Just in case you haven't spotted it: these books are being offered via Kickstarter not traditional publishing. So enough people must sign up or no books, no special discounts and there's no guarantee of general sales release aftre the Kickstarter (likely to be fixed print run).

No, they are 100 per cent official, of course!

All details will be revealed soon.
Crowdfunding - Yes. Kickstarter - No (where have you spotted it??)
In any event, no books is not at option in this case on account of the initial investment already made :)

i've seen unofficial ken reid Frankie Stien books on ebay before way out of my price rangebut i meant unofficial in the sense its not rebellion or a company that owns the rights publishing it.but i suppose he could be going the hibernia route but obvs gonna be more expensive as these are lovely hardback and with forewards.But i hope these are a huge success and the start of many more classics to come.

what is the difference between crowd funding and kickstarter.i done the Striker sub through kickstarter and will definitely want these maybe even 2 if they are on sale for quite a while. 1 set as a birthday pressie for my brother.

I'd say crowdfunding is the activity, the 'thing' you are doing - basically getting money from people (you don't know)

whereas Kickstarter is a means of enabling your crowdfunding to take place (as is gofundme or indiegogo)

In other terms, crowdfunding = driving, while Kickstarter = car :)
