A collection of stories about near futures, possible futures, and impossible futures.

169 backers pledged $3,290 to help bring this project to life.

Our second stretch goal met!

Mitigated Futures has passed the $2,000 stretch goal! That means I will be writing a brand new story this month for the collection.

That also means if anyone is interested in having their name used as a character in the story, they can now snag that upgrade. And there's a reward level that will let one of *you* tell me what the story should be about. I'll be starting the story on the 15th.

There are now more stretch goals unlocked:

-$2,500: I will do a live video streaming (using UStream) interview about writing, crowd funding, the collection, life, whatever you guys would like to ask questions about.

-$3,000 will unlock custom interior illustrations. Since we passed $2,000 and look likely to get to this mark, I've reached out to a handful of artists. As soon as the particulars are sorted, I'll reveal who they are.

-$3,500: I will release to backers a custom eBook of a single fantasy short story originally published in a limited print run anthology called Speculative Horizons in 2010. The story is On The Eve of the Fall of Habesh.

This has been a crazy fun project, I look forward to diving into a new short story later this week to add to the collection.
