    THE COLLECTOR: Dan's jacket, with prominent "Writer for Hire" back patch embroidered by the artist with dental floss during the year he struggled to begin the Cyberpunk Apocalypse writers' project. Daniel McCloskey has worn this jacket since he was 16, going to the Pirate's Cove punk house where he was handed his first zine. He wore it during protests in the early 2000s, he wore it when he played his first shows, and read his first readings. He used it as a pillow on three reading tours, and wore it in bed when he lived without heat. Two weeks ago the jacket was cut from Dan's body by the trauma unit at Allegheny General Hospital. It is mounted with Plexi on scrap wood from the Cyberpunk Apocalypse writers' house with notes from the various sketchbooks Daniel has kept over the decade this simple canvas jacket has shaped and been shaped by him.
    This pledge also comes with one copy of "A Zine About Billy" the $1 zine that describes the process of starting the Cyberpunk Apocalypse, and finishing his first novel.
