Success!!! (And we owe it all to you)!

Wow, the last 30 days went FAST.  

First of all, we'd like to say a sincere THANK YOU to each and every one of our supporters, who helped us blow past our original funding goal, and take us to nearly 350%, with nearly 1400 subscribers.  We're already working hard on getting the store and the voting system up, and will be reaching out to subscribers over the next few days to collect the information we need from you to send your rewards.  

Second, we'd like to say thank you again. Really, thank you.

Third, we need your help. Many of you have volunteered to help us out along the way, and several of you are deeply involved in this project already, and we already know we couldn't do it without you.  We could use a few more volunteers to help us tag book photos, if anyone is interested, and if you've reached out but we haven't put you to work yet, don't worry. We'll be bugging you soon. 

But (fourth) what we really need right now is someone local to NYC (Brooklyn preferably) who would like to help us out in person.  If you're interested in scifi books, copyright, publishing, or working in a scifi bookshop, and have some time to spare, drop a line to ash - at-  We may just need your particular set of skills. 

More soon, but for now, let us just say one more time: Thank you!

      I will be happy to help with any tasks that can be done remotely. I cannot travel to Brooklyn, unfortunately - I am based on the other side of the Atlantic.

      I would love to help out any way I can, although I'm juuust far enough away the commute to the city would be too far. (Orange County, NY if you're wondering.)

      Hi Brenda - there will definitely be ways to help us remotely in the near and long term. Thanks!
