    An actual copy of 'Amateur of Life and Death', sent to the address of your choice. I know it's a bit steep but it's an art book with 40 illustrations and funny stuff so I won't be cutting corners. I won't be drinking anything either. That's for the cheap seats. And I'll throw in a badger. No, not that. A badge.

    Same as above, but this time I'll sign it. Apparently this will give it value and you can show it to your grandchildren after I'm dead.

    Signed copy of 'Amateur of Life and Death' AND a beautiful screenprinted teeshirt on organic fairtrade cotton with Dan Laidler's cover drawing on the front. And a badger. I could have skimped on these but decided against it. Worth it even if you have to take the book to a charity shop. Choose from S/M/L ('cos that's all I've got).

    It just gets better. Two signed books, two teeshirts and some badgers, but you'll also be in an accompanying illustration, to be drawn by Godlike genius artist Mark Weighton (look him up). Just send me a photo & I'll make him draw you for food.

    Now we're motoring! For a mere £175 you get four copies of the book, two teeshirts, some badgers and you'll be invited to sunny Herne Hill in South East London, where you will be recorded as a character voice for one of the weekly podcasts with the audio team. It's a hoot normally, and we'll throw in some food and drink as well. We're good like that.

    Pledge £200 or more About US$ 260

    This is a serious reward. Seriously. Four signed copies of the book, four teeshirts, some badgers and...wait for it...a signed original artwork from either:

    A) MARK WEIGHTON
    B) URSULA MCLAUGHLIN
    C) MAGDA ARCHER
    D) SASCHA GRAVENSTEIN

    These will appear in the book (and I'll show you in the updates as the project progresses) but you get the originals. Can you get your heads around that? Staggering! I might have a pop at it myself.

    Pledge £250 or more About US$ 325

    If you're the kind of person who is prepared to help me to the tune of £250 for my little project, the very least I can do is:

    A) GIVE YOU FOUR SIGNED BOOKS
    B) GIVE YOU FOUR TEESHIRTS AND A FEW BADGERS
    C) TAKE YOU OUT TO DINNER WITH THE AUDIO TEAM
    D) TAKE YOU FOR A DRIVE THROUGH THE SUNNIER SPOTS OF SE LONDON IN MY TRIUMPH HERALD

    Yes, the one in the film. It's blue, convertible & very sweet. Probably best before the dinner though. Just in case...

    I'm chancing my arm here, but it is remotely possible that altruism of old still exists. If it does and you are that person, we obviously need to talk. Any combination of rewards and/or involvement are not only possible, but I'll be your dog for life as well. This is a project-enabling amount, and the prize will obviously reflect that. You'll see.

    You'll like this. Two signed books, two teeshirts and some badgers, but I'll also write three of you into one of the book posts. Not quite sure what's going to happen yet, but you'll be in there. In print. In a book. Think about that for a minute and then hit the pledge button.
