UPGRADED News

I am very pleased to announce that three more authors have agreed to write stories for UPGRADED:
  • Pat Cadigan
  • Caitlín R. Kiernan
  • Peter Watts

The Kickstarter campaign ends this FRIDAY and we are $96 shy of our first stretch goal: four more stories!

I'd like to give a big thank you to everyone that has helped spread the word about this campaign. Hopefully it isn't too much to ask that you continue to do so. The stretch goal for the audio book (everyone at the $25 and up level gets it free) is still lurking out there and I've been told a lot of you would like to see it happen.

Have a great weekend!

-Neil

UPGRADED Cyborgs Racing to the Finish Line

With only two weeks to go, my Kickstarter campaign to fund UPGRADED is just over 75% funded! A big thank you to everyone who has pledged or helped spread the word. It's beginning to look like we'll make it, but I don't want to take anything for granted. Please continue to spread the word via your blogs, Facebook, mailing lists, Twitter and at conventions.

Now that we're closer to the end, I'll be moving onto phase two of the story solicitations, which will include some authors that I've never had the pleasure of working with before. If we reach our goal, phase three (an open call for submissions) will begin in early August.

My Readercon Schedule

Just received my schedule for Readercon:

Sunday July 14

9:00 AM CL Kaffeeklatsch.
Neil Clarke, Amanda Downum

10:00 AM G Digital Marginalia: A Conversation with Your Future Self.
Neil Clarke, Michael J. DeLuca, David G. Shaw (moderator), Ruth Sternglantz, Gayle Surrette.
Electronic reading devices allow us to carry huge libraries wherever we go. They also provide us with the ability to highlight, annotate, and share what we read. In a 2012 blog post, Clive Thompson described this enhanced reading experience as "a conversation with the author, with yourself, and in a weird way, if you take it along as a lifelong project... a conversation with your future self." According to Craig Mod, "The book of the past reveals its individual experience uniquely. The book of the future reveals our collective experience uniquely." What tools will we embed within digital texts to signal this shifting relationship with literature, and how will readers use them?

I'll also have a table in the Dealer's Room, so you can find me there on most other days.

End of Week Kickstarter Update

UPGRADED, my Kickstarter cyborg anthology is off to a great start this week. After four days, 156 backers have contributed over 58% of the funding I need to make this book a reality. I want to thank everyone that has contributed and/or spread the word about this one.

This is my first Kickstarter campaign, so I've never seen the back-end before this week. I'm very impressed by the amount of data they provide. For example, I know that Twitter is sending me far more backers than Facebook and just how many people have watched the video to the end. I could get lost analyzing the data here. Must resist.
