Thanks to 729 backers making pledges worth $26,050, plus a huge final two-day push by editor Brian White and others -- the Fireside Magazine Kickstarter reached its goal! I hope as publication begins this summer that word will spread and subscriptions will go up and Fireside will be around for a long, long time to come. And for me personally this is fantastic news because it's now official that "Catch a Fallen Star" will see publication sometime in 2013 or 2014.
Despite that grand success, the Kickstarter nail-biting is not yet done. Raygun Chronicles has 28 hours to reach its goal of $8,000 in pledges. It's still a couple thousand dollars short but narrowing the gap all the time. This is an anthology of 23 space opera stories, including one of mine but also stories from well-established science-fiction writers you've heard of and love.
