Heroic Real Estate Otter of the 21st Century


Heroic Real Estate Otter of the 21st Century is the latest collective novel from Brendan Howell's exquisite_code project. The book was written by seven writers at Inspace on the 2nd November 2012. The process delegated by a brutalist-brut software edit machine, known as The Maggot.
