Feminist SF Antho Kickstarter

If you haven’t seen it yet, check out the kickstarter Jef Smith is running for a feminist SF antho Ann and I have agreed to edit. As the kickstarter states, we consider this antho to be a contribution to the ongoing conversation and the long and complex history of feminist literature. We plan to take suggestions, have already begun outreach through email, and also hope if time permits to have at least a limited open reading period (for reprints). Our research for The Weird has given us leads on a fair amount of international fiction and authors as well–work that didn’t necessarily fit the focus of that anthology.

We’re also aware there is no way to get this completely right, if that makes sense. But we hope to make an honest and comprehensive effort, and to use web supplements and other online resources to make the antho the focal point of attention for existing feminist anthos and the websites of individual writers of note.

Ann and I are intensely excited to re-read the work of so many writers we love and to put together something that’s of use.
