Re: Vastarien Kickstarter Campaign is Live

Update:

We are now at $6,328 pledged of the $4,913 goal.

Now that Vastarien is fully funded (thanks to all of you), we'll be talking a lot about how we're going to be spending the money we receive for the next 28 days over our goal amount.

Our first priority: increase payments to our authors and artists, up to pro-rates.

Second priority: secure funding base for creating issues of Vastarien post-2018.

And we have a few other plans in the event the grand total exceeds our wildest expectations.

We'll be sharing a breakdown of the budgeting particulars/additional goals shortly (as soon as we recover from collapsing with relief and jubilation).

Again, thanks to all of you. The speed and generosity of your donations was staggering.

Re: Vastarien Kickstarter Campaign is Live

Congratulations, guys!

Your fall should be like the fall of mountains. But I was before mountains. I was in the beginning, and shall be forever. The first and the last. The world come full circle. I am not the wheel. I am the hand that turns the wheel. I am Time, the Destroyer. I was the wind and the stars before this. Before planets. Before heaven and hell. And when all is done, I will be wind again, to blow this world as dust back into endless space. To me the coming and going of Man is as nothing.

Re: Vastarien Kickstarter Campaign is Live

Update: We are now at $7,832 pledged of the $4,913 goal.

To all who have already pledged, our eternal thanks!

In order to achieve pro-rates for our authors and cover artists for 2018 (issues 1-3), we need to raise $11,436 more dollars, putting our stretch goal at $16,349. Even if we fall short, though, every cent above our original goal will go towards paying our artists and authors an amount closer to what they deserve.

We'll be talking more about some excellent, new rewards soon. It's hard to believe, but there are still 27 days left to go in the Kickstarter campaign!

Again, thanks to our donors, and--if you haven't donated yet--please consider doing so, even if it's a small amount. Most of our donations so far have come from TLO members, not surprisingly, and issue 1 is dedicated to all of you. It won't disappoint.

Re: Vastarien Kickstarter Campaign is Live

I pitched in, though I wish I could've given more. When your life is a frictionless spinning in the void, you're unlikely to have a large bank account.

I look forward to seeing this completed. Perhaps it will even put a smile on Ligotti's face.

"In a less scientific age, he would have been a devil-worshipper, a partaker in the abominations of the Black Mass; or would have given himself to the study and practice of sorcery. His was a religious soul that had failed to find good in the scheme of things; and lacking it, was impelled to make of evil itself an object of secret reverence."

~ Clark Ashton Smith, "The Devotee of Evil"
