The Replatforming

What started out as a tactical move in response to a deplatforming has unexpectedly transformed into something akin to the much-requested Castalia House subscription. The November book was Corporate Cancer, the December book is Quantum Mortis: A Man Disrupted.

Supporting Castalia on Patreon is one of the very best book deals around, as $1 gets you the ebook, $3 gets you the ebook and the audiobook, and $20 gets you the ebook, the audiobook, and the paperback. We're committed to ensuring that at least one of the three editions every month will be a brand new one; in this case, although the ebook has been out for years and Marcher Lord published a hardcover, both the audiobook and the paperback are new.

We're announcing this now because the paperback will be available Monday, but if you're interested in a) supporting the replatforming and/or b) the monthly book subscription, it is available this way so you will not need to buy it separately. Keep in mind that while the ebooks and audiobooks will be downloadable starting around the middle of the month, the paperbacks will be shipped the first week of the following month.

The best way to get Vox back to writing ASoS is to demonstrate the feasibility of books as a mass communcation medium. So subscribe now.

von Moltke the Elder was all too prophetic about no battle plan surviving contact with the enemy. This benefits us and damages our adversaries and enemies, at a very low price and great value to you. Subscribe now; every new subscription means a VFM gets a new set of bones to gnaw down.

Get Timothy Zahn to cowrite it? That would be amazing.

Marcus Quintus slipped out of the demiurge's abode with a tangled skein of future possibilities enwebbing his not formerly untroubled mind.
Suddenly, an arrow TWHACKED into the wall next to him! He rolled out of the sun and into the shadow of a building. Assassins sprang out everywhere, waving scimitars!

Done. I want that series

I no longer can find the patron count or monthly pledge amount on Patreon. Was this a tactical decision?

Blogger MightyKevster December 07, 2019 8:49 PM  

Subscribed. Keep up the great work!

I see them just fine. 1,632 subscribers.

Just a short note about platforms.

I can find Big Bear stream on YOUTUBE by searching Owen Benjamin + the stream number. Also, there are still Owen comedy bits still up. It seems like all they did was de-catalog the material so it is randomized rather than deleted.

When I select My Profile I see a thumbnail of the Castalia account with the patron count and pledge$. Upon clicking on the thumbnail I'm taken to the Castalia page and have the option of two tabs: Posts and My membership. Nowhere can I find the patron count and pledge$ I was used to seeing displayed immediately under the floating Mr. Castalia head.

Come to think of it, the page display might have changed when the new QM header was added.

@Dave, click the link provided by Vox above.

I agree with Weka, I burned through all of the audio books related to it in a week. Vox really is an amazing author and I cant wait til ASoS drops.

Blogger Dave December 08, 2019 12:30 AM  

If I log out of Patreon and use either of the links in the OP, I then see Castalia's public page with patron count and pledge$. I have to login in order to see all of the posts and comments at which point I no longer see thelayout I used to. Annoying.

Blogger Kiwi December 08, 2019 12:36 AM  

Ugh, I didn't set my address to link to Castalia when I joined! New to Patron, but yeah my bad. I actually don't know if shipping to NZ is a thing. No biggie if you don't, or as us Kiwi say "She'll be right mate"

Blogger Sargent.matrim December 08, 2019 12:52 AM  

I'm happy to support this. The fact that we get a free book on top (which is how I see it) is just a bonus.

Looking forward to reading this one too.

Vox, I have noticed that watching the Darkstream at home, I have no JOIN button for the channel. At work, which VPNs through Ireland, I do. Is this your doing or Youtube's? Same login in both cases.

I joined Owen's channel because, while I didn't expect Youtube to follow through, I figured he would be a victim first. Now that he has been deplatformed there, I want to join your channel too, just in case.

Thank you Much 8^)

Blogger wreckage December 08, 2019 3:14 AM  

I went to $3 because that's some cheap audio right there.

Blogger wreckage December 08, 2019 3:16 AM  

Oh, and of course, because I was promised rivers of blood and mountains of skulls, and the crows of war, engorged to obscenity, blotting out the smoke-reddened sun.
In Minecraft.

In related de-platforming news, Sasha Baron Cohen was apparently the keynote speaker at some big ADL dinner very recently and he wants the ADL to monitor and be put in charge of too Facebook, Twitter, and You Tube - the ADL has very quickly provided their list of those that need to be removed permanently from all the various platforms and sadly, for YouTube, it lists Dr. E. Michael Jones AND Vincent James of Red Elephants, both of whom I listen to regularly. The other YT channels mentioned that ADL wants immediate removal of are TruNews, Sanderson1611 (Pastor Steven Anderson, Baptist pastor), and Brother Nathaniel (ex-Jew).

It doesn't show on mobile, especially iPhone. But most likely, it's the VPN.

I imagine the 4th medium fri a book selling: after an ebook, a hardcover and an audiobook. I would love to hear an audiobook wit SDL's voiceovers " little gamma here", "now you are banned!", "we crush" with occasional "WAAAAR" from BB. :)

Blogger Zastavnik Džemo December 08, 2019 3:41 PM  

$3 for audiobook is cheap even for eastern europe.

Pretty much, yeah. You can't really beat an ebook a month for $1.

Vox, slightly irrelevant, don't you worry that they might target you and take your blog down and lose all these posts ?
