from the introduction:
"This book has had a long road to its making. First published as ‘The Dæmon Guide’ in 2018. Just 20 copies to a few folks I trusted. Then it grew into ‘Pocket Guide to Wandering’. A green retro looking book made entirely in Word. And then it went on “tour”. I packed a box of 50 green books and hitchhiked from Bangkok to Penang, Malaysia. Passing out copies along the way and getting stopped in customs. I met old friends I hadn’t seen in years. I made new ones. In the final hours of Georgetown litfest, Nhã Thuyên did me a great kindness and invited me to drink with the poets—goofing off late into the night reading each other’s fortunes until we stumbled into the streets for food and parted ways. I had no more copies to give. Two years later the book turned yellow and learned some design and found the archive of the public domain. It moved home and found some place new. "
