I want this, but I don't want to buy a Kindle edition

The Dawkins character is a hoot: foul-mouthed, pompous, so certain of his beliefs that he will dissect a puppy in front of primary schoolchildren if it will disabuse them of the creation "myth" invented by the "dark forces of religion".

   (From the review of When the Professor Got Stuck in the Snow in The Guardian, Wednesday 9 April 2014)

Apparently Dan Rhodes couldn't get his publishers interested ("Rhodes apparently decided to take the gamble on the grounds that he has so little money that to sue him would be fruitless, despite being chosen as one of Granta's best young British novelists in 2003."), so he went the self-publishing route. Pity there isn't an alternate e-book edition.
