About

I am Robert E. Wronski, Jr.  I am the author of the Horror Crossover Encyclopedia and Television Crossover Universe:  Worlds and Mythology Volume I.  I also have a blog at www.televisioncrossoveruniverse.com and I host a podcast called the Television Crossover Universe podcast.

Because of the success of the Horror Crossover Encyclopedia, which was a reference guide to fictional crossovers within horror, demonstrated a shared reality which I call the Horror Universe, I've decided to do another one.

This time, however, I'm going from dark to light, and covering animation.  I will be applying the same methodology used in the previous book.  This book looks to be a lot bigger than the first book.  The Horror Crossover Encyclopedia ended up being a very heavy book at over 500 pages, and this one looks like it will have to be broken down into two volumes of that size.  

Right now, I am forced to work out of the local library, as I don't have the funds to work from home.  This is a very difficult task when researching cartoons.  It's extremely difficult to do all the necessary research and writing within the time constraints of library hours, and the noise limitations of a library. 

This is where you come in.  I am seeking "only" the costs which will cover what I need to finish the book from my home office.  The donations will go directly to wi-fi, Netflix, and Hulu for the amount of time needed to finish the book, and a DVD player.  

Fans of my work have been extremely generous in the past, and I hope I can count on you once more.  I really hate asking for money, but crowdfunding seems to be a regular part of the process these days for those who create, and so I am forced to submit to that process and ask for help to complete this awesome project.

Risks and challenges

I'm currently working on this book and another book: Television Crossover Universe: Worlds and Mythology Volume II, at the same time. Worlds and Mythology II is much closer to completion and doesn't require as much of the research tools for which I'm seeking donations.

Besides the books, I also have to balance my time with other projects. I host a weekly podcast, for which I am also the producer, and I maintain a blog. In addition, I devote a portion of my time to volunteering within my community. Because of that, the timeline for this project is a goal with an endtime that may be closer or later than a year.

Finally, because I'm asking for a relatively small amount of money, the bare minimum, to fund this project, I can't afford rewards other than acknowledgements in print or on air. I hope this does not detract you from donating. If I could offer gifts like signed books, I would have to ask for more money to pay for the costs of the books and the shipping. I'd rather ask for less than have to ask for more in order to pay for rewards.
