wow i didn't know he was writing a book. that's awesome. and after reading the synopsis i'm even more stoked..

"Isolated by a disfiguring injury since the age of seventeen, Sean Phillips crafts imaginary worlds for strangers to play in. From his small apartment in southern California, he orchestrates fantastic adventures where possibilities, both dark and bright, open in the boundaries between the real and the imagined. As the creator of “Trace Italian”—a text-based, role-playing game played through the mail—Sean guides players from around the world through his intricately imagined terrain, which they navigate and explore, turn by turn, seeking sanctuary in a ravaged, savage future America.

Lance and Carrie are high school students from Florida, and are explorers of the Trace. But when they take their play into the real world, disaster strikes, and Sean is called on to account for it. In the process, he is pulled back through time, tracing back toward the moment of his own self-inflicted departure from the world in which most people live.Mountain Goats’ John Darnielle"
Though lovers be lost love shall not.

It's been moved up to the September 16th.  You guys should keep in touch with JD's tumbler.  Not only is it TMG and JD related, it is also insightful, moving, interesting and motherfuck hilarious.  I love JD so much more after reading his tumblr for the past year-

i completely agree, i love the day to day reminder of what an incredible human he is via his tumblr. i wish i had more time for tumblr haha. i didn't see where it said the release date was moved up but the pre-order i did on powells says they're shipping the 16th and his book tour starts around that day, so it makes sense. SO STOKED CANT WAIT

Every time they say "enjoy a tiny desk concert" on NPR I am really amused and repeat "tiny desk concert" out loud and smile. But yeah, they are also usually really good.
