Kickstarting a steampunk anthology focused on "characters that are disabled or aneurotypical"

Steven writes, "The team (full disclosure: that includes me) that created the award-winning multicultural steampunk anthology 'Steampunk World' are now crowdfunding another steampunk anthology - this time with a focus on characters that are disabled or aneurotypical."


Two and a half years ago, we brought you the award-winning anthology Steampunk World, a diverse collection of steampunk fiction. Since then, there have been a number of other prominent anthologies and works of diverse steampunk fiction. That is exactly what we hoped would happen.

But it is not enough.

We want to see even more diversity. We want to see characters like all our friends and all the members of our families. We want fully developed characters in steampunk - and all fiction - who are disabled or aneurotypical. We want more than "token" characters, and clichéd plots.

We were told it was too hard - especially in a genre like steampunk.

We are going to prove them wrong again...and we want you to join us.
