Funded! This project was successfully funded on November 1, 2009.

Update #2

Clearly, occult forces are at work here


It's basically half a day in, and the book is 40% funded. This is amazing!

My favorite part is that it's totally a mix of DIGITAL PACK and SUPER OCCULT VALUE PACK, and of people I know & people I don't.

I can't say thanks enough to all of you who have jumped in immediately. It's kinda like an election: any endorsement is good, but an early endorsement is extra-good, because it takes courage. Thank you.

      after a friend pointed me to and told me about this kickstarter project I knew I had to support it. And the option to get a physical book was even better. I signed up for Super Occult because I love the idea of being able to leave social objects around (I've given away 4 copies of Ignore Everybody by @gapingvoid already) and of course I had to blog to try and drive some some support

      @Matthew: Oh man. That's the coolest thing I've heard all day. Thanks for following me over here.

      @Aaron: Hmm... super-secret turbo occult team... an interesting idea...

      You don't know me, but I looked at your site because of the luck dragon and can't stay away. I may become a bit of a true fan.
