purely hypothetical

This is a purely hypothetical poll. It's based largely on the vagueries of a freelance life, which is to say, an empty bank account, and springs from having gone for a walk this morning thinking about Ursula's Taxman print and trying to imagine if there was a sort of authorial equivilant to what she did there (short version: she had a big tax bill, did a limited edition painting, her awesome fans came through and helped her pay off the bill). I think that sort of thing is easier if you're an artist, particularly one of Ursula's speed. It's a little harder to whip out a book and say, "Limited edition! Order it if you want it!" I mean, I write fast, but not that fast. :)

(Also, speaking of Ursula, her first book, NURK: THE STRANGE, SURPRISING ADVENTURES OF A (SOMEWHAT) BRAVE SHREW has hit the shelves, and you should all go buy it, too. :))
