About this project
Post Peak Fiction Magazine is a quarterly short fiction magazine focusing on the stories of people and places after the energy descent.
Post Peak Magazine will be (with your help!) a beautiful 64 page, printed, quarterly, short fiction magazine. That means that it will be released four times a year and feature short stories about people and societies during and after the decline of energy. All kinds of stories from the optimistic to dismal, character to setting driven will be contained within the full-colored covers and delivered right to your mailbox.
Each issue will be loosely based around the season in which it is released. Five to six short fiction stories and one article will be published each issue from a diverse range of authors. Our first issue will feature an article by John Michael Greer.
The Post Peak genre, also called Post Peak Oil, Post Industrial or Post Energy Decent, is fiction that takes place during and after the decline of energy. Well known fiction that falls under this category include stories like The Fifth Sacred Thing, Mad Max and current populars like The Hunger Games. Basically any story that operates under the premise that our modern civilization is based on the consumption of finite energy resources and can not continue endlessly into the future could be considered Post Peak.
Post Peak Fiction Magazine will focus on narratives taking place in well thought out, believable scenarios.
The plan is to fund the first year (four issues) through this Kickstarter campaign. This will give the magazine time to get on its feet and make sure all its figurative ducks are in a row. After that the hope is to fund it through subscription costs and advertising.
The first issue will be released in Fall of 2012.
This can't happen with out you! It costs a lot of money to print and ship, let alone such high quality, perfect bound copies!
All of the production and editing is completely volunteer, it is all an act of dedication and love! So your contributions go completely to the printing and shipping costs and the fees kickstarter and amazon charge.
Kickstarter is an all or nothing fundraising platform. That means if the minimum isn't reached none of the money goes to the magazine! That is why YOUR help is so important!
