About this project
NEW: Stretch Goals! What can we provide best as a reward for more funding, but more fiction!
$12,500: We'll add a special Novellette (7,500-15,000 words) on a Saturday to celebrate.
$20,000: Once a month children's tale on a Saturday. (Our nine-year-old daughter has been begging for this.)
Daily Science Fiction (DSF) provides science fiction, fantasy, and slipstream stories via email and on the website every weekday for free to more than 7,000 avid readers. Stories from Monday through Thursday tend to be bite-sized, with full length tales on Fridays for weekend reading.
In the first three years, DSF stories have been named notable stories in the Million Writers award, named finalists for the micro award, made shortlists for the Bram Stoker horror award, and been reprinted by many fine venues.
DSF pays its authors professional rates, and then some, and publishes some of the strongest writers in the field. This kickstarter is one of several ways to make sure Daily Science Fiction will be sustainable for many years to come. It won't take much. Merely $5 per subscriber would be enough to cover the money paid to authors.
This is where you come in. Please support Daily Science Fiction. Every dollar received will go directly to pay authors for their work for the six months from 9/1/2013-2/28/2014.
Risks and challenges
The publishing industry is inherently a risky one. We hope to attract great writers with a concise and effective style. We hope to reach readers who want the short stories we hope to publish.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
We value international readers as much as U.S. readers, of course!
The foreign book reward is the same $25 for the book, plus $30 international shipping per book. We wish it could be less.
