Latino/a Rising Anthology
Hey, guys, we just wanted to give you a quick update about an anthology that's going on right now that we've backed and would love to see fund. It's called Latino/a Rising, and it's the first anthology of Latino/a speculative fiction in the United States.
With the exception of Edward James Olmos’ Bladerunner and Battlestar Galactica, positive U.S. Latino/a characters have been largely absent from mainstream speculative fiction novels and films. Films such as Men in Black and Alien Nation, and shows such as X-Files, express the anxiety that the mainstream has concerning Latinos/as and recent immigrants. Latino/a Rising will contest this trend, showing how Latino/a writers and artists are transforming the genres.
With only 4 days left, it's sitting at about 65% funding, and could really use a boost.
Now, at $12, this one has a relatively high eBook cost, and we generally will not bring books that have relatively high eBook costs to your attention, because of a suspicion that the charge to Kickstarter backers may be higher than what is going to be charged in the general marketplace. That said, we have spoken with the creator of this anthology and have been assured that is will, in fact, be the charge in the general marketplace. And we really think the world needs to see more anthologies like this. Please go out and give it a look.
