eKentbook Lite

eKentbook Lite, the first edition of Kentbook (with full editions arriving February 2), includes all issues of Kent since 1999 except the two Kent Lost Issues, along with the first public appearance of the Kent Staff Handbook.

This post is backdated a few days. *Warning: The following will be boring but may interest some re: Internet authenticity in terms of why that is the case.* I initially published the PDF on December 31, 2018, and I was having technical difficulties that made me feel like something was going to go wrong, so I published the eKentbook Lite actually slightly ahead of when this page indicates. However, I realized that by posting it as a page and making it a static page, people were having trouble accessing individual issues. So I republished as a post, but I also wanted the post to indicate the initial publication time. The objective publication time was 11:59pm Eastern Daylight Time on New Year’s Eve. The book was initially published at approximately 11:00pm EDT. However, since I already wanted to backdate to the 31st to indicate initial publication date, I thought I’d also switch the publication time to the mythical ideal publication time of 11:59pm – which does truly reflect my initial desire to publish at a time when everyone was distracted with something else.

Narcissism Issue (Mar. 2018 #2)

The Kentbook, self-publisher Kent Roberts’ first solo book, with all issues since 1999 and all-new material, arrives here on 12/31/2018 at 11:59pm.

Mar 2018 #2 – The Narcissism Issue

This issue is the last Kent HQ – Longfellow issue (transitioning to Kent HQ – Whittier), as indicated by the article “First pangs of nostalgia arrive at Kent HQ.” The Kent HQ Flex Seating program was also introduced at Kent HQ in this issue – a program that will continue at the new location. A new moniker for a Russian agent is revealed in the 9th Resistance Corner, which is the avant-Kente “Dear Stormy’s Stallion.” Coverage of the water bottle I received from a homeless man appears in this issue – a story that was initially going to appear in the Sustainability Issue, as erroneously indicated elsewhere.
