  2. Select this reward

    Pledge $4 or more About $4

    You'll receive a holiday card from the author's collection -- either blank so you can use it yourself, or signed. We've been making our own cards most years since the 1980s -- some are topical or fannish (Red Sox World Series win, Babylon 5 reference), others are more generic -- and you can request any variety we have left, or take pot luck.
