    Is it from the movie “full metal jacket”? He was referring to a gun.

    Yes! You win! We just gave away a stack on Facebook, and we’ll send one to you, too. I think we already have your address. : )

    This is a great post. I must say, if a publisher sent me a T-shirt promoting a book I believe in—oh, say, John Stephens’s new children’s fantasy The Emerald Atlas, for example—I would wear it with pride, and customers would surely ask about it. I think people have been too quick to discount “old-fashioned” promotional techniques.
