You’re a person who loves speculative fiction. Give you a blaster, a sword, a creature from the Outer Black any day.
You’re also a person who loves literature. Works that take language seriously, that treat writing as art.
What kind of magazine is this going to be?
This project is aimed for so-called “interstitial” works – short fiction and poetry that are too literary for genre, too genre for literary. Works that push the boundaries of both.
This is not a place for pretentious self-involved literary works, nor is it a place for flat genre. This is a place where metaphors exist alongside magic, where synecdoche occurs in space, where elves pen ekphrastic poems of Pickman’s paintings.
This project is set up not to get big backers (though those rewards are there!), but to bring these works to as many people as possible. That’s why as little as $3 can get you a full year’s worth of stories, poems, non-fiction, and artwork.
Wait, only $3 for the full year?
That’s the other special thing about this Kickstarter – the more we raise, the more content there is for all backers. The more we raise, the more issues, more stories, more poems, more art there is for you… without you spending an additional dime.
What’s the catch?
There is one, small catch. To make this happen, we need lots of people to support it. We have to tell everyone.
That’s why we created issue #0 – a “sample issue” – that’s free for anyone and everyone. You can get the free digital issue #0 at the Kickstarter page: http://j.mp/fund_recompose.
