About Andrew Kozma

My goal with this Patreon is to write, for an audience, that audience being you.

(Yes, you.)

In particular, I want to send you mail, in the form of postcards, that are strange and weird and nonsensical and loosely-tied to the images on the postcard, but are always unique and often fanciful and occasionally horrifying. Okay, maybe more than occasionally.

I start with a fragment of a figment and hope that fragment can be coerced into an entire plot, or as much of a plot as can fit onto a 4"X6" piece of card. At the most basic level of support (basic in terms of money and tier, but not in terms of your importance), you will have one postcard sent to your email inbox every weekday. At the next tier, you will receive those digital postcards as well as one unique physical postcard mailed to your non-email inbox every month. And that's it for the tiers: it's all postcards, all the time.

These flash fictions are often explorations that are weird, a hybrid of situations found in literary stories but in worlds where anything can and often does happen. And by literary I mean low-key in the way many literary magazine stories inhabit the smallest moments of a person’s life where, objectively, nothing happens except, perhaps, in the main character’s mind. A man who’s had his head replaced waits in line for his turn to die and be reborn. Friends explore a hotel in the city that seems to be on the edge of another dimension. (In many ways, Robert Aickman is my model here—he’s a great writer and I recommend him highly for the uncanny and unsettling.)

If all of that sounds enticing, you can find examples of the postcards from the two public ones I release each month. And if you join, there is additional writing you'll gain access to, including short stories and most of a serialized novel.

At base, what I'm offering is a chance to take part in an experiment. If the above sounds interesting to you, please sign up. I'm confident you'll enjoy the ride.

Goals
$149.57 of $250 per month
At reaching this goal, every month I will audioify one of the stories or chapters (i.e., from THE SOLAR REEF) from my back catalog. Also, I will reveal that I apparently have a catalog. It's an annual and filled with everything you need for your home or office.
