OYB Anthology! ---Indy action galore
July 16, 2005
[$15. $5 off $20 retail!] I've been pushing the OYB Anthology on the back-issues page but really it deserves its own attention. Darn, this thing is full of amazing stories and artwork. It's the first 8 issues of OYB bound together as a nice perfectbound paperback 8.5x11" book. 200+ pages. I'll see if I can find an index to the stories in it. Uh, there are a lot. And some are real doozies. Heck, the 2-part story of the life and times of me and my pals living on an old wood sailboat in L.A. Harbor are worth the price of admission alone. The epic upnorth Yurt Tales---of sledding and deer-hunting, again, doozies. What about whittling a longbow? Very nice. Rail-cycling over huge trestles out east? Got it. Offroading and camping in a sedan? Check. Some really good artists pitched in on these as well, not to forget a very sharp co-editor for a couple issues. This is all full-on OYB content like you can't find anywhere else. Heck, there are dozens of other writers included---back in the day it wasn't all just me babbling away.
