About Howard Cruse

Guess what? I’m entering my “golden years” now and the Internet has successfully steamrolled most of my freelance print clients into the dust.

Which brings me to Patreon. I need patrons who like the stuff that I’ve already done (Stuck Rubber BabyWendelBarefootz; etc., plus the assorted writing projects I've undertaken during my nearly fifty years as a professional) and would like help me continue being uninhibitedly creative. That'll be possible if you join my existing patrons in alloting the modest amounts of money from your coffers that can put my projects on a solid footing.

In other words, this Patreon experiment in monthly crowdfunding will only work for me if I get more regular infusions of income than are on the horizon right now. If enough of you become patrons, it won't drain your individual bank accounts that much but will collectively make interesting new Howard Cruse projects more possible — and garner some cool rewards for yourself along with my gratitude.
