A word on supporting Bone and Sickle via Patreon.
What your donations help me accomplish…
I don’t want to make a podcast like any other. I want it to be transportive, immersive, and glutted with all the ghoulish detail it deserves, and that’s what your equally lavish generosity accomplishes.
Your donations help keep me on track. Practically, of course, they keep me from losing too many hours to work that is strictly about money, but more importantly, they tell me that – odd as it may seem — people genuinely appreciate the work I’m doing and that they want more of it.
And for god’s sake, I need to pay Wilkinson! Or was it Mr. Galiher? In any case, there lies some great debt that must be undone. He has such a lovely voice and is so generous with this time. Lord knows, the poor fellow has suffered enough. If not for me, please, please, think of Wilkinson.
What Patrons can receive…
FOOTNOTES OF THE DAMNED Unlock access to my patron-only posts on the Patreon site. These include extra written material that didn’t make it into the show, original text and links to additional sites, videos, or music mentioned in the post or relevant to recent shows. (Weekly or monthly)
WILKINSON THE BUTLER GLAMOR SHOT
A high resolution photograph of Wilkinson the Butler with signature. Suitable for printing, framing, and fawning.
FOLKLORE/HORROR TOME A carefully selected volume from decades (centuries?) gone by. These are not digital texts, but typically full color PDF scans of a rare book retaining all of their bibliophilic allure. Gold embossed calfskin covers, musty marbled end papers, curious illustrations, and antique typesetting on aged paper could be expected.
READINGS FROM THE LIBRARY Readings from folklore or horror texts like those referenced in the show. Most recordings are roughly 20-40 minutes (1 book chapter) and are given the “Bone and Sickle treatment,” that is a bit of ambient soundscaping to enhance their often ominous nature.
BONE AND SICKLE SOUNDSCAPE Narration for each episode is removed allowing you to enjoy the rich, wall-to-wall soundscaping consisting of original music woven around ambient sounds, drones, effects, and snippets from films, old records, or other recordings. Make up your own narration!
KRAMPUS BOOK My “gleefully erudite” survey of Krampus lore and history that’s been called “the definitive book on Krampus. Hundreds of pictures! Mailed after 3 months continuous patronage.
BONE & SICKLE MYSTERY RITE KIT Everything you will need for your magical self-initiation into this Highest Level of Bone and Sickle Patronage. Includes ritual instructions, handsome customized candle, and other implements including special “Contemplation Star” woven from actual magnetic tape used in the production of podcast episodes! Mailed after 3 months continuous patronage.
