Title: Help Fund my Robot Army!!! & Other Improbable Crowdfunding Projects
Editor: John Joseph Adams
Short story anthology
This collection is really an outrage idea. All of the stories are fake Kickstarter projects with fantastical or science fiction elements. Each story is presented as if it was a Kickstarter pitch. And of course the project was funded by a kickstarter… which I supported. How meta is that!
Part of the fun of this collection is knowing the format and the ways in which the stories plays with that format. In the following I will comment on the stories that interested me.
