      Sorry I missed these comments. Ebooks went out several months ago via Backerkit email. I'll follow up with you privately to send them by email ASAP.

      Again with the "I don't read emails" thing... Did I miss mention of the ebook version?

      Hey Shaun, so glad the replacement book got to you in good shape! Thanks so much for the kind words. :)

    5. Shaun Cobble on October 3, 2016

      USPS decided to beat my copy up during shipping, but SImon had my back immediately and took care of things. I've never had a Kickstarter creator be so quick to respond and handle an issue, and I'll gladly support anything else you do in the future. And I absolutely LOVE the book! Thanks for a great project!

      Hey Michael, it appears a set of books went out without bookmarks. My deepest apologies, if you (or anyone else affected) would message me privately I'll confirm your address and get it out to you ASAP. Sorry again!

      Greetings,
      I got my book today, but no book mark.
      What can you do for me?
      Let me know.
      Thank you.

      Anyone in the UK received their book yet?
      Just wanted to check that there's wasn't a tax bill along with this one..

      Hey Angel, your order's packed and waiting to be processed. Had a bit of a snafu with the last round of label printing but it should be in the mail no later than Monday and you'll get tracking via Backerkit as soon as it does. Sorry for the delay!

    16. Angel Baker on September 8, 2016

      I am terrible at reading email and reading updates... Will there be a tracking notification, or a shipping notification to me when the book is sent? I'm very impatiently waiting to read it ! (having NEVER read anything from Lovecraft... I'm saving myself for you Simon...)

      Glad you got it! If you didn't get your bookmark it's an error on my part. I'll contact you privately and get it out to you.

      They are three points derived from the text of The Call of Cthulhu, detailing the rescue of the Alert, the location where the Alert found the Emma, and the coastline of risen R'lyeh, as encountered by the Alert.

      Hey Paul, Backerkit surveys were sent via email several months ago. If you haven't received your survey or any of the reminders you can access your survey here: https://the-book-of-starry-wisdom-apocrypha-of-lovecrafts.backerkit.com

      If this doesn't work for you for some reason, please email me directly at strixpublishingllc@gmail.com and I'll get you set up manually. Cheers!

    22. Paul Ettelt on May 19, 2016

      When about will the surveys be sent out?

      I'll be locking the Pledge Manager in a few weeks. It ended up making sense to leave it open past the original March date since I won't be placing a production order until the first week of May. I'll post an update giving a 7 day warning before I lock and process pledges.

    24. Jacob Tothe on April 9, 2016

      Any word on when the pledge manager will be processed?

      @ Brian Fox: Hey Brian, the printed map will be 12.25" x 17.25"

      Hey Simon, what are the dimensions of the printed map?

    27. Sean Whittaker on December 1, 2015

      You should do your own Internet searches to be thorough, but I would recommend (after the rest of HPL's oeuvre) Clark Ashton Smith, Robert E. Howard, Robert Chambers and for something modern, Laird Barron.

    28. Greg Webster on November 16, 2015

      Just wanted to throw this out. I've never known much about the mythos. Could anyone give me recommended reading after this book?

      I've only pledged to a very small number of Kickstarter projects - I think this is actually #3. I am very, very excited for this!

      @Sean Whittaker It's definitely on the table if everyone keeps sharing this weekend!

      Still waffling about getting a print copy of the map. Hopefully that first stretch goal is reached ...

      Hi Cwyllog, I'm making arrangements to send all the EU shipments to a location in Germany from which they will be sent to backers. This should avoid any import fees on your behalf. Hope this helps!

    38. Cwyllog on October 16, 2015

      Sorry if I missed it, but how will you plan to cover European deliveries?
      Do we need to depend on the vagaries of the import tax police or is there European dispatch lined up?

    39. Steven G. Saunders on October 8, 2015

      I can't wait, either! This book is going to be terribly magnificent.

      Thanks, L! If this is successful I have plans for at least two more volumes! The next one will likely revolved around Yog Sothoth and The Dunwich Horror.
