A preview of Gigantic Worlds

Posted by Gigantic Books (Creator)

Dear amazing backers, 

We are very excited to be able to give you a preview of Gigantic Worlds! Over at Electric Literature's Recommended Reading, we have posted "The Skin Thing" by Adrian Van Young. It's a tale of lost space colonists terrorized by a giant pink skin monster! We hope you enjoy.

As for the other 50 of the 51 stories in Gigantic Worlds, here is how things are looking. We estimated last update that we'd get the books to you in March. We should still be sending everyone the ebook version in March. The print books will likely be April. (If we ever do a future Kickstarter, we'll give ourselves a more realistic production time. Apologies again about the changing deadlines!) 

You should expect more frequent updates from us over the next month as we finalize the art, send out surveys, receive the books, etc. 

If you are attending the Association of Writers and Writing Programs conference in Seattle this month, please drop by Gigantic's table and say hi! 

Lastly, we have put up a temporary Gigantic Books site with info on the book that will be updated as we hit this final stretch. 

As always, we thank you so much for your support and patience! We hope that you are staying warm during these winter storms, and we hope you check out Adrian Van Young's "The Skin Thing"!
