Kickstarter Watch: Fantasy Scroll Mag

If you read my last post, you may be familiar with Fantasy Scroll Mag, a new science fiction and fantasy magazine that will be publishing a story of mine called The Unworthy in one of its first issues. Fantasy Scroll Mag is currently running a Kickstarter campaign to support the launch of the magazine. This, of course, makes them perfect fodder for the next installment of Kickstarter Watch!


In their own words, Fantasy Scroll Magazine publishes science fiction, fantasy, horror, and paranormal short stories, with one mission in mind: to provide high quality, entertaining, and thought-provoking speculative fiction. 

They recently released a small sample issue to give readers a glimpse of what to expect when the magazine launches, featuring two short stories you can read right now for free. They're also running a series of interviews on their Kickstarter updates page with the authors who will be contributing to future issues--including Yours Truly

If you're a reader of science fiction and fantasy, it's more important than ever to support new markets in the short fiction space. It's also worth mentioning that one of Fantasy Scroll's stretch goals is to be able to raise their pay for writers to pro-rates, and that would be fantastic. As of this writing, they're in their last week of funding. So please give them a read and consider kicking a few dollars their way to help out.
