Whatever comes out I will give it a shot. Too much talent and passion to not like.

Announcement today completely negated any excitement I had for Bad Idea. Basically the only way I’ll be reading these books is via illegal torrent. 20 retailers, no trades, no digital. I have a feeling many on here will feel the same way.

It's almost like Bad Idea is aware that illegal torrents exist and they've already thought of that and they have plan... and no matter what the plan is... it will be a bad idea.
