The campaign for Not Our Kind is well underway!
If you’re already a backer, thanks so much! If not, now is the time to check out the Kickstarter campaign for this book!
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.
The book’s currently raising money on Kickstarter. If you’re not familiar with Kickstarter, it’s a website where you get to be a patron of the arts like the Medicis, with PBS-style pledge rewards. No money gets charged until the project gets fully funded, and Alliteration Ink has a stellar track record on delivering on its Kickstarter campaigns, so there’s practically no risk to you.
