Pics and Vids (Coyote Level!)

reward item
reward item
$3
per month
Weekly Chicago History stories, plus at least one mini historical tour on video (under 4 min) every week, AND two "cemetery coyote" photographs per week until I run out (which will take at least a year). These photos were so popular I had to take them off Facebook, but you can see them here! 

Most of these vids and pics will be exclusive for as long as the patreon runs. In addition, I'll occasionally put up sneak peaks of upcoming books and projects, or random drawings, photos, etc.

Deep Researcher!

reward item
reward item
$5
per month
All the above PLUS at least two longer video tours (5-20 minutes) per month, AND access to archived lectures and presentations that I've given over the years, and, occasionally, a longer post from "deep research" - such as pdfs of, say, psychological tests from the 1919 "Ragged Stranger" case, the confession of Nicholas "The Choir Boy" Viana, cool finds from probate and lawsuit records, and other fascinating stuff. 

Most will be exclusive for however long the patreon lasts, though some might be posted elsewhere now and then. Some of the livestreamed tours will be saved for this tier. 

HH Holmes Pack

reward item
reward item
$10
per month
All of the above PLUS a weekly goodie from my extensive HH Holmes collection. In researching my book on him I gathered THOUSANDS of files, many of which are not online anywhere. There was stuff from the legal archives, the library of congress...

One week the post might be some rare images, the next week it might be a pdf of an article I saved from a microfilm reel that has never been digitized, the next week it might be paperwork from one of the times Holmes was sued. At least one post per week, plus bonus photos and tidbits frequently.

Fascinating deep dives into the "White City Devil!"

About Adam Selzer

I'm Adam Selzer from Mysterious Chicago tours - author of Mysterious Chicago, HH Holmes: The True History of the White City Devil, Ghosts of Chicago, and the upcoming Graceland Cemetery: Stories Symbols and Secrets - more than 20 books total! I'm bringing my research and tours to the virtual realm! Here, you'll get access to cool pics and stories from Chicago history, video "virtual tours," the famous "cemetery coyote" photos that were so popular I had to take them down, archived recordings of tours and lectures, sneak peaks at upcoming books, and gems from my research in HH Holmes and other parts of Chicago history - including tons of documents, data, and photos that have never been digitized before!

Current events have public tours on hiatus, so this is how I'll stay employed for now.  The tentative schedule is:

- "Chicago History of the Week" post every Monday, usually featuring cool stories that slipped through the cracks over the years.
- Short video tour (1-3 min) every Monday.
- A cemetery coyote photo every Wednesday.
- A Chicago history "archive find" or archived lecture/tour recording every Thursday (and other random times).
- An HH Holmes archive find every Friday
- Longer videos every couple of weeks.
- Sneak peaks at upcoming books and projects occasionally. 
- Bonus content at random times!  This could be anything from more Chicago History videos / photos to old ephemera from my previous careers in music and YA literature. 

You'll also get alerts for longer "virtual tours" that I'll be conducting while large gatherings are bad for public health - and maybe beyond!
