Title: Attn: ALL HOLY NONSENSE AUTHORS
Post by: Q. G. Pennyworth on July 10, 2017, 03:27:23 am
I would like to launch a patreon to subsidize my work on Holy Nonsense and the flyers, QGP art, and related stuff and nonsense I get up to. Nothing is going behind a paywall. I'll still be releasing Holy Nonsense on PeeDee and distributing things as far and wide as possible, and patrons won't get to dictate anything getting into the book. The only difference would be that I get slightly less shit for doing this instead of taking work on fiver or whatever.

In the unlikely event that I get filthy rich on this, money will be thrown at PD costs and other causes the contributors request.

I think this is still within the non-commercial license all HN authors agreed to, but I would feel better if folks chime in and let me know if this is okay.

This is not live yet, but here's a preview of what I would be asking and offering.

Please note nobody on PD has to sign up to ask for flyers and shit.

Sounds like a good idea to me.

I like the write-up and reward by custom images support tiers. I have a feeling that this will do well indeed!

I don't think I have anything in Holy Nonsense, but if so, it's kopyleft.

I don't think I have anything in Holy Nonsense, but if so, it's kopyleft.

I have Cabbages and Greyfaces, Dear Muddy, and Give You The Beeps all listed as yours in my spreadsheet. The first two are credited on the page, the latter was kind of a throwaway line and is not credited.

Can't remember if anything of mine is in there, but I'm cool with this.

The only thing I have listed as yours is Tucson is Lost, which is not credited on page.


I did the best I could to match up stuff with original authors, but a lot of these were never credited in the books they appeared in (BIP was a major contributor to this problem). If anyone wants to help match up essays to authors I have a stupid google spreadsheet you can be horrified at.

Having spoken individually to Nigel and Roger as well, I'm gonna call this critical mass. If you wrote stuff and have a problem, please let me know here or on the bookface or whatever and I will leave out your material.

I don't know if that was a request for the spreadsheet, but here it is:

I'm not sure if any of mine has been used or is being looked at being used in the future, but if it is, either this site or Medecins Sans Frontieres are acceptable causes.

Hearts and Minds is the only one of yours I have credited,  no idea if you did some of the BIP or other uncredited K work I dug up. I'll make a note of kicking money at MSF when there's enough to kick around.

I have never had any expectation that my Discordian writings would be lucrative. In the event that they are, you can buy me an expensive Scotch to share with you to celebrate success.

We'll bring LMNO in on the celebration too
