Me Too!

Yep, I put a book on Amazon.com for the Kindle.

I had a few questions on those Kindle books on Amazon. I submitted one and now I have some answers.
Yes, they will accept most anything.
No, they make no pretense of editing or considering the blurb submitted by the author/publisher.

You can now type in "John Pilge" into the Amazon search engine and it will have something besides a misspelling of "John Pilger" the journalist from Australia.

My effort, "The Big Book of Anagrams," has over 166,000 anagrams with the words. It includes a brief, on the topic of cryptograms.

The project required 280,090 lines of HTML code. It took a few hours to write a program to do it for me and longer to edit the final result.

Should it become a run-away success, (that is, if it actually sells about 10 copies) I might celebrate by getting some chili-cheese fries at a local fast-food joint. (Maybe a drink too.)

My next efforts include:
"The Big Book of Words Alphabetically by Size and Also in Reverse Alphabetic Order"
(Title may be revised before publishing.)

"The Short List of 100-Digit Prime Numbers"
(Due out sometime before the next century.)

My plan for "1.6 Million Variations on a 9x9 Sudoku Grid"
have been abandoned. (Unless you add numbers to the grid, they all look alike.)

The effort has taken away time on my other work-in-progress
"10,000 Double Word Squares."
I want to assure the fans* of this work, it is nearing completion.
*Fans. Plural if I count myself.

Seriously? On the anagram book yes. Amazon does not allow the book to sell below $1.99. You can view a few pages for free.
