Steampunk fans, rejoice! Back by popular demand, the creators of Boston Metaphysical Society have returned to Kickstarter to fund the print version of the sci-fi, action/adventure series’ third issue. Series creator Madeleine Holly-Rosing is hoping to raise $3,000 to cover the printing costs of Issue #3, as well as the costs for the campaign’s incentives, shipping, postage, and fees. Having already surpassed the Kickstarter funding goal, your support could mean the attainment of BMS‘ stretch goal: the printing of Issue #4!
The story of Boston Metaphysical Society is set in the year 1895. An evil from a parallel dimension escaped and now roams the city of Boston. The world has developed along the lines of Steampunk technology, with steam-driven, rudimentary computers and electronics, and dirigibles ruling the sky. With it comes social and political upheaval, as not everyone is comfortable with change. In fact, many people fear it. That fear, and the violence that followed, caused a psychic rift to puncture the veil of space and time allowing the entity known as “The Shifter” to escape. Feeding on the resentment and fear between the rich and poor, “The Shifter” triggers a rash of murders. When great minds like Alexander Graham Bell, Nikola Tesla, Thomas Edison, and Harry Houdini fail to stop “The Shifter,” only the Boston Metaphysical Society can come to the rescue against the malevolent force!
