Happy New Year, all. 2010 was an amazing year for us, and we're looking forward to what promises to be an even better 2011 (thanks in large part to all of you). With the much needed holiday downtime behind us, we're anxious to get cracking again.

Here's a peek at the pint glass design...

    - EXCLUSIVE REWARD (updated Oct. 30) -- One of Robert Berry's 69 original character sketches of random Dubliners (based on availability). Rob has been making character sketches for crowd scenes, and while we don't want to alter our existing rewards structure, we feel strongly enough about these new sketches that we want to add them. So, we're making them exclusive to $35 contributors. You can find galleries of these sketches on's blog and on the ULYSSES "SEEN" Facebook page. Look for new images to be added to these galleries every day or two as Rob produces more of them. The first contributor will get the first opportunity to choose a sketch, and so on.

The program also features a b-side with "twenty important questions about this chapter". Perfect for reading groups and people trying to explain the importance of Joyce to disbelieving friends & all the rewards for the lower levels, too.
