Robert Jeschonek has a very cool sounding Kickstarter project: Space 1975 anthology.

“Every story in this new book will feature the distinctive style of the 70s, transported to thrilling new worlds, fleets, and conflicts in the farthest and most exciting reaches of the universe. Groove to tales of cosmic heroes in bellbottoms and platform shoes…alien ships like glittering mirror balls…soundtracks of gritty soul, disco, and hard rock. You’ll find everything from kung fu fighting to streetwise private dicks…all souped up with incredible ray gun/rocketship action brought to sizzling life by some of the most talented scifi scribes of today and tomorrow.”

Writers include Marc Scott Zicree, Peter David, Dean Wesley Smith, and Cat Rambo.

Zombies Need Brains has a Kickstarter project for “three science fiction and fantasy anthologies, titled the Modern Deity’s Guide to Surviving Humanity, Derelict, and When Worlds Collide containing approximately 14 all-original (no reprint) short stories each from established SF&F authors in the field and new voices found through an open call.”

It needs about a six thousand bucks to reach the goal and there’s 23 days to go. Author lists include Laura Resnick, Kate Elliott, Tanya Huff, Kristine Smith, Sharon Lee and Steve Miller, Steven Harper, and Esther Friesner. They also have quirky “zombie packages” as pledges.

Dean Wesley Smith and Kristine Kathryn Rusch are running again a very interesting Kickstarter. This time they’re doing The Return of Boss in the Diving universe novel series. 13 more days to go.

It’s got two books in Rusch’s Diving universe, “Thieves” and “Squishy’s teams”.

It’s already funded and almost reached the third stretch goal which will be Rusch’s novella “End of the World”. The first stretch goal is a new Diving universe novella Maelstrom.

The project has several very interesting pledges for both writers and readers, including How to Write Space Opera writing workshop!

Storybundle has again very tempting bundles:
Mysterious women curated by Kristine Kathryn Rusch for 20 days, Best of British SFF curated by Lavie Tidhar for 16 days more, Boss Battle curated by David L. Craddock for 13 days more, and Bundoran Buddies Sci-fi Bundle 2 6 days more.

On Kickstarter, Dean Wesley Smith and Kristine Kathryn Rusch are running a very interesting project for writers. They’re doing Writing Bundles which has WMG Publishing’s ebooks for writers. It includes bundles of Smith’s and Rusch’s ebooks about productivity, craft, business, marketing, and industry. It has been funded and the first stretch goal has been met, so Rusch’s Freelancer’s Survival Guide is also included. 13 more days to go.

Dean Wesley Smith and Kristine Kathryn Rusch are running again a very interesting Kickstarter. This time they’re doing three anthologies of Cave Creek. Nine more days to go.

“Cave Creek, Nevada, where the unexpected meets the real world. It exists, but only in stories, written by some of the best fiction writers working today.” One collection is set in the past, one in current times, and the third in the future.

It’s already funded and almost reached the first stretch goal which is Rusch’s historical novella The Gallery of His Dreams. Other stretch goals have more books and for writers a lecture and even a classic workshop.

Dean Wesley Smith and Kristine Kathryn Rusch are running again a very interesting Kickstarter. This time a series of books full of 100 cat stories.

It’s almost funded and has a couple of weeks more to go and as usual, has awesome stretch goals to both reader and writers.

Dean Wesley Smith and Kristine Kathryn Rusch are running a Kickstarter for
WMG Holiday Special.

It’s already funded and has some great stretch goals. The project is for three Christmas / Winter Holiday short story collections, Bloody Christmas, Winter Holidays, and Joyous Christmas. However, if you pledge at 35 dollars or more “Starting on November 28, 2019, you can get a holiday story per day sent to you automatically. 35 days, one story per day. Then next July, all of the stories will be put together in one massive compilation with all the introductions. So, you can also get that next summer.” Sounds great! A week more to go.

Kickstarter has two interesting projects:

Pulphouse magazine subscription drive has reached the third stretch goal which means that we supporters get at least two extra issues and one short story collection in addition to the magazine. Seven days still to go.

Another project has three short story collections for people who love post-apocalyptic, outdated tech or food SFF Apocalyptic, Galactic Stew, and My Battery is low. Yes, that last one is in honor of the Opportunity rover. It needs only a few thousand bucks to reach the goal. Author lists include S. M. Stirling, Seanan McGuire, Tanya Huff, and Esther Friesner. They also have quirky “zombie packages” as pledges.

One of my favorite writers, Kristine Katryn Rusch, has created a Kickstarter project to get the newest Diving universe book out. It’s a stand-alone science fiction book. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the series.

The Kickstarter has funded and even reached it’s fourth stretch goal. So, now just by supporting it with five dollars, you can get loads of cool stuff, including a new Diving universe novella, a bunch of Rusch’s short stories, and a lot of swag for writers.
