The team at Grimdark Magazine has a Kickstarter for their new anthology Evil is a Matter of Perspective: An Anthology of Antagonists. Taking a cue from the adage that “everyone is the hero of their own story,” this collection features stories told from the point-of-view of antagonists from popular books and series.
Some of the contributing authors include:
- R. Scott Bakker (The Second Apocalypse)
- Adrian Tchaikovsky (Shadows of the Apt, The Tiger and the Wolf)
- Michael R. Fletcher (Manifest Delusions)
- Shawn Speakman (The Annwn Cycles)
- Teresa Frohock (Los Nefilim)
- Kaaron Warren (The Gate Theory, Mistification)
- Courtney Schafer (The Shattered Sigil)
- Marc Turner (Chronicles of the Exile)
- Jeff Salyards (Bloodsounder’s Arc)
- Mazarkis Williams (The Tower & Knife)
- Deborah A. Wolf (The Dragon’s Legacy)
- Brian Staveley (Chronicle of the Unhewn Throne)
- Alex Marshall (Crimson Empire)
- Bradley P. Beaulieu (The Song of the Shattered Sands, The Lays of Anuskaya)
- Matthew Ward (Shadow of the Raven, Coldharbour)
The core project has reached its minimum funding level, but there are still a number of stretch goals to be met. There are financial goals for additional stories and a window for unsolicited submissions. Backer number goals include first and second-year bundles of Grimdark Magazine and additional novellas and collections offered as goodies. The Kickstarter runs until Thursday, July 14, 2016.
