Some cool perks, including some authors who will review your story, or write your into one of their shorts.

Also, there's about 10 lettered editions left.

Shipping sucks, but that's life. International book shipping is expensive as hell. Their prices are reasonable. Unfortunately high, but reasonable.

Also, this topic might should be in General Misc or Literature, as its mroe specifically about the anthology itself rather than bakker's story within. Just thoughts. Seems it was moved.

Just 1 lettered edition left. All gone!

It's costing more to ship the book than it does for me to get TGO sent by express courier from Canada.

I might just donate some Aussie Dollars since the exchange rate is favourable to me, then buy the book independently when it comes out. Probably work out cheaper.

It might not be any cheaper for shipping later. This is why publisher have UK and/or European publishers, and US publishers, because shipping sucks.

Campaign is looking strong so far, I'm excited. Favorable exchange rate is a nice plus :), even better for you I think

Its sitting right at 75% right now. With all the big perks gone it may be a bit of a slog to get to 100%. Seems that most people are either going ebook or Hardback, which averages at about $30 per backer. So, to get fully funded, that means they need about 165 more backers. Put another way, that means they need about 30% more of about 450 total.

450 backers is past the 2nd stretch goal, so my guess is that if this gets funded, then backers will get the first 4 GdM publications free, as well as the additional Novella and Novelette by Matthew Ward

I just donated $12, ebook is all I need.

I will strike down those who speak your name or the name of your fathers, until ‘Yursalka’ becomes as meaningless as infant babble. I will blot you out, hunt down your every trace!

Well the money doesn't come out my account until it does get fully funded, correct?

Correct. You can change your pledge up until the day the kickstarter ends, which is July 14th. No charges are made before its over.

If it doesnt reach its goal, no one gets charged anything. No books are made, and another Bakker short gets lots to the void.

I might throw in a little more if it looks like they might not make the goal. I doubt that though. I think they'll make it.

Apparently, getting the whole first year of GdM was a 350 backer milestone, which then includes The Knife of Many Hands in addition to the new Atrocity Tale in the anthology - incentive for anyone who has not yet read KOMH.

I haven't even backed yet, I am a chronic-late-backer historically.  I'll get around to it before it ends though.
“I am a warrior of ages, Anasűrimbor . . . ages. I have dipped my nimil in a thousand hearts. I have ridden both against and for the No-God in the great wars that authored this wilderness. I have scaled the ramparts of great Golgotterath, watched the hearts of High Kings break for fury.” -Cet’ingira
