Exciting Kickstarter Things! I Am Even In Some Of Them.

(NOTE: Based on time elapsed since the posting of this entry, the BS-o-meter calculates this is 14.472% likely to be something that Ferrett now regrets.)

So if you haven’t been paying attention to the What Fates Impose Kickstarter – the one with my “a woman reads the future through Facebook posts” tale Black Swan Oracle in it – it’s about two-thirds of the way funded.  But two-thirds is not all the way, so they’ve been ramping up the rewards – there are new prizes with beautiful art from the exceptionally talented editor Nayad Monroe, and free paperbacks.  They’re kicking out the jams, here.
In addition, Nayad interviewed me for her blog, and so if you’ll click this link you can hear me tell you how my robotic vaccuum cleaner Opposite Cat directly inspired this tale.  It’s a weirdie origin story for a short story, even by my standards.  (There’s also a very good interview with Nayad herself over here.)
Don’t forget, for a mere $15, you can not only get the book, but get an MP3 of me doing a dramatic reading of the tale.  I intend to do A Performance.  So hey, a cheap deal to hear a Ferrett flail about.
And if you’re sick about hearing of me, then listen to Mike Allen.  Mike’s a very talented editor as well, having assembled the well-reviewed Clockwork Phoenix series, which have some beautiful tales contained therein.  Now he’s rebirthing his old poetry magazine Mythic Delirium (which, okay also has fiction), and he’s got his usual killer lineups of some of the best poets in spec fic on the chopping block for your entertainment.  Mike has exceptional tastes (oh, how I burn to one day get into one of his collections!), so if you’re at all interested in good poetry and lyrical stories, donate the moolah.
