Came across a post on a Tumblr blog, apartness, that fronted a literary classic. The book in question is called 'Never Kill A Client" by Brett Halliday, and first published by Dell in 1963. You can also see a Flickr set containing this image.
It wasn't the book that caught my eye but the awesome title. A title just perfect for some idiotic tinkering by this creative individual.
I doubt I am the only one with a cupboard full of dead clients–I think one or two might still be alive– and not to mention that the floorboards are getting a little full right now. I am happy to say that once I saw this book I started to see the error of my ways and I come before you to not preach but to pass on some valuable advice.
No matter how frustrated you might get with a non-paying client or a client who has stolen one of your valuable ideas; killing them I now believe is a tad over-the-top. I have started to explore less permanent solutions to my client issues, and am happy to say I have gone 1 month without killing a single client.
