I've written a short story, inspired in equal parts by H.P. Lovecraft's infamous Mythos of bleak cosmic indifference and my observations of humankind's personal, profoundly intimate indifference. It's called "Icke." It's about a young man named Francis Icke and, compared to the rest of his life, having a name like "Francis Icke" is barely a problem at all.

If you back this project and it meets its goal, I'll release it under a Creative Commons Attribution/Share-Alike/Noncommercial license. I'll put it up on my web site as a .pdf, free, for everyone, in perpetuity.

If you're familiar with my writing, you probably already know if you want to pledge or not. If you haven't read my stories before, you can find a number of them at this link.

Didn't care for those? Might as well move along then. But if you did enjoy them, you can help me release another one. If I reach my goal for "Icke," I'll release it for free, for everyone, forever―just like the stories at the link. You can help make the internet a little more interesting, a little more frightening, maybe a little more thoughtful. Up to you.

I hope you'll join us.
