Woo-hoo!

My unscientific estimate is that members of Critters are around 10X more likely to make sales than non-critters (but cause and effect? who knows?). Regardless, this page is to celebrate our successes!

Critter Robert Qualkinbush has analyzed the reports below and created a summary page of how many sales Critters have had. Fascinating, and astounding! Good going to you all.

If you have something to report, tell me immediately!

Free ads on the Critters site are also provided as a benefit of membership.

Congratulations to...

This is a deeply meaningful story for me as a Brazilian. Rio-Niterói bridge is the most important bridge in Rio de Janeiro. It was built during the most harsh period of our military dictatorship. During its construction, 100s of workers were concreted alive; forever unacknowledged while the government squealed about progress. In 1992, journalist Geraldo, whose father died during the bridge’s construction, learns about strange sightings and wrecks near the bridge’s columns. He’s going to investigate… But sometimes, the past resurfaces to be acknowledged. } [Jun 2022]
