“Proverbs of Hell” will run tomorrow because I forgot to screenshot the images on my desktop before leaving the house for a laptop-only day. So instead we bring you a general update on where the site is, since we let the two year anniversary pass without any real mention. There’s a fair amount to cover, but let’s start with blog stuff, as it’s where things get interesting. Obviously Proverbs of Hell is my current project. It’ll run more or less uninterrupted until late February. After that, my desired next project is the Peter Capaldi era of TARDIS Eruditorum.
Yup. It’s happening. Well, hopefully. RIght now it’s the $300 goal on the Patreon, which is at $283. I’m not really worried about it hitting $300 for new TARDIS Eruditorum. But what I’m curious whether we can make the $350 goal happen. At $300 I’ll blog all the episodes from Deep Breath through Twice Upon a Time, but just those. At $350 you’ll get all the other bits – the Pop Between Realities, the Outside the Governments, and the You Were Expecting Someone Elses. (And maybe a Time Can Be Rewritten. We’ll see if there’s any rewritten time in time.) I suspect a lot of whether that happens is going to come down to where the Patreon is in early February when the big push towards the finish line happens. If we enter February well past $300, I think $350 is doable. So if you want me to write about Rick and Morty, The Lego Movie, Blackstar, Class, or the Titan comics, consider tossing a dollar or two into the Patreon now.
Book-wise, I’m mostly in crunch on Neoreaction a Basilisk, which is now to the point where I’m out of “this book outright cannot be published in this state” issues and down exclusively to “I’d like to fix a few more things about it” issues. It’s not quite to “it’ll be out any day now,” but it’ll go to “any day now” any day now. There’ll be an announcement here, obviously. And in January or February I’ll run a Kickstarter for TARDIS Eruditorum Volume 7. This’ll be the model for all EP books going forward, for the basic reason that it’s easier to plan a workflow around and I make more money that way.
Once Neoreaction a Basilisk is out the door, I’ll finally get back to Last War in Albion. My hope is that I’ll be able to run Chapters 7-12 of Book Two before I run out of Capaldi Eruditorum, and that Book Three will then take over as the weekly blogging project, but we’ll see how feasible that turns out to be. But Chapter 7 will probably drop in early 2018 – I expect to start work on it, like, next week.
So basically, the theme for 2018 around here is going to be getting back to the classics.
Meanwhile, we’ve finally got Jack back from his long exile writing about the Austrian School of Economics. You’ve seen the offcuts of that essay over the past few weeks, and you can get the whole thing when Neoreaction a Basilisk drops, but if you want to read it right now, today (and why not – no Proverbs of Hell to read) you should toss some money at his Patreon, where it’s currently available for all backers. I recommend it; it’s the best thing he’s ever done.
I’ve also gotten word of what Josh’s next big project is going to be, and man, I can’t wait.
So that’s where we are. Thanks for reading, and I’ll have some Proverbs for you tomorrow.
