Appy polly logies for the multiple messages on multiple sites, but I’ve been working hard on the book-length anthology of the best of frontwheeldrive.com. Entitled Follow for Now: Interviews with Friends and Heroes, the book is now available for pre-order from followfornow.com. Copies will be available in the next few weeks.

|“Roy Christopher has one of those distinctive voices that pops up every once in a while, an intelligent voice that hasn’t been domesticated by the academic machine, an engaging voice that hasn’t been prostituted by the infotainment complex. He’s been tracking down the situations, people, and ideas that he thinks matter. I’m glad to see him get this all down in a book, and I’m not alone.”
— Peter Lunenfeld, author of User: InfoTechnoDemo
Published through my own Well-Red Bear imprint, Follow for Now is an eclectic, independently-minded snapshot of the intellectual landscape at the beginning of the twenty-first century.
