Imbolc update.

1 February 2015

Just learned that today is Imbolc, a Gaelic festival for the beginning of spring! So, happy Imbolc, and here’s some news about our Spring 2015 catalogue:

  • Our Kickstarter campaign for How to Live on Other Planets: A Handbook for Aspiring Aliens closed with $3,488 pledged, which, after we pay Kickstarter and Amazon (for credit card fulfillment) and contributor royalties, netted us about $2,500, allowing us to order a very small print run of the anthology, and pay for some promotional materials (business cards, flyers, etc.) for the AWP conference in Minneapolis in April. Look for us at Table 1919.

Also, as always, there’s new reading out from, and news for, Upper Rubber Boot authors since our last round-up at New Year’s!

Apocalypse Now: Poems and Prose from the End of Days contributor Brian Evenson has translated Incidents in the Night Book 2, by French artist David B.

His fellow contributor Kelly Link has a new collection of short stories: Get in Trouble, which has been reviewed quite favourably.

hustler-kneeland Choose Wisely: 35 Women Up To No Good contributor Andrea Kneeland‘s How to Pose for Hustler is out in a month and is already getting rave reviews from Roxane Gay (“Kneeland’s remarkable, razor sharp short fictions”) and Lindsay Hunter (“It’s a how-to for people trying to be people, trying to figure out how to live despite the darkness and confused desires that are too often mistaken for light. This book is a headlamp, and it is also the darkness. I could not put it down.”).

 
How to Live on Other Planets: A Handbook for Aspiring Aliens contributor Ken Liu (who had a very, very short story in 140 And Counting) has a translation of “Folding Beijing” by Hao Jingfang in Uncanny. io9 recently discussed his translation of Cixin Liu’s The Three Body Problem.

His fellow contributor Daniel José Older‘s new book Half-Resurrection Blues was called “fresh and richly envisioned” in Publishers’ Weekly.

Finally, Sarah Pinsker‘s “Beauty and the Baby Beast” was in Daily Science Fiction.
