Born of the U.S. government's 1928 raid on the degenerate coastal town of Innsmouth, Massachusetts, the covert agency known as Delta Green spent four decades opposing the forces of darkness with honor, but without glory. Stripped of sanction after a disastrous 1969 operation in Cambodia, Delta Green's leaders made a secret pact: to continue their work without authority, without support, and without fear. Delta Green agents slip through the system, manipulating the federal bureaucracy while pushing the darkness back for another day—but often at a shattering personal cost.
Ten years ago, everything changed. It's time you found out how.
It's January 2001. The Delta Green agents code-named Cyrus and Charlie get the call: A young boy dead and buried for years has reappeared, healthy and happy, as if no time at all had passed and the disease that killed him had never been. The family thinks it's a miracle, but Delta Green has seen too many miracles turn to madness. Cyrus and Charlie must discover what horrors lurk behind this one. The mission brings them to the brink of apocalypse—to the edge of the revelation and destruction of Delta Green—to secrets and terrors at the heart of reality itself.
Bring These Horrors to the World
Through a Glass, Darkly is a new novel written by Delta Green co-creator Dennis Detwiller. The book is finished. It's been revised, reviewed over and over by editors Adam Scott Glancy and Shane Ivey, and revised again. Now we want to bring it to you.
If the Kickstarter project succeeds, we'll publish the book in three formats:
- A limited hardback edition, with a full-color dustcover, for Kickstarter supporters.
- An ebook for devices such as the Kindle, Nook and iPad.
- A paperback edition for retail distribution.
With this fundraiser we aim to make sure that the author is paid for his work and that we don't go broke putting it together and printing it.
In fact, here's a breakdown of the budget (click to enlarge).
"Printing" is the estimated cost of printing about 1,000 copies of the hardcover limited edition, based on recent quotes from our favorite printers.
"Shipping and Handling" is the expected total cost of packing, shipping and handling to send the hardback edition to supporters, based on past sales and fundraisers.
"Writing and Art" goes to Dennis, the author and cover artist, to pay him for years of hard work in creating and improving this story.
Help us bring Through a Glass, Darkly to the unsuspecting world.
