Harry S. Robins aka Hal Robins aka Dr. Hal, namesake of the weekly “Ask Dr. Hal” series at The Odeon Bar and Master of Church Secrets” for The Church of SubGenius, has written and illustrated a wonderful new book: “The Meaning of Lost and Mismatched Socks”.
From Frog, Ltd., the publisher:
Meaning of Lost and Mismatched Socks is a humorous examination of why one of a pair of socks disappears during the process of laundering them, from a quasi-scientific perspective, with many theoretical, historical and contemporary asides.
Here’s what Hal says about the book:
I, Dr. Hal, have written a book. It’s called “The Meaning of Lost and Mismatched Socks”, and its publisher is Frog, Ltd. (North Atlantic Books). This tome was written, indexed, and packed with illustrations by Yours Truly under the nom de plume of Dr. Perditus Pedale, M.D., Ph.D., but don’t be fooled: it’s really me. (“Cyberpunk” author) John Shirley wrote it up with a good review last year, bless him.
