I'm happy to say that 2D Cloud has asked me to contribute to the fourth (and from what I hear, FINAL) installment of Good Minnesotan. My story is sadly not as experimental as the others, but if you want to read a condensed biography of the greatest sailing vessel to ever be built, then you won't be disappointed. The story is called A Brief History of the Fram: And the Men Who Loved Her, and as the title suggests I highlight the three Norwegian explorers who sailed her the farthest north and farthest south of any wooden ship in history. They are:
Fridtof Nansen, who locked Fram in ice and tried to drift with her to the north pole:
Otto Sverdrup, who failed to reach the pole but ended up mapping much of the Canadian arctic:
Roald Amundsen, who set out to reach the north pole, but turned around and reached the south pole instead:
Good Minnesotan No. 4 comes out this August during MIX, but we need your help! Raighne and Meghan are raising funds via kickstarter, which recently helped fund Sarah Mirk's history comics project. If you're on the fence, at least check out this cool vid that Raighne produced, and if you look closely you can see him flip past my story!
Let the countdown begin!
