Published in honor of LiveJournal’s tenth anniversary, the book is being distributed by, the leader in POD, and is available in both softcover and hardcover editions in the Blurb Bookstore.

Long known as a premier destination for creative writers, artists, and eclectic thinkers, the anthology showcases a cross-section of extraordinary talent, including:

  • Excerpts from OnNoTheDidn't (a/k/a ohnotheydidnt), the largest community on LiveJournal, covering celebrity gossip, entertainment news, and pop culture.
  • A look at post-Katrina New Orleans from the journal of Poppy Z. Brite
  • Compelling narratives, including a gripping reverie on a blind date
  • Photography from around the world, ranging from old-fashioned Polaroids to underwater photography

We thank you for sharing your passion and look forward to the next ten years of friendship, drama, and fun!
