I'd love to support this, but I'm mainly interested in a physical copy - and $30 shipping to Denmark + getting busted in customs and paying $30 extra for that isn't too enticing a prospect, even if the journal is more than enticing. Will the journal be available via the usual online dealers once published? This is not to put the effort down, just being practical. I'll probably support this anyway.

Mads,

It definitely will be available for purchase in your neck of the woods once the campaign is done. Thank you!

Also, we're 36% funded last I checked, in a little less than 4 hours! Thanks to all contributors, and, if you haven't donated yet... Please do.

Many thanks.

Pledged! I can hardly wait to see this monumental project finally come to fruition.

Your diligence & hard work are certainly appreciated, Jon, Matt, & company. May this be a long-lived and prosperous venture. We puppets dance with glee!

Re: Vastarien Kickstarter Campaign is Live

I can't find the shipping costs, but how much is shipping to England for a physical copycopy of the book?

International shipping is set at $30 USD via KS, but you can always wait for the journal to be available through Amazon UK (April at the latest, when all other copies will be sent out).

Thanks, Lucian.

Re: Vastarien Kickstarter Campaign is Live

Pledged! I went for the Chymist package, which seemed like a pretty sweet deal to me. I noticed 10 extra were added to the original number. Iíd suggest international supporters pick this reward level as the shipping remains $30, but you get a yearís print and electronic subscription, PLUS an Aeron Alfrey print. You canít really go wrong. So stoked about this!

Re: Vastarien Kickstarter Campaign is Live

There are now additional countries added to the shipping costs dropdown. My mistake. Thank you all! We are almost halfway there in all of eight hours. Stunning!

Re: Vastarien Kickstarter Campaign is Live

Campaign Update:


Only $755 left to raise! We'd love to see this happen in the next couple hours so we can make our campaign goal within the first day.


Humble thanks to our initial 52 backers. We won't let you down.


Please help us push this over the finish line and beyond. We're going to publish some stretch goals shortly.

Only $120 shy of the goal.
