53 Hours to Go

Posted by Neil Clarke (Creator)

The last days of this campaign are here! My family and I are preparing for the long drive to Readercon, the scene of last year's heart attack. I'll be there as this campaign comes to a close. If you're attending, please stop by the dealer's room and say hi.

With 53 hours remaining, we are half-way to a stretch goal of increasing our author's pay rate. The stretch goal beyond that is an audio edition of the book narrated by Kate Baker, the voice of Clarkesworld. Can we make it? I sure hope so.

Thanks to our backers, the first stretch goal has added four more stories to UPGRADED. In the last few days, I've confirmed that Caitlín R. Kiernan and Greg Egan will have stories in UPGRADED. This project continues to attract some amazing writers and I'll continue to keep you posted as that list grows.

This is a very personal project. I can't begin to tell you how much I appreciate your support. Thank you for playing a part in helping me build something positive from one of the worst days of my life.

Take care, 

 -Neil

      So close to the audio book stretch goal... Fingers crossed.

      Shaping up to be an amazing anthology, confident we can sprint to that increase in the author pay rate and hope we can make the second increase. Very deserving contributors throughout.
