Here's the cover art of our Kickstarter Exclusive MU short fiction - to be launched on Nov 9
Dear MU Scholars,
If you recall, our $58K stretch goal was commissioning a piece of short fiction set in Miskatonic University by British Fantasy and Wonderland Book Award-nominated author Molly Tanzer. Her story, The Deductive Method, is now completed! Here's the blurb:
"Graduate programs at any university are a grind, a perpetually uphill marathon that exhaust even the most brilliant scholar. At Miskatonic University, the perils facing the unsuspecting grad students include far darker, stranger things than cutthroat departmental politics and shrinking financial aid, as Simcha discovers when she takes up a predatory professor's offer of access to an unpublished Sherlock Holmes tale penned by the consulting detective's creator, Arthur Conan Doyle."
And the cover ($67K Stretch Goal) is done too! It was painted by Victor Leza, cover artist for numerous Call of Cthulhu releases including such titles as Doors to Darkness, Nameless Horrors, and the forthcoming Call of Cthulhu Starter Edition. Right now, our fiction executive editor James Lowder is working with our layout specialist Nick Nacario to present the tale in multiple electronic formats (PDF, EPUB, MOBI, PRC), ready for launch on November 9.
To whet your appetite until then, take a look at Victor Leza's cover:
All backers at Professor level ($25) and above will be able to download The Deductive Method on November 9th from Backerkit. The story will remain a MU: the Restricted Collection Kickstarter exclusive until mid-2019.
As always, thanks for supporting our Kickstarter!
