Vsauce Says Hyperobject

 I don't quite know who YouTubers are. Of course I do, but not like my kids do. So I'm not sure quite why they got so excited about this chap talking about my book about four minutes in. But he does appear to have about 17 million followers and this got about 2 million hits when I saw it just now. 

The word hyperobject is great I think, because it makes you feel like a cool scientist. And we need more people feeling that way.

All Art Is Ecological Final Cover

 Look look! This is the first book that acknowledges my non-binary-ness! 



My Grandfather, My Role Model

 This is a great website about one of the most important political actions in the UK in the early twentieth century, the Cable Street riots. My grandfather, a communist who is my role model, was part of it and talked Marxism on a soap box! They used marbles to deter police horses and they won! I mean the Jews, Communists and anarchists. 

This is the real reason Britain didn't become fascist. And this is the level you have to go to--I use the present tense for a reason. 

My children are now proudly learning about their ancestor... 



George (my grandfather) refused to go on the boat with the other officers to the front (North Africa in his case). He went with the privates. 

The officers' ship was sunk by a U-Boat. 

You are reading this because my grandfather was a communist.

So, To Recap

 These are the books I'm publishing this year: 

Hyposubjects

All Art Is Ecological

Spacecraft 

...in that order. 

But wait, there's more. I don't know how fast they can do this, but it's quite a short book: 

The Stuff of Life

I'm writing it now. Will be done by June at the latest. 

It's everything you always wanted to know about Tim Morton, without having thought to ask London Underground stations and concealer sticks.
