Publisher Steven Saus sends us a Kickstarter for "a diverse steampunk anthology from your favorite award-winning authors, including Jay Lake, Nisi Shawl, Ken Liu, and Lucy A. Snyder."
The editor for this anthology came to me a year and a half ago with the idea. We've spent that time making sure we could get a truly diverse range of authors and characters and tell great stories. (We are not fans of "stick a gear on it" steampunk.)
We're raising money on Kickstarter to do pay a fair rate to the authors - and with stretch goals of exclusive covers from James Ng, interior art, and possibly funding a second volume of diverse steampunk stories.
Steampunk World: A multicultural steampunk fiction anthology
Randall “XKCD” Munroe’s Thing Explainer: Complicated Stuff in Simple Words arrives in stores today: it combines technical diagrams and wordplay in pure display of everything that makes XKCD brilliant and wonderful in every way.
Craig Thompson’s second graphic novel, the 582-page mammoth Blankets, swept the field’s awards, taking three Harveys, two Eisners, and two Ignatzes. More than a decade later, and buoyed by his later successes (such as 2011’s seminal Habibi), Drawn and Quarterly has produced a beautiful new edition.
Munroe’s upcoming book, Thing Explainer, occasioned an interview in Time; in characteristically wonderful style, he answered all the questions with one-panel cartoons. (via /.)
