It looks like Professor Beej‘s Birthright novel’s Kickstarter project has reached its funding goal. Of course, while there’s momentum, the good Professor has extended a new mini-goal to pay for some more sweet cover art.
If you haven’t investigated Birthright yet, it’s a perfect time to do so. Professor Beej wrote this article on it a while back, and he has other commentary over at his site.
For what it’s worth, I chipped in on the Kickstarter, but even before that, Beej let me read a bit of his earlier draft for the book. While I didn’t have much time to read it, I was left itching for more. It’s interesting, well written, and is curiously founded on a conceptual conceit distilled directly from games. I’m really looking forward to the final book and whatever else Beej winds up doing with his pocket universe(s).
