Thanks to the support of so many generous readers, our successful project on kickstarter has brought something new into this world. Perhaps something sinister and terrifying, as well. The Fridge of the Damned magnetic word tile set! These “poetry magnets” have been manufactured by US Magnetix and all 210 pounds of them have been delivered to my publisher, Raw Dog Screaming Press, who will be working with Nathan Rosen at microhorror.com to distribute these and the myriad rewards that are going out in the first few weeks of March in appreciation to those who helped fund this project. (You might be wondering how to get your hands on these… I believe extra tins of the Fridge magnets from the manufacturing run will no doubt be available for sale online and at conventions from RDSP soon.)
If you backed this project, I’d love for you to share a photo of any weird poem you create. I’ll add it to the gallery.
The initial photos I received look wonderful, and I’m very excited to start messing with them on sticky surfaces everywhere. Sure, it’s a novelty item, but I think it’s really neat! I’ve been posting reward production updates to the Fridge’s Flickr gallery, if you’re interested in peeking behind the Fridge. And in case you missed it, I’ve posted a recap of this event from last January here.
Update: The Fridge of the Damned is now offered for sale for $12 each by Raw Dog Screaming Press, while supplies last.
