    PETIT PAL
    For $1 you get our love. Or more of it, as the case may be. We'll all softly whisper your name to ourselves as we drift off to sleep at night. Or maybe we won't. You won't know the difference. No one will. And it won't matter, because you'll be gazing at your PDF of Golden Son, Erin's 15-page PWS short, and a high res wallpaper of PWS' amazing wraparound cover.

    PRINT PARTNER
    $20 = 1 print copy of Poor Wayfaring Strangers. I am not responsible for any devil gris gris that might accompany this tome ... if you can call a 100ish page perfect bound comic anthology a tome. I really think that's pushing it. But seriously it reeks of undiscovered eldritch power even from way in the hypothetical future in which it exists.

    WESTERN FANTASY PRINT PACK
    This is what I'm talking about. This is the VALUE NEXUS, right here. PWS, in print, along with Next Town Over Volume 1, also in print. How? How can one small rigid mailer contain this kind of combined gravitas?

    Q: What the hell is Next Town Over?

    A: [Erin's] fantasy western I can only assume is germane to your interests since you're here looking at this anthology of fantasy westerns. And while there are other channels through which to pick up this book, none of the others help print PWS ... and also help you in that you'll be getting it signed and ridiculously discounted.
