As reported on Equestria Daily, efforts are apparently made to create a hardcover edition of Past Sins (one of the best-known MLP:FiM fanfics, and perhaps one of the best, too)! There's a pledge on PledgeBank; it initially closed on the 31st of May, but as the creator points out, it will be opened again soon: "I screwed up with the pledge. Apparently AT THE MOMENT it isn't possible to sign it. Please wait a few hours, we will expand the deadline!".
So, what will you get? Their Etherpad instance has all the details:
Well, what’s the deal?
- 1 author
- 4 people in the core team
- 2 artists
- 15 proof-readers
And what can you expect?
- A hardcover with ~800 pages
- A professionally designed cover and layout
- The best fanart existing for Past Sins (in b/w)
- An unreleased short from Pen Stroke
- And of course Past Sins in all its glory :)
What’s the price?
- The book itself will cost ~20€, depending on the number of people who want one
- Shipping will be calculated based on the country you live in
- We make no profit of this
So, want a hardcover copy of Past Sins? Just wait until the pledge's open again (it's not yet, despite a few hours having passed already) and sign up for it.
