QRD Ebooks

All the way back in 1994 I started QRD.  Now it's older than I was when I started it.  In an attempt to move into the twenty-first century we're offering ebooks collecting some of our interviews.  The PDFs are formatted to fit well on tablets & most e-readers & I find them much more pleasant than the epub format Amazon uses.
