Phil Foglio (previously) writes, "Studio Foglio is kickstarting a new Girl Genius Collection! The Incorruptible Library covers the adventures of Agatha Heterodyne and her friends as they journey beneath the streets of Paris. There they encounter hidden subterranean civilizations, forgotten labyrinths filled with secrets, and a healthy dollop of Adventure, Romance, and Mad Science!"
Kickstarter has proven to be an excellent method for us to get the Girl Genius series out to those sophisticated, discerning webcomic cognoscenti who own computers and don't mind giving strangers money electronically. If you are reading this, then you are already halfway towards joining their proud, well-read ranks. You can fulfill your destiny by searching for 'Girl Genius' on Kickstarter, or you can simply follow this elegant and well-crafted link.
Phil and Kaja Foglio have been producing Girl Genius since the year 2000, making it 'One of the worst Get-Rich-Quick schemes ever.' In that time, Girl Genius has won three Hugo Awards, and was recently selected as one of the webcomics to be archived in perpetuity at the Library of Congress. This significantly ups the chances of Girl Genius becoming the holy book of some future, post-apocalyptic religion, and thus, by supporting it, your chances of becoming some sort of patron saint -- and let's be honest, that would be pretty cool.

My thanks to Tom Shippey, who listed it alongside of David Walton's Three Laws Lethal, Daniel Suarez's Delta-v, Erin Craig's House of Salt and Sorrows and Michael Swanwick's The Iron Dragon's Mother!
Last month, I posted about “witch bottles” — containers of curious items like human teeth, fish hooks, glass shards, and undetermined liquid — sometimes found in chimneys or inside walls of old buildings where they were placed to ward off evil spells, spirits, and curses. Turns out that there’s a new book — “Magical House […]
I first met Bill Gibson in 1999 when I was profiling him for the Globe and Mail as part of a review of his book "All Tomorrow's Parties." Since then, we've become friends and colleagues, and I genuinely treasure every chance I get to sit down with him, because he's both fantastically clever and incredibly […]

For some folks, writing notes by hand is just plain easier, but having to re-type them later can be a huge bore, not to mention time-sink. The guys from Rocketbook successfully merged the best parts of analog and digital note-taking with their Everlast notebook awhile back. And now, that tech just got a lot more […]
There are fast-paced card games, and some of them even require enough dexterity for a mini-workout (like Skip-Bo or Snap). But there’s nothing quite like the Mokuru® Card Game, which uses an already addictive fidget toy as the centerpiece for a cutthroat game of tabletop challenges. The game is named for the toy that gets […]
