Alexander T. Newport Announces Print-on-Demand Availability of "The Vomit Factory (Life is Fake: Death is Good)" at

Worldwide – Summer-Autumn 2005 -- The churlish clown of Philobabble, Alexander T. Newport, announces publication of "The Vomit Factory (Life is Fake: Death is Good)" in conjunction with Lulu (, the world’s fastest-growing provider of print-on-demand books.

All philosophy books tend to be far too earnest, academic, and devoid of personality, humor, and pizzazz to ever appeal to anyone but old farts and boring eggheads. This is not the case with The Vomit Factory.

Mr. Newport wrote The Vomit Factory because he could not find its contents anywhere else. He came to Lulu because he wanted to be in control of the publishing process and found Lulu’s print-on-demand tools to be fast, easy and, most importantly, free.

"The Vomit Factory (Life is Fake: Death is Good)" is available for purchase at, in a marketplace filled with other unique, and sometimes, downright strange, items.

Mr. Newport states that, "Marketing the book was the hard part. Getting it published and printed through Lulu was a breeze."

“Lulu is the web’s version of an open-air independent marketplace,” said Henry Hutton, Director of Operations, Lulu. “We are a meeting place for curious readers and information seekers and authors such as Alexander Newport and his book, The Vomit Factory.”
