A deadline that's about to whoosh by...

Hi everyone,

Just to let you all know that we will be closing the supporter names list for 42 on 15th January, 2023.

This means that anyone who pre-orders 42 after 15th January will not get their name in the back of the book (just in case you were all planning on getting an extra copy).

As early supporters of 42, you will all see your name in the back (hurrah!) - expect an email about this from us this week. You can also check/amend the name you want in the back of the book in your Unbound account.

Many thanks,

The team at Unbound.

Can someone please let me know what is going on with this project???
I signed up to Kickstarter having read about the project in The Guardian.
Kickstarter charged £40 to my Credit Card on 21 April 2021 and sent a few "project updates" (the lat on 22 April 2021). After that, nothing...
And, now I find that the e-mail address I signed up to Kickstarter with isn't recognized by Unbound. Have I been scammed? If so, by who??

Go to the help centre link down the bottom and ask about the 42 Kickstarter. They should be able to advise you how to make an unbound account and link it to your Kickstarter account. I think they've been focussing on the updates on here.

Great to see these photos. I just wish I'd attended to the posts and offered some of my photos of Douglas at Cambridge, in Footlights Pantomime and Adams Smith Adams, and on holiday. Maybe I'll find them and offer them to St Johns some time - if Martin Smith and Will Adams don't mind.
Looking forward to the book - deadlines are indeed for whooshing past and Douglas would have been proud of you.

To Pam Alexander: I hope that you find the photos, share them with the author and that they make it into the book. Will wait to see the finished book, of course, but "can't wait" and will be very excited on the day that it finally gets here.
