mermaid precinct

(no subject)


The Mermaid Precinct Kickstarter has a new stretch goal: if we hit $5300, everyone who pledges $50 or more will not only get electronic copies of all thirteen previous Precinct short stories, but also e-copies of the four previous Precinct novels. So if you pledge fifty bucks (or more), you get Dragon Precinct, Unicorn Precinct, Goblin Precinct, Gryphon Precinct, and all thirteen short stories in the universe (that part was already there if you pledged $50+).

Pledge now! Only five days left!

The jokes are all incredibly unimaginative and very basic stuff. The dark-eyes-from-the-microscope thing doesn’t even make sense in the setting. (Why would there be a microscope on Spock’s console? How’d a disembodied computer even get it there?) They’re just variations on contemporary pranks, and not particularly interesting ones. Plus, there’s the completely absurd giant inflatable Enterprise decoy that the Romulans somehow don’t realize is a giant balloon until after they fire on it. I can’t even…
