I just received word that the Bacterionomicon shipment from China is expected to dock in NYC on March 2nd and expected to arrive in our Massachusetts warehouse March 9th. This is really happening! I know, I know, by now many of you have decided that we are sophisticated internet scammers who have constructed an elaborate plan to enrich ourselves by promising esoteric bestiaries and then absconding with the money to the Cayman Islands, but this is really happening! Books (and add-ons) = soon. Obviously all you international backers will have a longer wait, but we are actually getting close to mailing these things out. Hooray!
Our Kickstarter campaign raised almost $100,000 to make the Bacterionomicon a reality – and a reality it will soon be. The files have all been sent to the printer, and the book will be available for general sale in the early part of 2015.
The Bacterionomicon is a bestiary of monstrous bacteria and a compendium of the heroic warriors that fight them, all illustrated in a high fantasy style.
Pre-orders available here.
When was the last time your expectations were WILDLY EXCEEDED? When we started our Kickstarter campaign, we really weren’t sure how it would turn out. Imagine our surprise when we met our goal in a matter of DAYS! The campaign ends on March 31st, and it looks like we’ll be meeting stretch goals and adding new content, fancying up the cover, and creating a whole line of posters to accompany it. Who knew? As it turns out, internet is TEH AWZOMNESS. It’s also been a thrill to really connect with “our tribe” scattered as they are across the world: people who are passionate about medicine, microbiology, gaming, fantasy, and creative approaches to learning. Thank you internet!
