The Bottomless Bottle of Beer: Ready to Order

The Bottomless Bottle of Beer is now ready to be imbibed! Click on the caption above and drink in Terrance Lindall's illustrations to my Milton-flavored Faustian (t)ale of one man's insatiable thirst for the perfect beer, a Bulgakovian brew (ha-ha) from a garden of earthly delights where Malt and Milton coupled can both justify God's ways to man!

Lindall is a well-known artist who has created illustrations for Creepy, Eerie, Vampirella, Heavy Metal, the Epic Comics imprint of Marvel Comics, Rod Serling's Twilight Zone Magazine, and John Milton's Paradise Lost, among other texts.

As for me, I'm a little-known writer who has happened to write a creepy tale worthy of Lindall's work:
[J]ust one sip of this, and your eyes that seem so clear, but are yet dim, shall perfectly be then opened and fully cleared, and you shall know all . . . things. Believe me, for I have tasted and now know. Or . . . take some, and freely taste for yourself.
Try only a little drink . . .

UPDATE: There's a glitch with the ordering, so this might be postponed for a few days while I work things out.

UPDATE 2: The glitch seems to be fixed.

UPDATE 3: For a better, more complete edition of the story, order the ebook version.

Yes! BBB it's a coincidence but surreal way of varied interpretation into magical form the world Paradise Lost. Maybe they thanks to Satan gave color to the world!

Yes! Indeed, laughing of loud! Better than a late well still flying high.

Even an early well flying high would prove alarming!
