Dancing on Fly Ash the Book is Now an Amazon Kindle Edition

For those of you who didn't know, I co-wrote a blog called Dancing on Fly Ash for two years with Matt Bell, where we each wrote a story in one hundred words or less. After the first year we chose what we felt were the best microfictions we'd written (some were not so great, as DoFA was mostly a fun exercise in discipline) and published the collection as a paperback. Tod Goldberg wrote a good review of the book for Las Vegas City Life.

While the paperback is no longer available, a free PDF download of the book is available at Matt's website, where almost the entire archive of over 280 stories can also be found. And, now, finally, the book is available as an Amazon Kindle Edition.

Excellent news, Josh. DoFA was an awesome blog.

Thanks, Julie. I think the Kindle is the perfect format for this book. Hopefully people with Kindles will agree.

thank you, prathna. i wish i could spend $400 recklessly, too.

it will be a long time before i get a kindle unless the price drops. i will probably never own an iPhone, either. i already know my life is going to feel incomplete without all of the latest consumer electronics. this causes me to hate in a broadly sweeping and general way. half of me will repent while the other half will remain bitterly hateful toward no particular object but rather a vague and complex situation.

that is ok. my brother bought an iphone. he showed it to me. i tried to touch it and he pulled it away from me.

Josh Maday said...

yes, i know what you mean. over the holidays a relative kept getting his iphone out and playing with it, rubbing his thumb and fingers on its face and speaking softly to it. i felt obscene witnessing that, like i'd walked in on a private act. i am going to write a post about this now. iphone porn.

It's an ugly thing to witness, you two.

iphone envy is right. same thing happens when i see people driving much larger and more expensive cars than I do. A few weeks ago I saw a Jaguar in a parking lot and I almost pulled snot down from my sinuses and sent a thick ball of mucus on the quarter panel or the windshield. But then I got scared that someone with that kind of money might actually take the sample and have the DNA tested to find out who spit on their car. So I didn't do it. I felt like the bigger person for not spitting on that Jaguar. And then I soon felt small again. Even smaller than I had before.

i am not envious

Josh Maday said...

i am incomplete when i don't own everything everyone else owns.

If that Jag you saw was beige and it was in the tri-city area (we both know there aren't many luxury cars around there), it probably belonged to my evil Aunt "Cruella". People who flaunt their wealth aren't always as rich as they'd like us to think, and almost always have no personality. They need pretty things to prove (to us and themselves) that they're not a waste of oxygen.
