We have an announcement to make.
If we can make it up to the $7,500 level, the book will have an introduction.
The introduction will be by none other than the New York Times bestselling author Paul S. Kemp.
I've come to know Paul through his work as a writer of fantasy and Star Wars novels set in The Old Republic, as well as his devotion to fine scotch and cigars via Twitter. He's a great guy and you should definitely follow him there. His day job puts him in the world of law and I find his political observations astute and always spot on, so when I thought of someone to introduce this book in particular, he seemed like the right person for the job.
Here is his official bio:
Paul S. Kemp is a multiple New York Times bestselling author of sword and sorcery and space opera novels, and he works very hard to make them a fun ride. He enjoys good beer, good wine, good company, and a fine scotch every now and again. While his mind is often in the fantastical fictional worlds, his body lives in Grosse Pointe, Michigan, with his wife Jennifer, his twin sons, and his two daughters. He is a graduate of the University of Michigan-Dearborn and the University of Michigan law school. When he's not writing, he practices corporate law in Detroit. Yes, that does make him a tool of "the Man," for which he shall bear everlasting shame. He hopes you enjoy his novels.
There's still more to be done, though!
First, we need to actually hit this stretch goal, and to do that, we'll need you all to tell your friends about the project and tell them why you're backing it.
Thank you all for the support you've offered thus far! We'll be finished tomorrow!
In the meantime, here's Erin Kubinek's portrait of John Flammang Schrank, the man who thought McKinley's ghost came to him in a vision and told him to shoot Theodore Roosevelt to avenge him.
