About

What’s this all about?
Hello, my name’s Justin Howe, and I am a science fiction and fantasy writer. My work has appeared in places such as Beneath Ceaseless Skies, Reckoning, and Clarkesworld. I also maintain the website 10badhabits.com where I blather about books and other nerdy topics.

I am using Patreon to support my writing (and lifestyle, which involves a lot of pajamas, tea, and books.) And what will you get in return for your support?

Quite simply put you will get nothing.

You get nothing
Let me explain: While in the past I’ve offered patrons an exclusive monthly column about old weird books called Yesterweird, those posts are now going to continue over at 10badhabits.com. As of this moment there will be no difference between supporting me and not supporting me. Oh yes, you’ll have my gratitude and thanks and emanations of good feelings in your direction, but materially? Materially, you will have nothing.

No rough drafts, no serial novels, no sneak peaks, no discords, no podcasts, no sub stack coupons, no forums, no vlogs, no postcards, etc.

Nothing.

At least for now.

Are you sure you know how patreon works?
Right now, your support will go towards a blog anyone can read for free. Yes, it will also go towards works in progress, but there’s no guarantee anyone will ever see those. Would you like to hear about a novel that might never be published or have me promise a self-pubbed RPG that never materializes? Or would you like me not to tell you about those things and then possibly surprise you with them at some point in the future? I don't want to make any promises I can't keep. What I can guarantee is a blog post about an old book, once a month, and various other assorted book club like activities. For 2020, the plan’s to do a read along of Alberto Manguel's Black Water anthology of fantastic literature.

The Tiers of Nothing
  1. 1USD - Welcome Aboard! You get nothing and over the course of the year you buy me two coffee-shop beverages.
  2. 3USD - A Place of Repose: You get nothing and over the course of the year you buy me a dinner and a few beers.
  3. 5USD - In the Thick of It: You get nothing and over the course of the year you pay one of my bills. Why are you doing this?
  4. 10USD - A Fine Mess: You get nothing and over the course of the year you buy me a round-trip high-speed train ticket from Busan to Seoul. We can’t go on living like this. If we ever meet I am going to talk to you about lowering your pledge.
  5. All other pledge amounts: You get nothing and I leave it up to your imagination to fill in the details by multiplying your pledge amount by twelve and then thinking of something you buy with that amount.
And I know this all sounds very flippant, but last year I mostly used patreon as a blog site and it's lousy for blogging. This year I will shift so the yesterweird writing is more public facing and this space will be used for any secret projects that materialize.
