Here are two recently published, ubercool-looking books by authors new to me:

excerpt, from Relata & Anti-relata: 4. Execution Errors:

Write until breakpoint.
Then execute trace.
There is a syntax error in line 2. This error can be corrected.
There is a logical error in line 3. This error
when an unintended output is produced
as for example the grid coordinates lock in
on the wrong house.

and a bug is dead
in the bug.

Write words
and this other stuff happens.
An exit status of zero indicates success;
any other exit status indicates failure. Failure
does not necessarily indicate that the process
failed altogether to accomplish its task.
