Authors Helping Authors: SFFWorld Anthology Kickstarter


I love sffworld: an amazing site for fans of fantasy and science fiction to talk about their favorite speculative fiction. For the last four years, they've been producing some mighty fine anthologies edited by N.E. White.

The way they create these anthologies is pretty interesting. Generally, they have a few "anchor stories" from established authors, and then hold a contest to pick some up-and-coming authors to shine a spotlight on. I was pleased to be an anchor author for the 2012 anthology and they are currently working on the 2015 version.  Here's a bit about the projects:
 
  • The End - Visions of Apocalypse - featuring Michael J. Sullivan and Hugh Howey
  • Lucky or Unlucky? Thirteen Stories of Fate - featuring Mark Lawrence
  • Wars to End All Wars - Alternate Tales from The Trenches - featuring Elizabeth Moon
  • Ecotones - Ecological Stories - featuring Tobias S. Buckell, Ken Liu, and Lauren Beukes 



  • This year, they are using Kickstarter to raise the funds for the anthology and they have just a few days left to raise another $142 to reach full funding.  

    If you want to check it out, just click here, on the Kickstarter logo, or the main picture. I backed it and I hope it gets the last 10% because I really want to read this stories.

    1. Thanks very much for the profile boost, Michael - and, as of a few hours ago, our Kickstarter campaign hit it's minimum target! There are still nearly two full days to go, but this means anyone still tempted to back us will be betting on a sure thing...

    3. Very useful information, when you modify and save a document theme so that you can relate it to other documents or presentations, the modified theme is saved in the Document Themes folder and is routinely added to the list of custom themes.
