We’ve entered the final 24 hours for UPGRADED, my kickstarter cyborg anthology. It’s been an amazing experience. The project has been fully-funded and we’ve unlocked two of the stretch goals (four extra stories and a pay rate increase for our authors). As I write this, we are $2250 short of the stretch goal for funding the audio edition of this book.

THE KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN ENDS AT 3PM EST ON FRIDAY.  I would appreciate it if you help get out the word as the campaign comes to a close. Reaching that stretch goal would be awesome.


This project will have original stories by:

  • Elizabeth Bear
  • Helena Bell
  • Tobias S. Buckell
  • Pat Cadigan
  • Greg Egan
  • Xia Jia
  • Caitlín R. Kiernan
  • Yoon Ha Lee
  • Ken Liu
  • Chen Qiufan
  • Robert Reed
  • E. Catherine Tobler
  • Genevieve Valentine
  • Peter Watts
  • E. Lily Yu

…and several more to be announced soon. Julie Dillon will provide the cover art.

I want to say thank you to everyone that has participated so far. This is a very personal project and your support has not only made this dream a reality, but also helped me reclaim July 12th from the land of scary near-death experiences. Thank you!
