"Saving rare, forgotten, out-of-print vintage science fiction for the digital future, one e-book at a time!"

 

They search out the rights holders and get permission to reprint classic forgotten old science fiction books as ebooks.

I was fortunate enough to get a lifetime membership from the previous KS (now that was a GOOOOD Xmas present) and can report they provided an entertaining mix of stuff rescued from obscurity (including some really interesting stuff I'm surprised hadn't managed to get back in e-print before)

 

Although I don't need to I'm throwing a few dollars their way this time too

 

so if you love SF/F consider doing the same

 

or if you know about a great book that is no longer in print that should be (legally) available as an ebook let them know (the more info you can provide such as ownership/author or executors contact details/etc the more likely they are to be able to make stuff happen)

I hate eBooks.

I love the feel of old paper.

I have spent years looking for a book to complete a series.

 

But if this is a way for me to access some books I may never get a chance to read...

 

Reminder on.  Time to save up $150.

 

Do the scans include copies of the covers as well?  I love the old artwork.

      The officially licensed Evil Dead 2 Board Game is the tabletop experience Evil Dead 2 fans have been dying for--featuring at least 8 custom figures with art depicting the terrifying and iconic characters, monsters, and locales from the cult classic film. 2-6 players will work together in 60–90 minute sessions to gather pages of the Ex-Mortis while trying to survive demon attacks, supernatural events, and avoid turning into evil deadites themselves.

      A certain platypus managed to snag a Maiden Bust on my behalf.
       
      I love the sculpt. The casting is... meh. Sorry Reaper, metal is working better for you than resin. The resin had funky tiny chunks on parts, edge of the hand and rose are odd, and lips are a little rough on the edges. Mostly rough edges. I cleaned what I could, and am using gloss varnish on other odd bits to smooth them, but I can't get it all. 
       
      But in the slightly funky surface, I saw an opportunity. What if she wasn't quite a maiden? What if she was kinda... dead? Not all the way dead. Just becoming dead or undead, as if from a curse. And the rose is the only thing holding the curse at bay. 
       
      So maybe Cyr is crazy. Maybe Cyr is going to paint something awesome. 
       
      So far she has gray primer, dabs of gloss varnish, eyes, maiden flesh on one side, dusky flesh on the other, and a base coated rose. 
       
      Her live area will be blonde. Her dead side will have "white" hair, and a blackish rose. 
       
      The dusky skin and the vallejo nocturna white flesh are amazingly similar in tone, but very different in feel. Right now the difference is subtle, but as I shade it, the live side will get more rosy and warm, while the dead side will become more gaunt and sullen, like a starving vampire. 
       
      At least... that's the plan. 
       
      Think I can pull it off?
