"The Devil and Daniel Boone" Valentine's Day giveaway!

It's a new JSH Book Club giveaway!

On Valentine's Day, a lucky winner's name will be drawn to win a FREE copy of the print edition of The Devil and Daniel Boone, the first of the neverending series of peculiar pulp-fiction lowbrow literature-objects.

As with last month's Moleskin Checklist giveaway, all you have to do to enter is send a DM (direct message) via Twitter to either @catclawtheatre, @jshbookclub, @telecrylic or @schachtons.

This edition is already destined to be a collector's item as all JSH Amazon/CreateSpace books will eventually be replaced with in-house hardcover versions.

If you already entered in the Moleskin Checklist drawing, your name will automatically remain in the hat for this one!

New JSH Book Club Merchandise

An entry from the JSH Florida blog Report from the Florida Zone:

Hey, kids, break open those piggy banks! There's a whole raft of new JSH merchandise available, and much, more coming on the way!

The one I'm most excited about is the set of The Bartender poker chips. You could stock up on these and play an actual game with this handsome poker chip created by Chip Lab in Tampa, Florida, but we prefer to think of them as currency for the next civilization, or one of those "commemorative minted medallions" you used to see on TV offers. Display them in your man cave as an Objet d'art, have one matted and mounted as one would a rare coin, put them away in your safety deposit box for hard times, or keep one in your pocket as a good luck charm when you hit the casino or strip club. This limited edition chip is anointed with J. T. Dockery's striking artwork for the book's cover, and is sure to increase in value over time.

Then we're offering playing cards bearing that same Dockery cover art. You can play some high-stakes poker with them (using, of course, our Bartender poker chips), treasure a framed one in a place of reverie and contemplation as one would holy icons, perform acts of divination with them as if they were Tarot cards, or invent your own Pokémon/Magic Cards style game utilizing them.

Then there's the Toulouse-inations travel mug, bearing the graphics for the original stage production's theatrical poster:

And the Toulouse-inations t-shirts, available in both "men's" style and "women's" slim cut:

Like my good friend Gene Simmons of KISS, I'm an unabashed fan of over-the-top merchandising and marketing. As the great man himself once said, voicing disregard for the portions of his fan base who disapprove of aggressive salesmanship and showmanship: "I think it's cool to see my face on a lunchbox. It's fun. I'm doing this for me. You don't have to buy one."

If you buy any of this stuff, contact me and I'll reward your diligence to the cause to which we are all so devoted, by gifting you a FREE JSH Book Club e-book of your own choosing! (Send me a pic of yourself holding said item and I'll even tweet about what a High Grand Super-Double-Titanium Meritorious monster you are!)

Hundred Dollar Word Hoard

The JSH Book Club is now a genuine book club! Send $100.00 and you'll receive, each month for a year, a different slab of slop from the swamp! If you already own some of these fine deathless works of intergalactic literature, just let us know and we'll be sure to omit them from your schedule of twelve volumes.

This offer only applies to the print editions of the books at the present time. Since the average JSH paperback retails for around $12.99, the book club membership therefore offers you an amazing savings of.... um... of... well, whatever, you do the math. But it's worth it. And when Wakeling & Harbour unveil the line of hardcover editions later this year, you'll have the option of switching over to those if you prefer - which will be an even greater deal!
