The Charlotte Geeks have been long-time supporters of local publisher Falstaff Books. Owner John Hartness has been a guest on Guardians of the Geekery more often than any other person. Falstaff has had a huge presence at our Markets, and we look forward to their future participation.
We here at Geek Headquarters are happy to promote Falstaff Book’s latest Kickstarter for Nevermore: An Anthology Inspired by Edgar Allen Poe. This new collection will contain eighteen original stories written by authors who have been inspired by Poe’s gothic style. Each story captures the essence of Poe’s work while offering a unique twist on his themes of horror, suspense and the macabre. Amongst the authors are some local favorites – Misty Massey, Nicole Givens Kurtz, Gail Martin, Jason Gilbert, Michael G Williams, R.S. Belcher and John Hartness, himself.
This stories for this anthology are already edited and waiting. The goal of the Kickstarter is to fund the initial publication of the anthology in three formats – eBook, trade paperback and deluxe hardcover. But wait! There’s more! If that initial goal is met, Falstaff has created some additional goals. Some of the extra goals include adding illustrations, creating an audiobook and a zoom hangout with several of the authors. There are also two extra goals to pay the authors more for their work in the anthology. The Charlotte Geeks have always encouraged our members to support local authors and artists and this is a great way to do that.
So, if you are a fan of Poe and are ready for some spine-chilling gothic stories – click the link below and pledge your support to Falstaff’s Kickstarter! You can pledge as little as $1, but the more you pledge the better the rewards for you will be. Some rewards are limited, so make your pledge and claim some of them before someone else does!
