Well the Kickstarter was not successful but I do want to thank everyone who contributed toward it. It was a learning experience to say the least. I probably did the dumbest thing you can with the Kickstarter and that is starting the campaign just before Thanksgiving and having it proceed through the Holiday Season. It’s not surprising that the number of people who signed on increased dramatically after New Year’s (people are busy over the Holiday Season!). Second, a lot of people asked for a hard copy of the document so I am looking into producing a 48 page chapbook of Volume 1 and offering it as part of a future campaign. Thus, if you are interested in a copy of Lovecraftian Science, a second attempt will be made sometime over the next few weeks.
I do want to thank everyone who supported the first campaign, including Mike Davis at the Lovecraft eZine and Niels Hobbs, founder and coordinator of the 2013 and upcoming 2015 NecronomiCon. To other people, such as Scott Jones and Joe Kontor and many, many others include many people on Facebook, I thank you as well for your support.
Thus, while the Kickstarter was not successful, Steve Maschuck and I will give it another go in the near future. Meanwhile, the WordPress page will continue including a wrap up of cannibalism in “The Rates in the Walls” and a detailed analysis of one of Lovecraft’s favorites of his own stories – “The Colour Out of Space.”
Again, thank you one and all – Fred.
