A magical ritual to pay our rent

Elizabeth Sandifer created Eruditorum Press. She’s not really sure why she did that, and she apologizes for the inconvenience. She currently writes Last War in Albion, a history of the magical war between Alan Moore and Grant Morrison. She used to write TARDIS Eruditorum, a history of Britain told through the lens of a ropey sci-fi series. She also wrote Neoreaction a Basilisk, writes comics these days, and has ADHD so will probably just randomly write some other shit sooner or later. Support Elizabeth on Patreon.

    Just backed this, my first kickstarter backing ever.

    Being a relative ebook noob, what format will it be in? Will it, for example, work on an Amazon kindle?

      Any ebook without DRM will work on an Amazon Kindle if you convert it in Calibre, which is free software.

      I’ll provide the book in both .epub and .mobi forms, which cover the vast majority of ebook platforms, Kindle included. (You’ll want the latter format for Kindle.)

    That should so be the cover!

      If nothing else, the visual rhyme of the number 7 and the question marks is too melodious to discard.

        The true cover must be great, because this is lovely.

          The only thing I know about the cover is that James has been talking up his idea for Volume 7 for years.

    Excellent – the timing was particularly good, since I was actually £12 in the black and could afford to pledge $5 straight away.

    For some reason I assumed you’d be covering The Pit – so I’m keeping my fingers crossed for that final stretch goal…

    Wait…Kickstarter? January? Closed SEVEN MONTHS AGO?!? How?!?

    Ahem…sorry. As someone who has the first six volumes (and Recursive Occlusion), every once in a while checks Amazon to see if Volume 7 is out, and just happened to do a google search and find a ([Sixie] Closed? CLOSED?!? [/Sixie]) Kickstarter that I would have pledged Day 1 had I heard about it…is there going to be any other way of getting a printed copy?

    (One might very well ask why I didn’t know about it from this very website. Actually, One probably wouldn’t bother asking, although Six and Twelve, and possibly Three, would be bold enough to raise the question. And maybe Ten or Eleven, depending on the kind of day they are having. Well, given that I prefer to read the articles in print, and would be otherwise tempted to read ahead, I…don’t access the website that much. Hopefully Nine wouldn’t call me a stupid ape because of that, although if I have sunk my chances, he just might….)

      Just wanted to chime in as well. I backed the previous kickstarters and completely missed this one. Will there be options to purchase a print copy in the future? Thanks.

    I also have all the other print volumes (via Amazon.UK) and missed this (now closed) KickStarter as I was also regularly checking Amazon to see if 7 was on the horizon. Like some recent posters above, how can I now obtain a printed copy of Volume 7? Thanks!

    I am currently reading each volume of Tardis Eruditorum whilst re-watching classic Doctor Who, 1 story per week, for the last few years.
    Presently I am going to start the McCoy era in a few months, so how do I get hold of a copy of Volume 7? So I am able to keep reading your books along side the stories. Is Volume 7 going to be sold through Amazon, etc?

    Still have not seen a response on here to my previous comment 7 months ago. Missed the Kickstarter and it’s closed and now I can’t pledge. Have all other print volumes and really want this? Surely someone is reading these comments that is in the know and can respond to let those of us who missed the Kickstarter and let us know how we can get involved to obtain a copy? Be very grateful if that occurs. Thanks!

      Sorry for the slowness of my reply; must have missed your earlier comment getting posted.

      The book will be available for sale on Amazon when it’s finished, and you’ll be able to get it there. I’ll make an announcement on the site and on Twitter once it’s out.

        Oh thanks so much for getting back to me on this Elizabeth. I know you are very busy but this is greatly appreciated. I will look out for your wonderful book with great anticipation on Amazon. Cheers and good luck finalising it.
