Children’s author, essayist and hero of literature Daniel Pinkwater has revived his classic backlist as a line of DRM-free ebooks! Each one is only $3, and there are some astoundingly good titles in there.

Alan Mendelsohn, The Boy From Marswas my first Pinkwater, and it literally changed my life. It’s your basic nerd-discovers-he-has-special-powers book, except it’s not: it’s got saucer cults, green death chili, mystic bikers, and a sweet and inclusive message about following your weird without looking down on others. It literally changed my life.

I picked up Alan Mendelsohn as a kid during my check-out-everything-in-the-children’s-section-with-a-scifi-sticker phase. I did not know what to do with the book. It excited and confused me in so many ways. In case it’s not obvious from that statement, I loved it, and I’m so glad there’s another chance to buy it.

A little behind the scenes look of the early stages of Green Lantern the Animated Series.

My eternal gratitude to everyone who helped prove the doubters wrong.

Pretty fascinating look behind the scenes.
