For $5, you get everything at the $1 dollar level - your own devil from The Lesser Key of Solomon. Along with this introduction to devils, you'll also receive a copy of our little festive monster catalogue in your choice of epub or PDF format - as well as entitlement to subsequent years of additional festive monster entries for the rest of your life!*
In addition, you'll also get your own hand-drawn postcard decorated with a crude approximation of a very famous small black cat and your own magical protection sigil based on themes you suggest!
* or until I stop writing them, let's be realistic, there are only so many festive monsters in the world!
For $10, you get everything listed above at the former levels, whilst also ensuring your procurement of each new issue of Planet Claire in fanzine format - and each successive fanzine project - until the day your soul departs its earthly abode!
The Esther Greenwood School for Girls is about language and our use of it, old and new. It is about our history viewed as inherently queer, a succession of opinions about pop culture viewed through the lens of disidentification. Our curriculum focuses on the contrast of modernity and absurdity, our passion being that of history-as-narrative and the secular retelling of significant events in our school calendar. We are committed to the highest standards of excellence, and, should you chuse to join us within our impressive school grounds in a bubble universe circa 1915, we hope that you will be richly engaged with the manner of stories and irreverent reportage we excel at.
Producing a nameless school fanzine according to an erratic schedule, you will find our headmistress suffers from what might be termed "a Jewish work ethic," and is thus incapable of doing anything but writing ceaselessly. It may be said that we overproduce. You may regret this.
Please consider booking your place one of our open days and enrolling with us here. The school bell is ringing. If you rush you can still make the bus.
This was how she imagined her day would progress:
In ten minutes the alarm would go off and she would be reminded that it was Monday morning.
Planet Claire is the story of a woman who wakes one morning and finds her home in West London slipping off the edge of the abyss: it is a story about the living and the dead, and the localised effects of a magic that has locked out Britain's premiere semi-official occult agency from a vast swath of the city.
Stand by for zombies, for freelance magicians, for action and adventure, and the ethics of killing to eat.
Spanning twelve issues, the series will be exclusive to patreon subscribers and your money will be used to ensure each print run will be numerous enough to accommodate you all and to allow for collaboration with other artists and writers in new and exciting ways.
