Editors Lynn and Michael Thomas celebrate the success of the Uncanny Magazine Year Two Kickstarter, which raised over $32,000, in their editorial in the November/December issue.
The fact that you’re reading this tells you that we were successful. Not only did Year Two fund, we reached every initial stretch goal. Year Two will have all of the content that Year One had, plus a spiffy new webcomic by the amazing Liz Argall…
We are so grateful and honored to be doing this again. We love Uncanny Magazine, and we believe we’re publishing important, quality Science Fiction and Fantasy stories, poems, podcasts, and essays, featuring diverse voices and pieces with a certain Uncanny point of view. Based on the fact that so many people support us with Kickstarter, through subscriptions, and on Patreon, clearly a large portion of the community of SF/F readers, creators, and fans agree.
The November/December issue contains original fiction from Elizabeth Bear, Ursula Vernon, Alex Bledsoe, Karin Tidbeck, and Yoon Ha Lee, a reprint by Alaya Dawn Johnson, nonfiction by Aidan Moher, Annalee Flower Horne and Natalie Luhrs, Deborah Stanish, and Tansy Rayner Roberts, poems by Mari Ness, Sonya Taaffe, and Lisa M. Bradley, and interviews with Yoon Ha Lee and Alex Bledsoe.
All of the content became available for purchase as an eBook (PDF, EPUB, MOBI) on November 1, 2015.
