This tiny, wearable book features a Dragon and a New Moon on the cover.

But there's more. Open the book and there's a story Inside for you to read. The story is called Zero. It's about a the most powerful number that never was. I first performed it at Brother Blue's Storytelling Coffeehouse in Harvard Square, home to the nicest audience that ever was.

TECHNICAL STUFF:
The book is made of steel with a gold/ox finish. The other metal elements are brass with a gold/ox finish. The stone set into the Dragon is a 5mm amethyst frosted glass cabochon. The stone set into the New Moon is a 5mm glass fire opal. The frame is lined with painted paper. The story inside is printed on linen paper. All metal parts are drilled through and riveted together.

EXCERPT FROM ZERO:
The problem with junk I have found is that in it's larval form it does not look like junk. It looks like really cool stuff you have to have. Stuff you will someday need. But that is just a trick that plastic has developed to get you to bring it into your apartment. Once inside it quickly matures into it's adult, dust gathering state; your junk.
We Americans move through our lives like comets, trailing long tails of clutter behind us. When two people decide to try moving in together before marriage it's really to find out if all their stuff is compatible.
But why all this junk? How did it all start? And who started it?
Well, I'll tell you. It all started with zero, the most beautiful number that never was.
And the most powerful because there was no number that could go up against zero and win, especially in a multiplication contest. And like all things magnificent it could not be possessed. Because who could possess zero?
