You folks following me for awhile know I’m all about some laughs. Last year, I worked closely with Alex Shvartsman as an associate editor on the first anthology of speculative fiction humor that I’d ever seen. My bookshelf isn’t exactly spilling over unto the carpet, but I’m pretty sure these things don’t happen that often. Since humor doesn’t get much play, and since everyone needs a good laugh, the other editors and I worked hard on Unidentified Funny Objects, being about as serious with the funny as you could get, and we came out with a product that readers raved about.
Now we’re doing it again. At least we’re trying to. In order to make this thing as successful as the last, we’re going to need your help. A Kickstarter campaign’s in progress to raise funds to ensure UFO 2 is just as awesome as the first one, if not more so. Check it out, and you’ll see some pretty sweet rewards for donating. A 6 dollar donation will get you the first UFO anthology, so you can see for yourself how awesome it is (for those writers out there, it’ll also give you the perfect idea of what we’re looking for in case you wish to submit). There are bundle packs to get the first UFO and the second in trade paperback and e-book. These books may be the only currency in a near-future, humorless dystopia… that’s why they’re called trade paperbacks. No matter what you donate, you’ll be actively contributing to keeping humor alive in genres that are way too stuffy about their Uranus probes and chainmail bikinis.
TL;DR version: Give us your dough. Before you say no, think of the Lunchmeat Zombie Ghouls.
Go to the Kickstarter and kickstart us!
