About

This campaign is raising funds to enable Xi Draconis Books, an independent press that publishes socially engaged literature, to publish Patrick Barney's novella Misfit the Wanderer in October of 2019. 

As a statement against commodification, XDB offers its books to readers free of charge. Because of this, XDB operates on the goodwill of donations and voluntary monetary support. This year, the press has come up a little short on funds and needs your help to keep publishing socially conscious works of literature.

Risks and challenges

XDB is a new press, in existence for about two years. It has published four books in that time, all without a hitch. This means that those who donate can feel at ease. The project will definitely be successful, provided it accumulates the necessary funds.
