    Along with receiving your physical and digital deck and book, you'll also receive a set of 12 high-res postcard story wallpapers and a year of monthly story postcards in the mail. The postcards are printed on recycled matte cardstock, signed by the author, and feature stories from The Shortest Story 3 months before they appear on the website, along with one annual story exclusive to mail subscribers. Subscriptions begin December 2019. Note for existing postcard subscribers: If you backed last year's project, the September 2019 postcard was the last of your subscription. I will be pausing mail-outs in October or November and resuming in December 2019 so nobody misses out.
