Hi Eiya,

Thank you for your question. Currently you can pre-order The Ocean Container (for a $25USD donation to the publisher's crowd-funding campaign, until Friday, May 12) here:

I believe publication will be in mid June, and other purchase options will be available then, as well. I hope you'll get a copy. Would like to hear what you think.

Best regards,

Dear Friends,

I now have copies of The Ocean Container, and I'll be bringing them with me to Sointula, where I'll be reading at the public library August 1st. In mid-August, after I'm back from a longish camping trip, I'll be getting copies to those of you who are owed one, and will have more announcements to share then. Stay tuned!

-- Patrik
