Extra-Spooky Halloween Update

Good news everyone! We've got a couple of important updates! One of which is about the book! 

But first: to celebrate the first anniversary of our Kickstarter launch, we're doing a 24-hour flash sale on ABHoTT, reducing the price to £5 just for today. We know you've already got your copy, but if you've been trying to convince anyone else to listen this is their one-time chance to buy it at a special price. Please point potential customers in the direction of the site:

More relevantly to some of you, we can finally confirm that after painstakingly approving two proof copies, the limited edition first run of ABHoTT tie-in books is being printed as we speak. If you're eligible to receive a copy you should already have a separate email asking for the details we need. If you don't see it, please check your spam folders, and then if you still haven't got one, email us at and we'll help you out.

Finally, if you didn't back for a book and have since decided you want one, just email us to let us know and we'll put you on the waiting list in case there are any copies left over. Just look at the picture. See how nice it looks? You could OWN that. Think about it.

Thanks again,

James and Seb.

P.S. You may be wondering why this update qualifies as extra-spooky. Well, that's because it's haunted. By an invisible skeleton. The scariest kind!

The "We've already released the thing but we're still sending you updates" update

Hello backers,

Well, A Brief History of Time Travel has been out in the wild for a few weeks now and we've had nothing but positive feedback, so that's a huge relief for us both! There have been some lovely reviews written and we're picking up new listeners all the time. Feel free to share in the satisfaction that you made this happen.

But the real reason for this email is that there's a little admin to do. First of all, everyone eligible should have received a download link by now, but if you haven't been able to make it work or you don't think you've received one, get in touch with us at, and we'll help you sort out any problems you've got.

Secondly, we're also expanding the means by which people who weren't so smart and gorgeous as to pre-back the series can get hold of it. While the preferred method is still that people drop by and buy it directly from us using Paypal, the episodes are also now available on both iTunes and Bandcamp. On the latter site, visitors can also stream the episodes (albeit in lower quality than the downloadable MP3s) for free, enabling them to preview it before they buy. If you know anyone who you think might be interested in the series, it'd be great if you could help us spread the word by linking to one (or all) of these sites!

(And if you have an iTunes account, then popping in and rating/reviewing the episodes - even if you're not buying them from there - would help us hugely)

Finally, we thought we should update you on the remaining Kickstarter rewards that are still to be delivered. First off, there's the KS-exclusive prequel episode, featuring Oscar and Kira (and some other characters currently being kept under wraps). This is still in the works - we're in the process of writing it at the moment - and we're hoping to get the cast and Producer Rhys together to record it soon, with a view to releasing it before the end of the year. It won't be as elaborate a production as the series proper, but we're hoping it'll be an extra little treat you'll enjoy.

Also, if you backed the series to the tune of £20 or above, then you're owed a print copy of The Official Companion. We're just waiting on getting the final proof copy of this delivered and checked (the first one had to go back for some tweaks), after which we'll be able to bulk order everyone's copies. So expect an email from us imminently (if you backed at that level) asking for the address to which you'd like it sent.

We hope you enjoy (or have enjoyed) listening to the show, and thanks once again for all your support!

Seb & James

If we actually had a time machine we could just skip ahead to the launch day now...
