Welcome to the Among the Stars and Bones Patreon page. We are an independent audio drama and each pledge makes the job of producing the best show we can that much easier. Your support would mean the world to us and allow us to continue to tell stories large and small in this universe we are creating.

WHAT IS AMONG THE STARS AND BONES?
Among the Stars and Bones is a sci-fi audio drama about xenoarchaeologists investigating alien ruins on distant worlds. Each season, the crew of The Herodotus Taskforce faces a new site with new challenges and dangers. Some of the crew have come to expand the knowledge of humanity, others to exploit and weaponise abandoned alien technology, while some hope to find answers to deeper questions.

Told through reports sent back to Earth by the mission overseer, head xenoarchaeologist, 2iC of xenobiology, head of military research and the head of technology, AtSaB is also a story of competing agendas and missions, exploration and discovery, and corporate greed. And always, always with mystery and danger lurking.

WHO IS MAKING IT?
Hi, I’m Chris Magilton, a lover of audio drama/audio fiction and science fiction. I’m also a writer and voice actor, having appeared in such podcasts as Kalila Stormfire’s Economical Magick Services, Copperheart and Mythos, and with soon to be released roles in Camarilla and Act Natural.

Together with my partner, novelist Devin Madson, I am putting together Among the Stars and Bones and other audio fiction for your ears.

We’ve put together a cast that blends people with a tonne of experience in voice acting and podcasting with some talented relative newcomers.

For more information about the cast and crew, visit www.amongthestarsandbones.com

WHERE IS THE MONEY GOING?
The first season of Among the Stars and Bones has a cast of 12 and so the main expense of producing the show is paying those actors for their work. There are other costs of course: hosting, software and sound effects, music and logo composition, but proceeds of the Patreon will go to the actors first and the production second.

Also, as we increase patrons we will hit goals that will see even more bonus content added to the behind the scenes looks and other goodies coming to your feeds.
