I mention on a lot of ComicsGate livestreams that Sci-Fi publishing is even in worse shape than the comic industry. It’s true, even though that’s hard to believe because comics has gone so crazy.
We’ve been supporting a lot of indie projects but there’s sci-fi stuff we need to make sure gets funded as well.
The first is Cirsova Magazine. This magazine really changed my life — and I mean it. It introduced me to a new flavor of action-packed writing which actually comes from the good ol’ days when science fiction was selling in the millions instead of thousands. It changed the way I write and it could use your support before it closes shortly. Don’t worry about the numbering, these are standalones with short stories in them. If you love comics and want to get more into reading, this is about as close as it gets to having short, digetable stories in comics but in prose writing form. Check it out here. It’s about a thousand from funding and only 4 days to go. It needs you!!!
Also up is Bradford Walker’s Star Knight Saga. This is again an old pulp adventure style book but this one’s a novel. It already funded and I believe on the first day.
Both have low costs and low buy ins and we need folk like this to make dents in sci-fi just like we’re doing in comics. So please don’t be shy.
I’m now moving my broadcasts to youtube, in the form of The Lunch Stream with my new cohost S. Misanthrope. Please go to youtube and subscribe as you won’t want to miss these broadcasts.
