Another premium added & some other special ones

Posted by Ellen Datlow (Creator)

Thank you to everyone who has helped fund Fearful Symmetries. We only have four more days to nail down this sucker and we need a little over $8000. 

What you can do now is keep passing on and spreading the word.

I've just added the arc and hardcover of the WFA nominated anthology The Coyote Road edited by me and Terri Windling. Inscribed by me. (If I can dig other arcs out I'll add them along with finished books).

We have some very fine art available including two more creepy doll photos by my sister, original art by Chris Roberts, GMB Chomichuk, and Alan M. Clark.

Posted by Ellen Datlow (Creator)

Phenomenal artist Chris Roberts has added another original painting to sweeten the $250 pot he's offering. Check out the new Skeletor art below. This is in addition to the original painting he offered up, "Frog Man," which can be viewed below the Skeletor art.

So you now get both of these original paintings, as well as the trade paperback and eBook of the anthology, along with acknowledgement in both editions, all for $250 (dropped down from $500!).

10 more bypass-the-CZP-slushpile rewards added!

Posted by Ellen Datlow (Creator)

We're over halfway there now, folks! Thanks so much, and please do continue to spread the word! In the meantime, we've added an additional 10 bypass-the-CZP-slushpile rewards, since they were so popular. Here's the entry:

"Bypass the ChiZine Publications slush pile. Send your novel manuscript to the publishers at ChiZine Publications, skipping the slush pile and getting read first, plus a copy of print and electronic versions of Fearful Symmetries, plus acknowledgment in both print and electronic editions of Fearful Symmetries."

We'll be sweetening the Chris Roberts original-artwork pot soon, too. Stay tuned!

Cheers, and thanks so much to you all—we can do this!  :-)

Brett, Ellen, Sandra, and Matt
