Huzzah! Chris Mikul's Eccentropedia has just been published [by Headpress] with dozens of terrific illustrations by Glenn Smith.
Containing 266 entries, including William Blake, Captain Beefheart, William S. Burroughs, Joseph Cindric (Sydney's 'Trolleyman'), the Collyer Brothers (Uber Hoarders), Antoni Gaudi, Howard Hughes, Oofty Goofty (the human punching bag (!)) and, uh ... 255 others! You've probably stopped reading by now to zoom off and order your copy, nevertheless I'll continue by assuring you that you will absolutely treasure this book, savouring every page, and not only that, you will return to it again and again, then hand it down to your children and grandchildren. Why not splash out and order the hardback? Otherwise, wait a short while for the paperback's release on 26 June.
