Next Year’s Perqs


Conceived in the brainpan of Michael Redhill, Brick columnist, editor emeritus, Giller winner, aspiring ocelot smuggler.

 

We here at Brick understand that our subscribers expect to feel special. And why shouldn’t they? It’s due to our subscribers that we exist. Our subscribers help pay our printing bills, our staff, and our in-house masseuse, Boy Jeff.

But we know getting the magazine in the mail twice a year sometimes feels like you’re not doing enough. That’s where donating to Brick comes in. But how much?? As you know, with a subscription and a modest donation you already receive a signed copy of any of the editors’ books, but did you know for $100 more you get an ocelot? Not enough? Read on and level up!

 

Subscription + $75 donation: Two years of Brick and a handwritten explanation of why Linda Spalding won’t drive an Italian car for love or money.

 

Subscription + $300 donation: Two years of Brick and the editorial board will wax your car or your back. (n.b.: you cannot donate $300 twice and get your car and your back waxed.)

 

Subscription + $350 donation: Two years of Brick and an ocelot.

 

Subscription + $400 donation: Two years of Brick (any two), an ocelot, and the Order of Mimico.

 

Subscription + whatever bail is for all of the contributors to issue 97 (The Plagiarism Issue): Two years of Brick and the current editor of the Walrus will apologize to you for anything you’re upset about.

 

Subscription + $600 donation: Of course we’ll wax your car and your back.

 

Subscription + $800 donation: Two years of Brick and a bottled fart discovered in the wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald. (Only two available at this level of giving.)

 

Subscription + $1,000 donation + you let us hold all future launches in your house: All of the above, but we use high-quality carnuba wax.

 

Small print: All of the above offers expire September 31, 2016.
