New W. A. Dwiggins book! Athalinthia stories and pictures

Created by Bruce Kennett

The personal side of Dwiggins. Cool stories, published together for the first time. Tons of never-before-seen art, much in color.

Latest Updates from Our Project:

T-shirts and Deluxes
almost 2 years ago – Tue, Jul 26, 2022 at 06:06:17 PM

Greetings All,

T-SHIRTS  I’ve had some requests for additional sizes on the T-shirts. I checked with the printer and he can do this. So T-shirts are now available from XS (extra small) in both ladies cut and unisex, up to XL in ladies cut and XXL in unisex. If you didn’t see your size earlier, please go back and have a look. Also, I got size charts from the printer and have put both of those into the image gallery.

DELUXES  Some of the series II deluxes are still available. For those of you who wish to upgrade your pledge from a standard copy of the book to a copy of the series II deluxe, please get in touch with the BackerKit customer support people to make this changeover. Just click on the CONTACT US link in the survey and ask them for assistance. (If you select a deluxe in the survey menu it will be classed as an add-on, which means you will get two copies of the book: one deluxe and one standard, and that’s not what most people want.)

Thanks, Bruce

Hello Everyone,

Late next week, you’ll receive an email from me with a special link to your BackerKit survey. BackerKit recommends that I wait two full weeks after the campaign has ended before sending out surveys, so you’ll see yours sometime after July 20th. 

It’s important to respond to your survey as quickly as you can since I'll need this information to fulfill your rewards.

You don’t need to create a BackerKit account to fill out your survey. When you receive the email with the survey, click the survey link to respond. Answer the questions about your reward preferences,  provide shipping information, and purchase add-on items if you like. Just to repeat, you don’t have access to this survey link yet — it will be emailed to you late next week.

After you respond to your survey, you can go back later and change your responses at any time before we close the surveys and get our final counts.

If you need to review your information or pledge status, you can return to your survey by clicking the link in your survey email or requesting your survey link under "Lost your survey?" on our BackerKit  project page at

If you used your Facebook credentials to log in to your Kickstarter account, the BackerKit survey is sent to the email address you use for your Facebook account. If you have another email address that you prefer to use, please contact support at

Please remember that I am one person handling all this on the project end, and I'm doing it for the first time. Setting up the BackerKit page and on-line pre-order store were (for me) akin to being plunked down in the pilot's seat of a commercial jet and told, “There are all the dials and controls, now take off.” Luckily I had very good customer support from BackerKit. But if there is some error in the way things are set up, please be in touch to point that out and we'll correct it as quickly as we can.

Finally . . . in the back matter of the book I am listing the names of the supporters who made this project possible. The Kickstarter backer report lists some of you only as “s” or “ATB” or “Ilovecheerios” so I'll obviously need something more traditional than that for the names listing. I have already had a request from one backer that I put a different name in that list, and I'm happy to accommodate that. Perhaps the easiest is for you to say "List me in the credits as Givenname Surname" if there is a logical place in the survey for you to do that. I'll be listing everyone alphabetically by surname. (And remember to check your note carefully for typos!!!)

Thank you for your patience with all of this, and for making this beautiful book possible.
