Writing this thing seems almost preposterous to me. I have very little to comment about THE SQUIRREL MACHINE book. In my mind, it is complete and waiting to be read. Nonetheless, I will attempt to extract something from the mists to tantalize...
My ally and sometimes co-conspirator, E. Stephen Frederick (the curator of the famed Empire S.N.A.F.U. Restoration Project) was kind enough to provide (unsolicited) a foreword for the book. In it, he suggests that the book is a direct memoir of our own formative years growing up in rural Massachusetts. Don't ask me if it's true. I wasn't really paying attention at the time. However, from the archives of the S.N.A.F.U. Research Purgatory, evidence of the first ancestor to the SQUIRREL MACHINE has been unearthed :

I am uncertain of the date of its creation. I had first seen it possibly when I was 16 or 17. No doubt, this enigmatic device left an indentation on my psyche. the results of which will be in bookstores this October. Please coerce you local bookseller and gimcrack dealer to stock multiple copies!
