The ‘Sean Rowe Is Making a New Album!’ Kickstarter.

That’s always nice to hear: as to what it’s for, well, ‘Sean Rowe Is Making a New Album!‘ is fairly straightforward, no?

I actually left the house and went to where Sean Rowe was playing a show to see him live. This meant that I had to go into Dizzy City, and I never go into Dizzy City. Worth it nonetheless.

The ‘The Citadel at Norðvorn’ Kickstarter.

Gonna be interesting if the title works under the new WordPress regime:

Anyway, The Citadel at Norðvorn was done by the same guy who did Hall of Judgment, and I kind of have a vested interest in encouraging SJG to do third-party GURPS stuff. Besides, Hall of Judgment was fun. My players had a good time with it at WashingCon.

The deceptively expensive SJG Pocket Box Games of the Eighties Kickstarter.

This one will get expensive real fast, if you let it.

Your best bet here is to hope that you already have most of these, thus allowing you to get away with only tossing down twenty bucks for the gap in your library. I actually have most of these, but I don’t have Necromancer. So, I get Necromancer, no worries, everything’s cool.

Until the hidden stretch goals unlock, of course.

The ‘Termination Shock’ Science Fiction RPG Kickstarter.

Termination Shock (from Greg Stolze) looks very much of interest.

A First Contact setting where you’re not a highly trained member of the Federation; you were this guy working on Mars somewhere, and now you’re working without a net.  It sounds like a recipe for disaster and player-charactering (which is where you take the disasters, and arrange them so that the explosions do useful things for your character).  And it’s almost funded, too.

The Termination Shock Kickstarter.

Termination Shock looks very tempting, but the dinero situation precludes it.  At least right away.  But feel free to indulge, if you’re into RPGS.

:blink: :blink: There’s a novel-length version of ‘Who Goes There?’ And now a Kickstarter?

I may or may not have uttered a twelve-letter obscenity denoting supreme surprise when hearing this news.

While researching his new bookAstounding: John W. Campbell, Isaac Asimov, Robert A. Heinlein, L. Ron Hubbard, and the Golden Age of Science Fiction, author Alec Nevala-Lee learned that Campbell had actually written a novel-length version of [“Who Goes There?”], which he cut down for publication in the magazine.

Spotting a reference in one of Campbell’s surviving letters to a box of manuscripts the editor had sent to Harvard for archiving, Nevala-Lee tracked down the box at the university and discovered that it contained Frozen Hell, the full-length original version of Campbell’s story.

OK, this one actually IS a Kickstarter plug: Draculagate.

The Draculagate Kickstarter is for a graphic novel about the USA trying to navigate its way through a diplomatic catastrophe between Canada and Transylvania (the one with all the monsters). I have been personally assured by one of the creators that they were actively avoiding making it an explicit, targeted political allegory; and as the pages they’re showing don’t look particularly objectionable*, I’m going to give it a whirl.  Because, honestly: however absurd it gets, it won’t be as absurd as it would be in real life.
