Initially I wanted this to be a neatly laid out pdf or even physical book, but quickly realized that by the time I would get around finishing it, the Hy would be really different language. So I decided to publish what little I had gotten written and make it a living book. Sources are available at GitHub and I plan to keep on chipping this on my spare time.
