It’s the final countdown for The Final Summons!
The New England Speculative Writers Kickstarter campaign for The Final Summons anthology is in its final week and we have met and surpassed our second stretch goal! Woo-hoo! We’ve added one last very cool stretch goal of $1,855, and if we hit that threshold, we’ll donate a copy to each contributor’s local library, so please spread the word and help us hit this last goal.
The book will feature my short story The Going Rate for Penance and 13 other fantasy, horror, and science fiction tales from New England-area authors.
By backing this project on Kickstarter, you can pre-order your e-book copy now for $5 or a print edition for $25 — which also includes a copy of the e-book! For a larger contribution you can have a copy donated to your local library. Visit the project’s official Kickstarter page and learn more about the authors, their stories, and what you get for pledges as little as $2 and as large as $50.
