The Mad Scientist's Songbook

The Mad Scientist's Songbook, the first (and perhaps last) published collection of my filk songs, is now available. The collection includes subversive, silly, and science-fictional songs which I've written, including printed music for those with original tunes and a couple of others (with permission or in the public domain).

It includes the following songs:

Science Fiction and Fantasy

Songs of Freedom

Berton Braley Settings

Songs for Fun

* printed music included

Warning: I am not responsible for guitarists damaging their fingers trying to play the chords in the book. (They're easy on a keyboard!)

MASSFILC A M.A.S.S. F.I.L.C. publication

Please order the book from filk dealers or from M.A.S.S. F.I.L.C., not from me. The book is available from Random Factors and Tales from the White Hart.
