Cover of #! (pronounced 'Shebang')

My new book of programs/poems, #! (pronounced “Shebang”), has just been published by Counterpath.

Read all about it on the press’s page for #!.

The book consists of poetic programs and their outputs. The programs in the book are all free software, and in case you don’t want to type them in, the longer ones are all available in my “code” directory.

I hope you’ll get a copy at your local independent bookseller.

  1. Congratulations, Nick! I’m looking forwards to seeing it :) And the idea of typing in programs makes me feel kind of nostalgic – I remember acquiring piles of computer magazines from my work experience week in a bookshop when I was 14 and typing in all the code. It was fun. Although I still might download some of yours…
