About this project

UPDATE (2013/3/29): 2 days left to reach stretch goal!

The Kickstarter ends Sunday! If we reach $30,000 by then, all ~30 stories in Long Hidden will be accompanied by original black-and-white artwork! Help us get there!

* * *

UPDATE (2013/03/19): Stretch goal #2 reached! Long Hidden will add an extra ~10 stories/~50,000 words! Can we make the next stretch goal, to add original black-and-white artwork to each story?

UPDATE (2013/03/13): Stretch goal #1 achieved! Editors Daniel and Rose will be writing and recording a song for backers! We're now less than $3,000 away from Stretch goal #2: adding an additional ~50,000 words to Long Hidden!

UPDATE (2013/03/08): Stretch goals ahead! Would you support the publication of more stories like the ones in Long Hidden? If we reach $20,000, we'll add an additional ~50,000 words to the anthology!

UPDATE (2013/03/07): Long Hidden is fully funded! Now we're aiming for our stretch goals: An original song written and recorded by the editors, additional stories in Long Hidden, and more!

What we want to do

Most written chronicles of history, and most speculative stories, put rulers, conquerors, and invaders front and center. People with less power, money, or status—enslaved people, indigenous people, people of color, queer people, laborers, women, people with disabilities, the very young and very old, and religious minorities, among others—are relegated to the margins. Today, mainstream history continues to perpetuate one-sided versions of the past while mistelling or erasing the stories of the rest of the world.

There is a long and honorable legacy of literary resistance to erasure. This anthology partakes of that legacy. It will feature stories from the margins of speculative history, each taking place between 1400 and the early 1900s and putting a speculative twist—an element of science fiction, fantasy, horror, or the unclassifiably strange—on real past events.

Our plan is to include about 20 stories, or about 100,000 words. The anthology will be released in trade paperback and DRM-free digital formats in the first quarter of 2014.

These amazing authors will be submitting stories for the anthology:

Yes, you! Assuming we reach our goal, there will be open submissions to fill the rest of the anthology! The pay rate will be $0.05 per word, for stories up to ~7000 words. Submissions will open as soon as the Kickstarter ends.

Why do we want to make this anthology?

Why tell stories from the margins of history?

  • We want to take a step toward righting an injustice that goes back to the dawn of time: some types of people are deemed more worthy of protagonist roles than others. We believe that all people are the heroes of their own stories.

  • We want to provide solidly grounded historical fiction to modern readers, who may have only encountered myths, fragments, or garbled notions of how marginalized people lived (and died) in past times—or may never have learned anything about those people at all.

  • By foregrounding marginalized people from the past, we hope to amplify marginalized voices in the present. Every story will make a statement that these voices deserve to be heard, and these stories are worth telling and reading.

Why make them speculative stories?

  • We want to reclaim speculative literature. Science fiction, fantasy, and horror writers frequently spin tales of intrepid conquerors and feuding kingdoms that have their roots in real-world history of invasion and oppression. This perpetuates the idea that certain people are unfit for heroism, and leaves many speculative fiction fans longing for protagonists they can identify with and stories that recall their own personal and family histories. Those fans deserve a book like this.

  • Speculative fiction is what we know best: Crossed Genres publishes speculative fiction, Daniel writes it, and Rose edits and reviews it. We're passionate fans of genre fiction. And like anyone who puts together an anthology, at heart we're simply looking for the kinds of stories we've always wanted to read. Our hope and belief is that you'll be as excited by this anthology, and as eager to read it, as we are.

Stretch goals

If we reach our $12,000 goal, Long Hidden will be published. And it will be an amazing anthology! But after we reach that first goal, we hope to raise enough funds to expand Long Hidden and make it even better! Here are the expanded goals we hope to shoot for:

Backer rewards

Of course print and ebook copies of Long Hidden are available, but as you can see to the right, we've also got lots of other great backer rewards!

$35 reward - "Geek Swears" t-shirt: "Smeg, Frak, Frell & Gorram! (Also Shazbot.)"
  • Also at $50, short story critiques are available from each of the editors, Rose Fox and Daniel José Older, as well as author An Owomoyela! Rose is also offering critiques of novellas ($150) and 1 full novel critique ($400)!
  • The $65 reward is the first hardcover edition Crossed Genres has ever produced for any of its titles, and we're super excited to make this limited edition HC of Long Hidden! Only 50 copies will be made; they'll be hand-numbered and signed by Rose and Daniel!
  • If you watched our video you probably saw the stylin' flatcaps both Rose and Daniel sported. Those caps came from Goorin Brothers Hatmakers. For a $100 pledge, Rose and Daniel will acquire the Goorin Bros. flatcap in the style of your choice (up to $45 retail price), both will autograph the inside, and then send it to you! The pledge also nets you a trade paperback copy of Long Hidden, and the ebook.
  • For a $200 pledge, author An Owomoyela will write a completely original story of at least 2,000 words, according to a prompt you provide! You also get a trade paperback copy of Long Hidden, and the ebook. (An Owomoyela reserves the right to refuse any prompt; se will not write anything defamatory or derivative in nature. Owomoyela retains ownership and copyright to the story.)
  • Crossed Genres Co-Publisher Bart Leib has done the interior layout and cover design for most of CG's titles, including Sabrina Vourvoulias' novel Ink, the anthologies Fat Girl in a Strange Land and Subversion, CG Magazine, and more, as well as freelance design & layout work. For a $250 pledge, Bart will do the cover design and interior layout for the project of your choice (up to 100,000 words). You'll also get a trade paperback copy of Long Hidden, and the ebook.
  • If you're a writer in the NYC area, you should check out the first $300 reward: NYC paramedic, musician, author and Long Hidden co-editor Daniel José Older will lead his 2-3 hour writing workshop "Unraveling Gender and Power In Literature and Life" for up to 10 people. This workshop is a critical look at different ways that gender and power shape our realities and experiences of the world. With an emphasis and examples from the writing process and fantastical literature in particular, we will deconstruct dynamics of power and privilege on the gender spectrum. Each attendee will receive a signed copy of Daniel's collection SALSA NOCTURNA and a trade paperback copy of Long Hidden, as well as the ebook.
  • Also at $300 is a popular reward from our previous Kickstarter: We'll send you DRM-free ebooks of every current Crossed Genres title. Then, we'll send you ebooks of every future title we ever publish... ever. Novels, anthologies, single-author collections, chapbooks, CG Magazine—any title we ever release on ebook, for as long as Crossed Genres exists.
  • If you love live music and excellent fiction, the $500 reward will appeal to you! NYC paramedic, musician, author and Long Hidden co-editor Daniel José Older will come to your home (or other venue of your choice) with the soul quartet Ghost Star to perform! The band will play, and Daniel will read from his popular short story collection Salsa Nocturna. (Hear samples of Ghost Star's music!) Daniel will bring 25 signed copies of Salsa Nocturna for you and the other guests! (NYC AREA ONLY)

There's even more: print and ebook subscriptions to CG Magazine, signed books donated by some of the wonderful authors listed above, and so on! There's something for everyone!

Who we are

Daniel José Older is a writer, composer and paramedic living in Brooklyn, New York. Salsa Nocturna, Daniel’s debut ghost noir collection, was hailed as “striking and original” by Publishers Weekly. He has facilitated workshops on music and anti-oppression organizing at public schools, religious houses, universities, and prisons.  His soul band Ghost Star performs original multimedia theater productions about New York history around the city and he’s composed scores for nationally known filmmakers, puppeteers and choreographers. His short stories have appeared in Strange Horizons, Flash Fiction, Crossed Genres, and The Innsmouth Free Press, among other publications. Daniel is working towards his MFA in creative writing at Antioch University, Los Angeles and is represented by Eddie Schneider at JABberwocky Literary Agency. You can find his thoughts on writing, read his ridiculous ambulance adventures and hear his music at http://ghoststar.net/ 

Rose Fox edits speculative fiction and romance reviews for Publishers Weekly, co-hosts Publishers Weekly Radio on SiriusXM's Book Radio channel, and provides freelance editorial services to unpublished authors and nonfiction publishers. Rose is also the program chair for Readercon, the world's most thoroughly awesome speculative literature convention. Rose lives in New York City with two partners, three cats, four computers, and several thousand books.

Crossed Genres Publications is a small press publisher "justly famous for producing high quality, genre-bending, innovative and inclusive magazine issues, anthologies, and the occasional novel." (-The Future Fire)

Framingham, Massachusetts-based CGP is the publisher of Crossed Genres Magazine. CG Magazine ran for 3 years (2009-2011). Thanks to CGP's immensely successful 2012 Kickstarter, the magazine returned in January 2013, now paying SFWA-standard rates.

CGP has published three novels, a short story collection, and several themed anthologies, including Subversion: Science Fiction & Fantasy tales of challenging the norm, Fat Girl in a Strange Land, and Menial: Skilled Labor in Science Fiction.

Crossed Genres is proud to include the Long Hidden project in the Kicking it Forward initiative! We promise to pledge at least 5% of our post-release profits to new Kickstarter projects! Check out the website for more projects that are kicking it forward!

Risks and challenges

Stories like the ones we want to publish in LONG HIDDEN are few and far between—often because publishers don't believe there's a market for them. Our real challenge is to prove that readers want these stories.

Crossed Genres has made a name for itself publishing stories that usually go untold, and finding an enthusiastic readership for them. During our more than four years of publishing and three previous Kickstarter campaigns, we've had great success producing quality titles and getting them into the hands of appreciative readers.

Now we're counting on you to prove that these stories are worth telling and these voices are worth hearing!
