Unsung Kickstarter: OUT OF THE DARKNESS edited by Dan Coxon
The Fantasy Hive is excited to announce the launch of a new Kickstarter by Unsung Stories, one of the leading independent publishers of SF and Fantasy in the UK.
The Kickstarter for Out Of The Darkness, a new anthology of horror and dark fantasy stories exploring the theme of mental health, goes online today.
Unsung have previously successfully funded two excellent anthologies on Kickstarter, 2084 edited by George Sandison (2017), in which speculative fiction writers imagine futures inspired by George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty Four, and This Dreaming Isle edited by Dan Coxon (2018), which collected horror stories inspired by British folklore and landscape. Both anthologies showcased an incredible range of talent in speculative fiction.
This new anthology will also be edited by Dan Coxon, and once again features a stunning array of talent:
Jenn Ashworth, Eugen Bacon, Simon Bestwick, Georgina Bruce, Gary Budden, Richard V. Hirst, Verity Holloway, Tim Major, Laura Mauro, Alison Moore, Nicholas Royle, Ashley Stokes, Sam Thompson, Anna Vaught and Aliya Whiteley.
The Kickstarter will include exclusive editions, including strictly limited hardbacks.
All the royalties and fees from the collection will be donated to the mental health charity Together For Mental Wellbeing.
So not only do supporters get what looks to be an essential showcase of horror and fantasy fiction, complete with Unsung’s standard beautiful cover art, you also get to support a good cause!
