I too thought the pages of reviews would look like it does on the website. To give credit where credit is due. Also so the reader, who is now interested in our little website, can come on and find the author who wrote their favorite review of the whole book.

But they can do that anyway. I.e., go to the movie page, find the review, and see who wrote it.

I think it's fine the way it is, a collection of clever/funny reviews. The author's name or pseudonym is not going to be of interest to a first-time reader.

The cover may be like that, but it's just a design put together to plug the book to bookshops so I'm not bothered about the reviews or their format on this. Frankly, I'm more surprised nobody here picked up on the curious credit given both myself and Mike at the bottom of the page!


Nobody?



I assume you mean that FWFR.com has two founders one whom is benj and the other who we know as Yukon even though Yukon's first review was 19 Oct 2005 years after teh site was founded.

I figure the designers just made it up for the cover....

As much as I wish as was a founder of FWFR.com, I'm not. The designers thought we were. We told the editor it's wrong.

I think the plan is to call us the "producers of www.fwfr.com" which is more accurate (I have written a lot of reviews) and fits well with the movie theme.

Nope. I didn't get an email saying one of your reviews would be in the book.

I saw it too, benj, but I just kept quiet b/c I figured if it bothered you, you'd simply change it. I doubt Yukie really wants to be known as a "founder" of fwfr, but if that's the easiest way to express it, so be it. This is *your* decision, not ours.

P.S. Just in case anyone was actually wondering, design FREQUENTLY affects the words on a book's cover.

So what is everyone appearing in The Book having for their four word message in the acknowledgements section? I'm trying to decide what kind of thing to have for mine.

Please don't think about it for too long -- the manuscript is due on Feb. 28.
Benj and I need you info by a the bio page a few days before hand at the latest. Please send it to us ASAP!

And on a side note -- a lot of people are using their four words to say "Thank you Benj." It's nice but it's getting a little repetitive. Thank Benj in a personal e-mail and feel free to come up with something more creative.
