Alliteration Ink Presents: The Kickstarter for NOT OUR KIND: TALES OF (NOT) BELONGINGNot Our Kind: Tales of (Not) Belonging
This Kickstarter is to fund a genre-defying diverse collection of fantasy and sci-fi stories of cultures, their problems, and seeing life from a new point of view. It's edited by Nayad Monroe, who previously edited the critically acclaimed What Fates Impose.
When you talk about outsiders, it's easy to think about that sense of isolation when you're not one of the "popular kids" in high school, when you're the new person on the job, when you stand out in a bad way.
But there's more than that.
There's the sense of wonder at a new, alien place. There's seeing everything you know through a new, different point of view.
These stories defy expectations and easy genre boundaries.
But if you want that sense of wonder and amazement when you first encountered speculative fiction, that idea that there is something different, something more just around the corner, just out of sight, that sense of coming home to the unfamiliar, then this is the book you want to read.
In twenty-four hours, we're over 15% of the way to our first goal - and future goals include more stories through an open call for submissions!
You can back the project at http://bit.ly/kicknotourkind and get this book - and some pretty spiffy extra backer rewards - for yourself!
