A google whack is a search result that returns only one result on google. A zero whack is when it returns zero. All titles and plots of above books were zero whacks on 12/15/10.
Each book is custom crafted from phrases that return no results in search engines.

Every Zero Whack book is keyboard-crafted from randomly-generated lists and custom-manufactured sets of writing or photos.
The plots are ideas for books I will never write but wish I would.
The authors names come from people's surname and forename lists on Wikipedia (and I added a few friends).
All the publishing houses are named with words found in spam, then assigned a location in a real Quebec town.
The barcodes are dynamically generated from a font and would fool no self-respecting machine.
The bookcovers photos were shot in and in-between Montreal and Berlin. 2010
The blurbs are inspired by excess catharsis everywhere.
