Update 19 april 2010: Some news from The Zero Emission Book Project.

We’re Getting On first editions are 100% green, recycled, and super-post-consumer. The interiors are 100% recycled paper. But what’s crazy is that the covers are made of seed paper that, upon burial, germinate and grow into spruce trees. That’s right! This book offsets its own carbon footprint 10X over.

The Zero Emission Book Tour will begin on July 2nd, 2010. James will pass through more than 20 West Coast cities in 8 weeks between Los Angeles and Vancouver — on a BIKE! Provided you live in California, Oregon, Washington, or southwestern Canada, you’ll just have to stop by and see him read.

27 februari 2010: The Zero Emission Book Project will launch RIDE WITH JAMES in May 2010. This will give fans the opportunity to register online and ride along with James—whether for a leg or the entire tour. Space will be limited.

About James Kaelan’s debut novel, We’re Getting On, excerpted from the HTMLGIANT interview:

were-getting-on-paperback

“For me, and for this project specifically, the tour is inextricably linked to the book. The title novella in We’re Getting On concerns a group of kids from California who set off into the desert with the intention of abandoning technology completely.

They aren’t concerned with carbon footprints so much as they are with wholesale digital purging. As someone who spends 12 hours a day on a computer, and the remaining waking hours on a phone,

I’ve thought a lot about being perpetually “connected.” Electronic communication is not so much a drug as it is a modern food-source, as indispensable to first-world humans as vegetables. And yet we’re capable of living without any of our technological amenities; we did so for 100,000 years.

It may not be professionally advisable to renounce computers and phones and cars and lights, but I want to try doing so — for about a month. During the touring of the book, though I’ll certainly go inside buildings where the lights have been turned on, I won’t personally turn on a light, use a computer, watch television, get in a car, take a hot shower, or talk to anyone whom my voice doesn’t reach without amplification.

The tour, like the book, could be seen as an experiment in deprivation. I’m not, like Colin Beaven did for his ‘No Impact Man’ project, trying to show the viability of a 100% sustainable lifestyle. I’m just primitivizing.”
