Some Insider Info for Folks Who Bought My Book

As I was out walking during my lunch break today, the homeless lady to whom I'd given a copy of my book last week spotted me, came running across the street through traffic, trotted up to me and said, "I'm almost finished with your book! Can you sign it for me?" Then she added "By the way, his name is Chuckie, and he DOES live at the storage place. Oh, and I know what kanebanol is."

Just thought some people might like to know.

Yeah,some people might know what that means, and I´m not one of them. Lol.

It must be cause I haven´t read your book yet, but I´m about to buy it. (i´m saving for to buy it in august, because of the dollar exchange).

What country are you in, Shadow?

I'm so relieved about the dog. I'm pretty sure I was crying when I read your description of it. At least he happens to live in proximity to someone who is happy to supply him with Mexican food:)

And congrats on being a celebrity!

I'm guessing cannabinol.

I live in Brazil, there´s this other blogger who pointed me to your website.

I´m really going to buy your book since I plan to get my hands on about anything that is being written on this subject. Benatar´s book just came recently to my house, and after yours will be Ligotti´s.

The eco-based antinatalism site VHEMT has a lot of good responses to pro-natalist arguments. Rather than list them all, I'll just provide the link

While I (like a lot of people) do not subscribe to a pure environmental reasoning to antinatalism, I believe that if they reach the same conclusion (i.e, antinatalism), it´s all good.

Plus, it is really a good list provided by Vhemt there.

I certainly agree, Shadow. As Jim said, regardless of motivational bases, we're all working for the same goal. Still, I could conceivably support ecological antinatalism if they incorporated into their platform doing away with all higher animal life (at minimum, apex predators along with humans). After all, animals can suffer too.
