Interesting Kickstarter they're proposing. Hopefully it goes well for those who want it.

I wonder why they'd go with the odd number 31 (besides it being what's currently available), especially with 32 being available by the time it goes to print.

I think 30 would be better to have 10 even books. Then make 31 & 32 print version (and maybe even some more if possible) as stretch goals for future delivery. Personally if I was going to invest so heavily in an ongoing series I'd want some kind of guarantee for continued physical releases.

There is actually 33 volume because it titled differently which is vol 7,5 & 8,5.

Very happy about Otherside Picnic! I've been really interested in this one, hope it doesn't disappoint. (If only there was a physical version to go beside the book its title is nearly stolen from...)

Yes, Roadside Picnic by Arkady and Boris Strugatsky, the one the movie Stalker(1979) was based on.
