It's been over a month since I left Taiwan and I'm happy to say that all of the MAKING HISTORY perks set to be delivered by July have been sent out. Well, except for one...
On July 24th I sent out "A piece of history": a replica 11"X17" poster of the TAIWAN'S 400 YEAR HISTORY book cover signed by Su Beng.
On July 28th I sent out the "T-shirt of courage."
Of course I got a "T-shirt of courage" for myself.
On the 28th I also sent out "Songs by Su Beng": Audio CD: TAIWAN WANTS INDEPENDENCE-songs by Su Beng Track 1: Taiwan Nationalism Track 2: Taiwan Independence Army Marching Song.
The one thing that I wasn't able to deliver was the "ebook TAIWAN'S HISTORY": Revised edited EBOOK version of The English version of TAIWAN'S 400 YEAR HISTORY, which was first published in 1986 but is no longer available in print.
The English print version was originally translated from the Chinese language version, and as it turns out, the Chinese language version of THE TAIWANESE PEOPLE'S 400 YEARS OF HISTORY (台彎人四百年史) is currently undergoing revisions and is set to be republished in Taiwan in August. The reason for that is because there's been a huge demand for the book. There's been an increased interest in Su Beng and his writings- in large part because of his support of the students and activists who occupied the Legislative Yuan in earlier this year.
I think it would be best if revisions for the English ebook version were based closely on the newly revised Chinese language version. Also, since the English version, TAIWAN'S 400 YEAR HISTORY was originally published in 1986, there are sections that need to be rewritten or updated such as the chronology of events in Chapter X, which ends in 1986. So I've decided to set a new delivery date for this perk of February 2015. I sincerely apologize to those who were expecting to have the this perk delivered by now, but I do believe that you will be getting a much better updated and revised version of the English version of TAIWAN'S 400 YEAR HISTORY in ebook format.
While I was in Taiwan, I met many key people and gathered tons of material for the documentary and biography. Thank you for making the completion of my work possible. I am so grateful for everyone's continued support!
