Welcome Back RiffTrax Live-ers for the 10th Time!

Greetings RiffTraxians and Doctor Who fans! If you're here tonight, it most likely means you indulged in the digital goodies section of RiffTrax Live: Doctor Who, The Five Doctors! If not, there's an encore performance on August 24.

If you liked the show and enjoyed the comics in the digital goodies, be sure to check out the Storybook series in it's entirety! You can read all chapters for free here on SugarRayDodge.com, or you can buy physical and digital copies using the links immediately to the right of this post!

You can also order 2017 autographed special editions of these books if that's your thing. Last day to order them is 8/31/17, to keep them special, you see. This is also the only chance you'll have to order hardcover editions, as they are not available during any other time. All special editions purchased in August ship in September, and don't worry if you placed a pre-order for August delivery, those will be in your hands very, very soon.

This is the 10th RiffTrax Live show I have contributed to, it means a lot and I am always very grateful.

Mystery Science Storybook Series Grand Re-Launch! Volume 3 is out and Volumes 1 & 2 are BACK IN PRINT!


It has been a very long and emotional journey this past year, filled with some highs and some very low, lows, but at the end of the day it has all been worth it because MYSTERY SCIENCE STORYBOOK Volumes 1 & 2 are BACK IN PRINT, and Volume 3 is AVAILABLE FOR IMMEDIATE PURCHASE!

Without getting into all the details, the Mystery Science Storybook series, which takes bad movies made famous by Mystery Science Theater 3000, RiffTrax and others, and reimagines them as parody bedtime stories, was forced out of print last year due to erroneous copyright infringement claims. After much heartache and conflict, the situation has been resolved the best is can be without going to court, and the series is available for purchase once again, this time with a brand new third volume! To celebrate the series' return, we are offering several purchase options. 


The first, obviously, will be on the Amazon Kindle. Volume 3 and Volume 2 are available as standalone titles for $3.99 each. Unfortunately, because of the accusations raised by the erroneous copyright claim, Volume 1 is still not allowed to be sold on Amazon.com as a standalone. To counter this, however, we have made a combined version of Volumes 1 & 2 available as an Amazon exclusive for $5.99, saving you two dollars if you had bought each of those volumes separately!

But you can also get both Kindle AND PDF files for each of the three volumes on Gumroad.com! Same low price as Amazon, but you get BOTH Kindle and PDF files, enabling you to read all three volumes on any device you wish! 

Then, of course, we have the standard full color paperback editions available for all three volumes for only $15 each! But we also have 2017 special autographed editions available for purchase until August 30, 2017! Special edition autographed hardcovers are $40 each and special edition autographed paperbacks are $20. This will be your only chance this year to get hardcover copies of any of these books this because, as always, standard hardcover edition will not be offered to keep the special editions special. These special editions will ship in September 2017! All pre-orders for August are still scheduled to ship on time! 

Place your orders below! This has been a long time coming and I can't thank everybody enough for sticking by and believing me during the past year, I'll never forget it. Now marks a new day for this project, one where we can move on without fear and keep this crazy dream alive! Thanks again from the bottom of my heart! Onward!

Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Storybook (Volume 3)
Amazon Kindle - $3.99
Paperback - $15.00

Night of the Living Storybook (Volume 2)

Take a Stand Against Bullying and Censorship! Show Support for Rick Harper and #RoomFullofSpoons


Ladies and gentlemen, censorship via bullying is a very real problem these days. If somebody doesn't like what somebody else is saying or trying to say, all they have to do use bully tactics that are extremely difficult to combat and it's almost impossible to regain any momentum you had, and you are even afraid to speak out against the person who did it out of fear they will do it again.  My recent experience with Birdemic director James Nguyen proved to me that losing your rightful freedom of expression and, in turn, your emotional and financial well being, is something you absolutely do not want happening to you.



Rick Harper has created an amazing documentary called Room Full of Spoons about the making of the cult movie The Room, and the long guarded background of it's creator, Tommy Wiseau. Since the project's inception, it has been plagued with bully and legal tactics to keep him from making and releasing his movie, which he has absolutely every right to make. The latest chapter in all of this is a court injunction in Ontario which essentially cripples Harper's project from progressing. The movie is finished, but they cannot move on it until all this is settled. My purpose today is to express how very angry I am that things like this are allowed to happen.

This is a time when we need to stand up and say THIS IS CENSORSHIP! THIS IS BULLYING! AND THIS IS NOT OKAY! We need to stand up and declare these things loudly. We need to tell people who engage in these tactics that they are taking a sledgehammer to one of the corners of modern civilization; FREE SPEECH! 

I have personally seen this film, which is why I am asking everybody to please show support for this film and it's creator! Let him know that we believe in him and that we are DEMANDING that this documentary be released. Let those who are opposing him know that they cannot do these things and not suffer the consequences from consumers! PLEASE TAKE TO SOCIAL MEDIA WITH THE HASHTAG #ROOMFULLOFSPOONS TO SHOW SUPPORT FOR RICK HARPER AND HIS DOCUMENTARY! Let him know we believe in him and his cause! The world deserves to hear what he has to say, and he has every right on this planet to say it!

Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Storybook? is DONE! Pre-Orders still available!

Great news, everyone! Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Storybook? Mystery Science Storybook Volume 3 is done, done, DONE! It's been a crazy year filled with DMCA takedowns, insane elections, classic television show revivals, and other things that directly impacted the making of this third volume. This was by far the most difficult of the three books to write and draw, taking well over a year from start to finish, but I'm happy to say that it has all been worth it!

Back in April, we started the pre-order offers with a delivery estimate set for August, which is next month, and barring any crazy developments (which aren't really expected, but still,) we're on track to deliver. There's still time to get an autographed special edition paperback or hardcover, but that window is closing fast. So if you'd like one of these autographed special editions, get in on the action now. Autographed hardcovers are $40 + shipping and autographed paperbacks are $20 + shipping. Non-autographed regular edition paperbacks for around $15 will be available sometime in August, and there will be no regular edition hardcovers.



Editions


Also, if you'd like to be included in the Patreon thanks page, as well as get drawn into the “Class Photo” section of the book, you have to become a Patreon subscriber no later than July 31st, 2017! It only costs $2 to get in on that action, so if you want to be part of the book, now is the best and cheapest time to do so!

Thanks to everybody who has stuck by me and this project this past year, it was a truly amazing ride. Stay tuned for the official announcement of publication, which will be in August.

Mystery Science Storybook RETURNS TO AMAZON!

GET THE NEW COLLECTION AT AMAZON.COM!

You heard that right! Mystery Science Storybook: Bedtime Tales Based on the Worst Movies Ever has returned to Amazon.com after almost a year long battle in the form of this 2-in-1 collection, The Return of the Revenge of the Storybook: Mystery Science Storybook Volumes 1 & 2!

As the title implies, this title collections Mystery Science Storybook and it's sequel Night of the Living Storybook: No Movie is Safe, All Movies Must Die! This was necessary in order to get the content back onto the internet's largest retailer so we can finally start reclaiming everything that was illegally and wrongfully taken. If you have written a review for either Volume 1 or 2, particularly the former since all the reviews for it were lost when the original edition was taken down, feel free to review this one with any thoughts you may still wish to share about it.

This collection costs only $5.99, so you save more than two dollars than if you had purchased both volumes separately. I would also like to point out that this is an Amazon Kindle Exclusive and will not get a physical printing. The collection is huge and in full color, so a printing is just not financially viable at this time.

Every single day since the original book was unfairly attacked and removed from every place it was being sold has been a battle. It's been a battle for relevance, a battle for legitimacy and a battle for the project's very existence. It left me completely emotionally drained at times, and at my lowest point I had actually decided to give up on the entire project. Obviously, I did not, I decided to endure. I'm glad I did. I'd like to thank everybody who offered support during this incredibly difficult time. You have no idea what each and every one of you have meant to me. You know who you are and I love you.

The only things left to say are, obviously, share this new collection, pick it up if you don't already have these two volumes, and take a gander at the pre-orders for Volume 3 which will ship in August. This is a huge victory for me and a victory in the fight against censorship. And, of course, thanks to the Savior, Christ the Lord, through whom which all things are possible. Glory to God in the highest, and on Earth; peace, goodwill toward men.
