If you don't receive your fiction, or suspect that something may be wrong, don't hesitate to contact me directly, and I'll make sure that you get what is rightfully yours. I'm at the mercy of the post office, and while most undelivered mail eventually finds its way back to me, given the sheer volume of envelopes I'm sending each month, one or two are bound to end up lost in the Super-Sargasso Sea. If that looks like it's happened to or is currently happening to you, let me know, and I'll help in any way I can. I want to make sure that the Cryptofiction program is an excellent experience for everyone who chooses to participate.

Once per month, I write one short work of fiction in secret. Those who have subscribed by midnight (PST) on the first of that month receive a physical copy of that piece mailed to their address, personally signed by me, and marked with the number of official copies submitted into circulation. This is the one and only time that this story will ever be available.

If you're not on the list when the time comes, you'll miss the opportunity to receive that month's cryptofiction forever.

Works of fiction produced in this manner will never again be printed by me, or legally published in any capacity until after my death. While I cannot prevent the possibility of posthumous publication of these tales, I condemn it, and anyone who does so risks the curse of my phantom.

The following restrictions apply:

1. No more than one-thousand people will be allowed to subscribe at any given time.

2. Official copies destroyed or lost by their recipients will not be replaced.

3. Official copies lost in transit will be replaced, and marked as reprints.

4. I reserve the right to terminate the subscription of anyone who plagiarizes my work or produces facsimiles without my authorization. If you feel that you have a legitimate reason to generate a copy, please contact me first to avoid the possibility of termination.


I do not foresee the last of these restrictions needing to be enforced any time soon, as I trust that anyone willing to invest in cryptofiction is interested in their copies being personal. Regardless, there will be occasional steganographic measures employed as a precaution. Those who have received the official copies are welcome to do whatever they wish with them, whether that be to hide them in a vault, to share them with their family, or even to burn them after reading.

Goals
$619 of $1,200 per month
I will begin a process of deep cleaning on the site's structure, adding links to increase the readability of North of Reality as a single entity. Each story's permalink page will feature a section beneath it with links to three or four cousins based on their subject matter, making the website easier to explore. I will also begin recording audio collections of tales on a monthly basis to be released as a podcast.
