Saturday is the last day to contribute to the Kickstarter for Lightspeed’s special issue: Women Destroy Science Fiction. The crowdfunding for this project has not only exceeded the original goal, but has raised so much money that Lightspeed will be publishing all-women horror and fantasy issues in addition to the science fiction one.
As part of the fundraising effort, Lightspeed solicited essays on women’s experience in the genre, most of which are available here. Essays from three BVC members — Maya Kaathryn Bohnhoff, Amy Sterling Casil, and Nancy Jane Moore — are included.
While the project is well-funded, there is still a good reason to contribute: anyone pledging $5 will get an ebook edition of all the planned publications.
