A major milestone!

Hello everyone, 

We are finally here with the update we—and we hope you⁠—have all been waiting for: the books have gone to the printers! It took us a bit longer than expected to finish them, but taking more time also has also brought more to the books: they are bigger, better, and packed with even more fascinating ephemera than originally planned. We are sure you'll find the books worth the wait, and we thank you so much for your patience⁠—we really wanted to make them perfect for you.

Due to widespread paper shortages and ongoing global shipping delays, we are unable to give a precise revised delivery estimate right now, but as soon as we have one, we will share it with all of you. In the meantime, keep an eye out for updates from us with your audio rewards, some bonus audio content, and some exciting news about NecronomiCon. HPLHS will, of course, be right in the thick of everything in Providence this August, but Helios will be there too, and we're working on some fun treats for those of you who might  be attending. Below are a few more mock-ups of some of the extra content we've included, including a whole new section title 'Elucidations, containing more of Sean & Andrew's fascinating insights into references in HPL's letters. 

We can't wait to share more with you in the coming months! 

Warmest regards, 

HPLHS & Helios House

We're getting close!

BackerKit Survey Reminder and a Little Behind-the-Scenes Look at Another Original Art Piece
6 months ago – Sat, Jan 01, 2022 at 03:35:38 AM

Happy new year, everyone! It's almost 2022 - the year when we get to put these books and all of their associated goodies in your hands. 

We are reaching out to remind you to complete your BackerKit survey if you have not already done so - 89% of you have! - to let us know where to send your books and other rewards and to add on any additional items you might want. Remember: the orders lock on January 12, so you only have a couple more weeks to get those in! Check your email for the survey link from BackerKit.

And speaking of those add-ons, we are just three orders away from being able to produce the art print of 'The Black Temple of Tsathoggua at Au-bhun' by Ivan Sandoval that was the focus of our last update, so if you've been thinking about it, you can help us get there by adding it on now! 

We are also now nine orders away from being able to produce a poster of artist Andy Morris's DeLand Travel Poster design, which will not be printed on some tissue-thin throw-away stock but on a paper stock and in a style reminiscent of a real travel poster of the era. We wanted to share some images of this piece, commissioned for Vol. I Book 2 of Miskatonic Missives. Below you can see the image at the pencil stage as well as the final product. We are thrilled to be able to include this piece in the book and would love to produce the poster as well. 

Thank you as always for all of your support, and we look forward to getting everything out to you in the new year. 

Warm Regards, 

HPLHS & Helios House
