Then, once the revised Hartnell edition is finished, you'll get that as an ebook too, with the Kickstarter exclusive essay. It's actually cheaper than retail price!

    Pledge US$ 80 or more About US$ 80

    Much like the $50 option, signed copies of every book and a commitment to sign future books for cost of book plus shipping. But your signed books (and any future books you buy) will be numbered in the same sequence as the $250 level. The only difference is that here you do not pay for all of the books in advance - just the first four. Plus, of course, acknowledgments, exclusive essay, ebook, and thanks.

    You get to pick a topic for an extra essay in any forthcoming book: the revised Hartnell volume or any era of Doctor Who from Tom Baker on. Or, if you want, you can pick a Pertwee or Troughton topic that I'll include as an appendix to another book. You also get the standard set of rewards that every "pick a chapter" option gives you.

    Delivery date reflects the Hartnell book in this case - the timing of your essay depends on what book you pick.

    You may select a topic unrelated to Doctor Who for a four entry miniseries to run on my blog on days TARDIS Eruditorum does not run. A single series of a TV show, a run of comics, a set of films, or any other topic, I'll craft a four-entry series analyzing the topic and serialize it. Don't worry about finding something that breaks cleanly into four entries - you pick the topic, I'll do the structure. You also get all rewards from the $50 level (or, for a $30 upgrade, the $80 level - see FAQ on upgrades). Shipping date reflects physical objects - blogs will be scheduled based on how many of them I actually need to do.

    Pledge US$ 250 or more About US$ 250

    Lifetime book membership. You get copies of all three books that already exist, plus the revised Hartnell edition, plus every other volume of TARDIS Eruditorum as it comes out, all the way up to the Eleventh Doctor and the spin-offs book. Any extra things like the Logopolis book are included too. Every book will be signed and numbered, and you'll get the same number across each book. Plus you'll get the ebook. Please note that due to the fact that it involves multiple shipments the international shipping fee is unfortunately but necessarily high. Delivery date reflects first shipment of Hartnell-Pertwee books. If you have a "request an essay" reward and want to upgrade to this, please increase your donation amount, but stay on that reward tier and just let me know when the time comes that you want the book club reward tier.

    You get to pick a topic for the eleventh volume of TARDIS Eruditorum, which will focus on spin-off series: Torchwood, The Sarah Jane Adventures, and Sherlock.

Delivery date reflects estimated schedule for the eleventh book - rewards available earlier will ship earlier. If you want the essay can, at your discretion, be posted to the blog instead of held for the book (though it will be included there too).

    You can also add an essay of your choice to any book or books you want. All of them, some of them, whatever. And you'll get the signed and numbered copies of every book. You'll get the ebook, with the exclusive essay. You'll get the thanks in the acknowledgments. And if I can think of anything else cool to throw in, I'll throw it in because holy crap you just gave me a lot of money.
