Elly writes, "We're running a Kickstarter to try to give the feminist-bicycle-scifi-about-zombies genre a big leg up."
Pedal Zombies is the third volume of "Bikes in Space" feminist sf anthologies, which were of very high quality -- making the risk of this kickstarter not delivering, or of it delivering something subpar, very low. $10 gets you a copy of the book and some "Zombie rights!" stickers.
We at the ZLA have compiled this book of the best, most representative stories of current attitudes about zombies, and are presenting it to the world so that we all, living and undead, of all gender identities and racial and class backgrounds, can discuss our relations and future and hopefully bring a peaceful end to the present conflict. Together, we believe that we can produce a better world than the living alone were ever able to.
13 authors have submitted original short pieces, each of which illuminates a different aspect of The Situation as they understand it. Some essays are historical in nature, others are futuristic, yet others are apocryphal; there is also a section of book reviews that you may find invaluable. Styles and perspectives vary widely; our goal is not to define the present troubles singularly, but to open up a conversation.

It’s been some time since I visited AbeBooks.com’s wonderful “Weird Book Room,” a special curated section within the glorious online marketplace for used books. Sure, some of the books may not be so odd on their own but all together they make for quite a bizarre bibliography. Seen here are just a small sampling of […]
In 1975, Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge seized power in Cambodia after expelling a US puppet regime, surviving a brutal US bombing campaign despite the massive asymmetry between the Cambodian forces and the US military. Tian Veasna was born three days after the Khmer Rouge took power, and spent his formative years in forced labor camps as his family were beaten, starved, tortured and murdered. Today, Veasna is a comics creator living in France, and in Year of the Rabbit, Veasna creates a coherent story out of his family's narratives, giving us a ground-level view of the horrors of the Pol Pot regime, whose campaign of genocide led to the deaths of more than a million people.
