Tell Johnny To Make A Wish List! Over 75 Ruin Mist Gifts And Collectibles Now Available

SEATTLE--(PR NEWSWIRE)--August 20, 2003—Reagent Press has been inundated with rights requests, including those for film/tv, foreign and audio rights ever since the publication of Keeper Martin's Tale in early 2002. So far this indie publisher has gone it alone, forging strategic partnerships selectively, and continuing to move slowly. New for Fall 2003, the indie outfit is launching a complete line of Ruin Mist merchandise for fans of the books and anyone else looking for great gifts, collectibles and memorabilia.


Gifts, collectibles and memorabilia all have artwork designed by Robert Stanek. Items available include:


  • Posters with 11x17, 16x20, and 23x35 poster prints.
  • Framed artwork with original art prints.
  • T-shirts, baseball jerseys, men’s tank tops, and women’s tops.
  • Collectible coffee mugs, beer steins, and travel cups.
  • Hats, caps and visors.
  • Greeting cards and post cards in sets of 6 or 8.
  • Decorative tiles and tile boxes.
  • Tote bags and mouse pads.

The Ruin Mist Gear shop, online at (, has been in development for nearly 6 months and officially launched today. Over 75 gift items are currently available, and early sales look to be strong. Ask Thomas Green of Reagent Press what he thinks about all the interest and he'll tell you: Most small presses dream of that one big book that'll put them in the black for the year, that's what he's used to. He never dreamed that the launch of Keeper Martin's Tale™ would lead to franchise opportunities. But there it is.


Stanek's comment: "My son wants to see Ruin Mist on Microsoft Xbox™. If that happens, he'll be the happiest kid in the world and I'll be the happiest dad."


Ruin Mist™ is the fantasy world Robert Stanek created and wrote about in his top-selling books for adults, teens and children. For more information about Ruin Mist books, as well as other Reagent Press novels, visit
