About

What’s this all about?
Hello, my name’s Justin Howe. I write science fiction, fantasy, and that sort of stuff. My stories and essays have appeared in Beneath Ceaseless Skies, Reckoning, and Clarkesworld. I also maintain the website 10badhabits.com where I blather about books and other nerdy topics. Click here to check out a bibliography. I am using Patreon to support my writing. And in return for your support what will you get?

Quite simply, you will get nothing.

You get nothing
Let me explain: While in the past I’ve offered patrons an exclusive monthly column about old weird books called Yesterweird, those posts are now at 10badhabits.com. As of this moment there's no difference between supporting me and not supporting me. Oh yes, you’ll have my gratitude and thanks and emanations of good feelings in your direction, but materially? Materially, you will get nothing.

No rough drafts, no serial novels, no sneak peaks, no discords, no podcasts, no sub stack coupons, no forums, no vlogs, no postcards, etc.

Nothing.

At least for now.

Justin, are you sure you know how patreon works?
Right now, your support will go towards a blog anyone can read for free. Yes, it will also go towards works in progress, but there’s no guarantee anyone will ever see those. My reason for doing this is that I don't want to take up your time.

Would you like to hear about a novel that might never be published? Would you like me promise a self-pubbed RPG that never materializes? I don't want to make any promises I can't keep. What I can guarantee is a blog post about an old book, once a month, and various other assorted book club like activities. For 2020, the plan’s to do a read along of Alberto Manguel's Black Water anthology of fantastic literature.

The Tiers of Nothing
  1. 1USD - Welcome Aboard! You get nothing and over the course of the year you buy me two coffee-shop beverages.
  2. 3USD - A Place of Repose: You get nothing and over the course of the year you buy me a dinner and a few beers.
  3. 5USD - In the Thick of It: You get nothing and over the course of the year you pay one of my bills. Why are you doing this?
  4. 10USD - A Fine Mess: You get nothing and over the course of the year you buy me a round-trip high-speed train ticket from Busan to Seoul. We can’t go on living like this. If we ever meet I am going to talk to you about lowering your pledge.
  5. All other pledge amounts: You get nothing and I leave it up to your imagination to fill in the details by multiplying your pledge amount by twelve and then thinking of something you'd buy with that amount.
And I know this all sounds very flippant, but I know if I promise you nothing I won't disappoint you.
Goals
7 of 10 patrons
The conquest begins!

Or not.

Either way I appreciate the support! With 10 patrons I'll track down some locally available weird snack and write an exclusive review of it. Maybe I'll even record myself eating it and post the video here.
