Good news. Some of you already know Mystik Waboose. She travels the Convention circuit and sells cool shirts. She wanted to do a Combat Wombat shirt from the worlds of Tom Stranger. I agreed. My share of the royalties on these are being donated to charity. Specifically, Operation Baen Bulk, so I can help pay the shipping on sending care packages to the troops stationed in Iraq and Afghanistan. So this shirt is both awesome, and for a good cause. I’ve cut and pasted Mystik’s message from Facebook below with the details:
Hi, The Combat Wombat shirt has just been released vor Pre Order. We will send the shirt to the printer on October 1st. We hope to be sending them out to arrive at the same time as Larry’s second release from Baen Books in his M.H.I. Saga, “Vendetta”.
The logo is a bold 11 inches from side to side and top to bottom.
Peop…le who Pre Order will be able to have a slogan added to the back. “Now With 70% More Wombat!” for no aditional charge. After Oct 1st the logo will only be available as a Special Order and will cost $5 more.

This is a Mystik Waboose Design with the original concept and artwork done by Rob Allen.
Larry Corriea is donating his royalties to Operation Baen Bulk to pay for shipping supplies to troops overseas.
I just tried the link to Mystik’s webpage and it seems to be down, but you can find her on FB at http://www.facebook.com/pages/Mystik-Waboose-Clothier/109151045780060?v=info&ref=mf#!/pages/Mystik-Waboose-Clothier/109151045780060?v=wall&ref=mf
EDIT: If you want to contact Mystik directly, e-mail her at: firstname.lastname@example.org and put COMBAT WOMBAT in the header.
In related news: I’ve got several hundred copies of MHV coming my way shoon to sign, and I’ll be sending them to the bookstore mentioned in the last post. I’ll post all of their contact information and an ordering link next week.
Also coming next week, I’m doing something else for charity. This time to help the daughter of a local who is need of a kidney transplant. I’m auctioning off red-shirts. i.e. you donate $50 to this charity, and I’ll take your name and use it in an upcoming novel. I can’t promise how you’ll die, but I can promise that you probably will. The body count in Monster Hunter Alpha is rather steep. (well, not Ringo-steep, but the events of MHA aren’t a good time to live in Northern Michigan) :) Details coming next week, and I’ll steer you directly to the charity.
