Richard Grayson Self-Publishes ‘The Hipster HUCKLEBERRY FINN’

Poking fun at the upcoming edition of The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn & Tom Sawyer republished with two racial slurs removed, author Richard Grayson has self-published The Hipster HUCKLEBERRY FINN.

Here’s more about the Lulu book: “A classroom-friendly version of Mark Twain’s classic novel, with every occurrence of the N-word replaced by the word ‘hipster.’ Thanks to editor Richard Grayson, the adventures of Huckleberry Finn are now neither offensive nor uncool.”

You can download a copy of the new book for free or you can buy a $18.99 print copy from Lulu. The cleaned-up version of the classic books has already generated plenty of controversy–what do you think about this self-published response?
