As May approaches (and with it, the boat holding your copies of RAW), it’s time to face facts: in not too long, the wild adventure that has been the making of RAW: A Hannibal/Will Fanthology will be coming to an end.

It will be hard, but as Hannibal fans, we’re already intimately acquainted with the difficulty of endings. Except—difficulty isn’t the only thing about endings that Hannibal taught us. When we think back on the finale, a second lesson comes to light… and it’s one that we here at Bad Influence Press have decided to take to heart.

If you’ve gotta go?
Make sure you make a splash.

Without further ado:

RAW Launch Party
May 22, 2016

The Cobra Club
6 Wyckoff Ave.
Brooklyn, NY 11237
(L Train @ Jefferson St.)

Free to attend.
Cash bar.
21+ to drink.
Black tie encouraged.

Come meet us, some of our phenomenal contributors, and your fellow fans! Drinks will be available from the venue, and we’ll be providing finger-food worthy of Hannibal himself, save for perhaps the exclusion of actual fingers. And dress to impress—it wouldn’t be a Hannibal party without a killer outfit, would it?

Also, didn’t get the chance to back the Kickstarter, or want to grab an extra copy of the book for a friend? We will have a limited number of copies of RAW for sale at the event, as well as some of the extras, including the lapel pins.

We’re so glad you all were with us on this wild ride. We couldn’t have done it without you, and we hope that you will be able to join us to celebrate: to celebrate RAW, to celebrate Hannibal, and to celebrate endings—and whatever might come after them.

All our love,
Aimee Fleck & Tea Fougner

“I love the interior and feel of this place. Its high ceilings, outdoor seating, and carefully curated interior is elegant and totally unlike most spaces found in Bushwick. The Rookery also has a great beer selection on tap.”

Send me mix cd’s¡!

I want you guys to send me physical cd’s of songs that you want to hear on the Lost at Last radio show! 

They can be your favorite artist from when you were growing up, or something that you’re listening to now that most people might not have heard of. it could be music from your native country, something with culture infused into it! it could be your own music, or your friends music. it could literally be a recording of yourself reciting a poem. or telling an interesting story.  anything worth hearing!

11237) I search fatspo on tumblr to make me feel better about myself, but most of the time I just get jealous of their confidence. This disorder has made me into such a horrible person.
