Additional Update (This is being emailed to PPP Customers & Fans)
"Pied Piper Publishing and Noble Knight Games are pleased to announce the availability of Mr. Kuntz's first published novella - Black Festival! Black Festival is a 36 page"chapbook" available for the low price of only $9.95. It tells the tale of the Barbarian Frank, Wolfar, who dominates this novella of 20,000+ words along with his off-and-on companion the rogue, Thekela. It is written in the style of Gardner Fox's and REH's Kyrik and Conan tales. It also includes several full page interior acrylic illustrations by Eric Bergeron.
To make the release of this product even more special and to reward our most devoted supporters, preorders will receive one of the following:
This product is a 1st printing, limited edition of only 150, signed and numbered by Mr. Robert Kuntz. Aaron Leeder, owner of Noble Knight Games, has witnessed the signing in house here at our location in Janesville, WI. The first 20 copies are signed in red ink with the remaining 130 signed in black.
Mr. Kuntz has also generously offered to include in the mix five AUTHOR copies! These author copies are part of a limited edition of only 15 (fifteen), all hand signed and numbered in gold ink and featuring the official Lord of the Green Dragons seal!! Past author copies of PPP products have commanded over $100, each, and have never before been generally available!
PREORDERS PLACED ON WED FEBRUARY 17TH FROM 12PM TO 12AM CST ELIGIBLE FOR RANDOM DRAWING FOR LOWEST NUMBERS
In the past PPP products have been available first come, first served. With this product we are trying a new way of disbursing the orders, a drawing (held in house) will decide the lucky winners of the earliest numbered copies and the 5 very special author copies! In order to be eligible, you must order on the first day of preorder availability, Wednesday, February 17th, from 12pm to 12am CST. The product will then ship out Thursday, February 18th. If you're wondering why we are doing it this way, this gives everyone preordering an equal shot at getting the earliest most collectible numbers, and a shot at one of the 5 author copies, and prevents one person from gobbling up the first 5 issues at once. Also, some like to combine other items with the purchase to minimize their shipping costs. This isn't possible when "racing" to checkout. We will assume that everyone ordering would like an authors copy or the earliest remaining number possible, depending on the number they draw. All the authors copies and the lowest #'s will be mailed out to preorders! We will notify anyone preordering of the number(s) they will receive.
At any rate, you're guaranteed a copy of the limited edition 1st printing and a great afternoon read!!!! :)
ORDERING MORE THEN ONE COPY
You can preorder more then 1 copy if you wish to receive additional entries, limit 5 copies per order.
