Every story I write uses maybe 5 percent of my literal and figurative notebook.

But a good chunk of that remaining 95 percent is material that I love, and that I think you would love, too.

That makes me sad. I learn and see so many cool and random and just plain fun things about people, places, and things you care about.

I don’t want to be sad.

And I don’t want you to be deprived of cool things you could know. 

And one day a voice from the heavens spoke to me, saying, “Brandon, use the Internet.” 

And I said, “OK, Sky Voice, that sounds fun.”

Hence, the Extras. 

Some will be deleted scenes cut straight from rough drafts that are probably unedited and overwrought and/or afflicted with typopox. 

Others will just be like copying-and-pasting from the aforementioned notebook.

Like most everything else around here, consider all of it very much a rough draft—and me, too, while you’re at it.
