Cleverly Obtuse Title Utilizing Pun Goes Here

Nathan Sellyn’s debut fiction collection Indigenous Beasts comes out next month. I was flipping through the Raincoast Spring 2006 catalogue today and his book caught my eye. The cover looks sharp, and my bet is that the fiction inside is none-too-shabby.

However, I cannot help but notice that the bottom left corner of the cover image printed in the catalogue contains the following text:

“This is an amazing quote saying Nate is the Next Big Thing.”

(Full PDF here.)

I will buy five copies of his book if the final, printed book cover actually says that.
