Viking Amoeba Army

Listeners might recall that Shaun will occasionally ask authors to draw a viking amoeba inside specially signed copies of their books.  To date, three authors have done so.

Joining the army is easy.  If you are an SF/F author, graphic novelist, or artist and would like to be included (both in the show and in the army), send us an email at skiffyandfanty[at]gmail[dot]com and let us know!   We’ll get back to you as soon as we can.  It’s that easy.
