Indiana Jones Mystery Package (via @uchicagoadmissions)

This is quite entertaining, and a great example of the kind of alternative story telling formats that I enjoy and like to highlight here from time to time.

To "Indiana" JonesWe don’t really even know how to start this post. Yesterday we received a package addressed to “Henry Walton Jones, Jr.”. We sort-of shrugged it off and put it in our bin of mail for student workers to sort and deliver to the right faculty member— we get the wrong mail a lot.

Little did we know what we were looking at. When our student mail worker snapped out of his finals-tired haze and realized who Dr. Jones was, we were sort of in luck: this package wasn’t meant for a random professor in the Stat department. It is addressed to “Indiana” Jones.

As for writers trying to think of value-adding goodies they can offer to their biggest fans? Imagine if you made a limited edition run of something like this for your fictional world and offered it online to your fans?
