About 50 Watts Books publications: While running the bookstore over the last year, I've been working on four books at the top of my list of dream projects. These books have fascinated (and confused) me for years -- longtime followers of the blog might recognize some -- and I'm excited to put them into the world. To follow their progress and be alerted when preorders begin, sign up for the 50 Watts Books email list.
