I got a request on Tumblr to bring back Saturday Waffling, so here it is. First off, and totally unrelated to anything, there’s a Comixology sale on Gillen and McKelvie’s work that means WicDiv collections are going for $5 a pop. If you haven’t read WicDiv yet, I am jealous of the things you get to experience for the first time.
Let’s see. Vague update on things. The Patreon has undergone the slight deflation that it always does over a few months to where I stopped breaking even on the site expansion again. Not a huge deal – it’s not like we’re bleeding money or things are unsustainable or anything. But it’d be nice to get back to that threshold, so I spruced things up a bit over there, including redoing the milestones to reflect Patreon’s decision to base everything on net income instead of pledged income. And there’s a goal now for Game of Thrones S6 reviews, if you’re into that kind of thing. Anyway, if you can spare a buck a week or whatever, that’s here.
The next Last War in Albion chapter continues to be like pulling teeth. Consider this my wry joke about massive delays as an in hindsight inevitable consequence of going “let’s mirror Watchmen.” Anyway, the opportunity to knock off some one-off pieces to fulfill Patreon requests, which I was lax on for a while anyway, is nice. Hoping to have that going by the 25th.
Further out, I’m currently expecting the Neoreaction a Basilisk Kickstarter to be in May, and Last War in Albion Volume 1 to be in July.
As for discussion, I’ve not really touched the Retro Hugos part of my nominating ballot beyond joking that the Puppies should be able to find lots of German sci-fi to their liking from 1940. So what actually is eligible and worth nominating there?
