      I forgot to say something about this when the books came, but I wanted my name listed and it wasn't either.

      Took me most of the past year to get my one-year subscription reward from "Women Destroy..." fixed and now my one-year subscription from this Kickstarter isn't right. Hopefully it doesn't take a year to fix this one!

      Hi Steve,

      Sorry about that! Someone else said the same thing. Not sure how that happened. I think we'll post a note to see if we can get people to let us know if they had wanted to be listed but ended up not being credited, and then we can include a page with those folks in QDH or QDF or something like that.

      I completed my BackerKit with my name as I wanted it shown in the Kickstarter backers section of the book 3 weeks before the deadline and somehow I didn't get listed :(
      With that being said, I DO love the DESTROY! books :)

      Hi Erin --

      Good question! (Since we completely neglected to mention it!) No, it hasn't been yet. So in addition to the "JJA Queer Sampler" ebook anthology, and Queers Destroy Fantasy/Horror, the filk song is also still forthcoming.

      Was the filk song already sent out?

      Darn. Came back too late to email my questions. Oh, well, at least I managed to pledge something. I'll have to dig up the physical wants somewhere else...

      @Sonia

      Giving away a dupe would probably be the easiest option, and we'd be fine with it!

      @creator -- I got a copy of Lightspeed as part of another project reward; will there be a place on the survey to tell you? so I don't get a duplicate?
      or, if I end up with a dupe can I just give it away (in good conscience)?
      I'm talking about all-digital rewards, not physical.

      @creator Mostly trying to figure out how they relate to several of the pledge levels. I'll do a bit more puttering around trying then might end up emailing to figure it out.

    22. Lightspeed Magazine 3-time creator on February 16, 2015

      @turkishproverb

      Yes, sorry -- unfortunately there's no good intuitive way to setup the add-ons. I wish Kickstarter would build it into their infrastructure!

      If you have any specific questions, please let us know. You can email us at iwanttodestroysf@lightspeedmagazine.com.

      If you're just having trouble figuring out HOW to add an add-on, this Kickstarter has a good set of instructions for how to do it: http://www.greenbriergames.com/main/index.php/2014/09/how-do-i-add-an-add-on-to-my-pledge-yashima-and-future-campaigns/

      If you're just having trouble with some of the options, let us know what we can do to help.

    29. ShadowCub

      on February 14, 2015

      With 49 hours to go, we only need $6122 more to reach the final stretch goal.

      That's a few subscriptions and/or a handful of print copies pledged ($125) per hour.

      Could there be an add-on for the WILDE STORIES, but for all the past editions? A separate one for HEIRESSES OF RUSS as well. :) I'd never heard of the collections so I'd like to get them all in one swoop. And if that helps us reach 50k, all the better!

      Separating the 2014 editions might also get more takers. You could price them to make the combo more attractive (10$ separately, 16$ together) if you want to cross-promote them to the other's audience.

    31. Lightspeed Magazine 3-time creator on February 13, 2015

      Jake, the Destroy Fantasy deadline will be announced after we line up our guest editor. The Fantasy issue will be published later than SF (Dec.), so it'll have a later deadline. We'll have a different submissions link for you to use since a different editorial team will be working on it.

    32. Jake Frondorf on February 13, 2015

      When is the destroy fantasy submission deadline? Does it use the same form as the sci-fi submission does? It was very specific about only wanting sci-fi.

      Woot we hit $40k and are getting fantasy. I guessed at what the trade PB would run & added it to my pledge to help us hit the goal. One last goal to go. Can we raise another $10k in 3 days? I hope so. The Women Destroy series were fantastic and the calibre of guest editors for Queers Destroy is pretty high so the issues should be phenomenal.

      Hi all,

      Sorry about the delayed response! We were in the process of sorting out Reward Add-Ons and we're now pleased to say that we now have them available:

      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/lightspeedmagazine/queers-destroy-science-fiction/posts/1128026

      So now you should be able to pick and choose to get exactly what you want. :)

      Thanks again for your support!

      @Doron I'm pretty sure the "women destroy" issues will be sent out within a couple weeks post-funding. It can take 2-3 weeks for all the funding issues to be worked out & Lightspeed magazine gets the money we've pledged. I think that's how it's worked in the past campaigns when I was getting back issues.

      @Julia I'm with you I'd love to order a couple additional print copies.

      I used the contact me button asking Lightspeed to drop by the comment section to answer questions.

      Is there a way to pledge for multiple copies so I can have one for me and share a couple copies to share with our Gender Sexuality Alliance library and the Campus Women's Center?

    39. Doron Mosenzon on February 2, 2015

      When will those who choose the Megapack reward receive the "Women Destroy..." issues?

      I'd love to pledge more and get more of Nightmare. Any chance of that being a backer level?

    42. Chelle P on February 1, 2015

      I would dearly love to pick up print copies of the whole Destroy series. (When I backed WDSF, I only went for digital.) Is this possible?
