It's a love letter to the time of H.P. Lovecraft, and at this level, we will list your name (or alter ego) as one of our special correspondents in the paper, and mail you a copy (mailing costs are included for domestic US backers), so that you can immerse yourself in our altered past! ALSO Includes a link to the digital download pack.
