know and I'll hook you up over email.
The printed version is available at Lulu for $11.
An editable version is also online since I have a hard time saying this is a good or even final version of this book. Feel free to take a whack at editing a possible future version.
Olympia Time zine seriesA few years back I took a crack at some other printed projects, which turned in a short zine series.
Olympia Time #1: Welcome to Olympia
Download. This one basically covers most aspects of my emotional issues surrounding people saying Olympia when they mean state government or legislature.
Olympia Time #2: Tumwater Roads (or how I-5 really didn't kill Tumwater's downtown)
Download. The story goes around here that before I-5 bullied its way through Thurston County, Tumwater had a cute and robust downtown. Not so true really.
