It’s been an exciting first week with the Uncanny Magazine Kickstarter. With 24 days to go, we’ve reached 71% funded and 506 backers. Thank you so much. We couldn’t make this dream come true without your support.
To celebrate, we’re adding some groovy new backer levels and an add-on.
Space Unicorn Rangers Corps Patches Add-On:
Would you like a Space Unicorn Rangers Corp patch (think scouting merit badge)? If you add $10 to your pledge and let us know in your survey after the Kickstarter finishes, you will get a snazzy patch with our awesome Space Unicorn logo (as designed by the phenomenal Katy Shuttleworth).
New Backer Levels:
$100 (10 available) AUTOGRAPH HUNTERS’ DREAM: Normandyes postcard autographed by 8 different writers currently there on a French retreat: Elizabeth Bear, Greer Gilman, Ellen Klages, David D. Levine, Scott Lynch, Pat Murphy, Madeline Robins, and Rachel Swirsky. Includes everything from the SUSTAINER level.
$100 (10 available) SWIRSKY STORY FOR YOU: Personalized, autographed unpublished short story manuscript from Rachel Swirsky. Includes everything from the SUSTAINER level.
$250 (1 available) SCARY HAM FUNERAL KIT: As heard at this year’s Nebula Awards: the story of the scary ham: http://www.tor.com/blogs/2014/05/the-scary-ham. Ellen Klages will put together a unique package including an autographed print of the Scary Ham Story and a canned ham. (Please follow local laws when dealing with your ham). Includes everything from the SUSTAINER level, and larger prints of art from Julie Dillon and Galen Dara. US backers only; we won’t ship ham internationally, alas.
$500 (1 available) SHOP WITH Maria Dahvana Headley: Take a vintage shopping trip in NYC with Maria styling you (you are responsible for purchasing stuff if you like it), or Maria will create a virtual redecoration of your home into her signature cabinet of curiousities style – as in, you tell her your favorite things, and she make a virtual fantastical room for you. Travel to NYC and lodging NOT INCLUDED. If you follow Maria, you know this is going to be an epic shopping experience. Includes everything from the SUSTAINER level, and larger prints of art from Julie Dillon and Galen Dara.
We’ve also adjusted the retreat:
$1500 (2 available): POCONOS RETREAT Support at this level gets you a writer/editor retreat in the Poconos, with Lynne M. Thomas, Deborah Stanish, and possibly additional area writers (Fran Wilde, Sarah Pinsker, A.C. Wise, Michael R. Underwood) based on availability. You are responsible for getting to Philadelphia, but we will cover transportation to the house, housing and food and wine for the weekend. Includes everything from the SUSTAINER level, but yours is a lifetime subscription to Uncanny, and larger prints of art from Julie Dillon and Galen Dara.
