Wow. So, I just checked in on Steampunk World, and it is gone, daddy, gone. Not only was it fully funded within its first week, but it is soaring through stretch goal after stretch goal. The most recent tier reached was $12,000, which allows the editors to pay the illustrious James Ng for illustrations for EVERY story in the book! The prospect of having my story “The Şehrazatın Diyoraması Tour” illustrated by James has had me beaming ear-to-ear all morning.
Thank you to everyone who has funded this project, and made it go above and beyond what anyone expected. If you have been on the fence about it, know that anymore proceeds in the next 56 hours will go towards continuing this community movement with a second volume that will have a open call to submissions.
