From Brother John's myspace:
Long-time moe. fans may remember the column, which appeared in the old moe.Newsletter way back when.
That column was based upon a series of letters to Rob, your friendly bass player for moe., from his brother John, the humble, yet bungling innkeeper of the moe.Republic Hotel.

We're pleased to announce that brother John has finally sat his ass down and turned all those letters he wrote to Rob into a full-length book, Tales from the moe.Republic.

Now you, dear readers, can visit the mystical oasis of the moe.Republic Hotel anywhere, anytime, and read all about the adventures and misadventures of brother John when you purchase a copy of Tales from the moe.Republic, which one critic has deemed "...indispensable! A must read for every throne room in the moe.nation...!"

About the Book
Tales from the moe.Republic offers you a chance to journey into the heart of the legendary Lost Kingdom of Moose Harbor. Find out how brother John hooked Rob by the gills and reeled him in to back the hotel. Then catch up with the many characters who frequent the hotel and populate the town. Like brother Kevin and his beloved dog Sparky who disappeared into the cosmos once upon a Saint Patrick's Day. Meet Porter Gibson Digit and discover how this one man changed the course of history the day he invented the finger. There's Casey McNugent, the petting zoo farmer who sells elephant semen for profit. Throw in a haunted mansion, the misadventures of Timmy Tucker, the craziest Fourth of July party ever, a cursed pirate treasure, and you'll come to know why Rob and Al and Chuck and Vinnie and Jim have spent the better part of last fifteen years on the road and avoiding this place like the plague.
