Greetings dear fellow science fiction fans,
Cici James here: I hope all is well and that the holiday treated those of you in the States well, and that the rest of you, our far flung friends, had a lovely weekend.
I'm writing today because I've recently assimilated into a new hive mind, from which sprang forth a very exciting idea I'd like to share with you: TYCHO, a new approach to the science fiction journal.
TYCHO is a fascinating, collector's item quality, print magazine combining art + science + fiction, (re)making the print science fiction periodical both beautiful and relevant, the Analogs and Asimovs of old.
Our goal is ambitious, but simple: to reinvent the sci-fi magazine and create the most beautiful science fiction journal… ever!
TYCHO is a collectable journal that will be right at home on your bookshelf; an un-disposable, indispensable, contemporary science fiction artifact, (re)making the print science fiction periodical both beautiful and relevant (think mid-century Fantastic Stories, Analogs and Asimovs).
Each issue of TYCHO will be a visually compelling love letter to all things science fiction and will feature:
- Brand new fiction (along with a lost classic or two)
- Original comics
- Beautifully presented mini-retrospectives of works by artists, illustrators, and photographers
- Long-form interviews with authors, artists, musicians, screenwriters, scientists, and directors
- And smart and compelling features, essays, and journalism exploring the crossroads of science fiction and film, music, philosophy, science, futurism, art, and more.
We're entering our FINAL STRETCH of fundraising (ends DECEMBER 8TH) and sending word to friends and family who might have an interest, or be able to pass it on to like minded folks.
Here's the link to the project: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/tychojournal/tycho-journal
Please take a gander, and if you're interested, PLEASE SHARE! We have 9 DAYS LEFT and we're HALFWAY THERE - but with your help I know we can make it happen!
Thanks so much, LLAP!
Ever and always,
