Wil Wheaton came up with just the right word to describe his new book, Sunken Treasure. The subtitle is Wil Wheaton's Hot Cocoa Box Sampler, and sampler is an excellent metaphor for what this small, sumptuous snack represents. This is a variety box loaded with the delicious, hand-crafted geeky confections Wil is so well known for, from sweet '80s nostalgia filled with video arcades and Star Wars toys, to affectionately snarky looks back upon his tenure on ST:TNG, and even a few family stories with gooey centers full of win.
Wow, that's ... awesome. Andrew and I thought we'd put together something cool and unique, but I never thought readers would like it this much. I think I did something right in the descriptions, too, because even though it's short — it's supposed to be short — people aren't complaining about that, which was a concern of mine. I wanted to make it very clear that this was a short collection, so people knew exactly what they were getting. So far, it appears that I've successfully done that, which makes me happy, because it was important to me.
If you picked up a copy of Sunken Treasure (thank you!) and you've written a review for your own blog, or you've written a review on its product page at Lulu (US Edition or World Edition), please let me know about it. I'd like to put all the reviews together in one place on my virtual bookshelf.
And now, a question from me to you: who wants a digital version? If enough people ask, I'll go ahead and make an eBook version available.
