PLA: The Book

If you’re sick of reading all this content on for free then have I got a deal for you! Very soon you’ll be able to purchase your very own Phone Losers of America book that contains a tiny fraction of the amount of content you can find on this site and you’ll get to pay for it!

The PLA book has been finished for a while now and the finishing touches are going into it. Chapters are being proofread, pages formatted, covers designed and pictures added. If all goes well, the book should be available long before this year is over. The book will contain stories based on the original PLA issues, such as the Dino story, Fred Meyer, the Boulder News Frenzy, revenge and more. All of it has been rewritten for the book so you’ll only think you’re reading the same shit that you’ve been reading here for the past 16 years. There are also a few new items in the book that you hopefully haven’t heard of. For a somewhat complete chapter list, visit the PLA book page or to talk about the book project in the PLA Forums, click here.

Here’s the part where I need your help. At the beginning of each chapter, below the chapter title and before the chapter actually starts, there is a quote about the PLA. These quotes aren’t necessarily related to the content in the chapter, but they’re all about some aspect of what makes the PLA awesome or why a particular person loves the PLA. Like this one and this one. I have enough quotes for about 10 chapters, but I need about 10 more of them. Say something great or witty about the PLA and you just might make it into the book.

The first few quotes I used were from this thread on the PLA Forums, so reading that might give you an idea of what I’m looking for. You can post your quote there, or post it in the comments below. Or you can email them directly to me.

If there’s something you’d like to see in the book or you have any other ideas for it or maybe if you want to contribute some artwork or anything else, you can post your ideas here or email them to me and hopefully it won’t be too late. Keep an eye on this page, though, because the book will be here very soon. No really, I mean it this time!

    I discovered the PLA when I was 9 years old. I’ve been a sly little phreak ever since.

    why do people uses cell phones to send text messages are they too stupid to realize that they are holding a phone and can press 10 numbers and send, cutting it down to 11 buttons instead of 500?
