You can help bring a new online SF/F magazine to life. Hugo Award-winner Lynne M Thomas and Hugo Award nominee Michael Damien Thomas are launching Year One of Uncanny Magazine, featuring professional online SF/F: fiction, poetry, essays, and much more.

To make this a reality, they’ve created a Kickstarter campaign to reach a goal of $26,000. As of this writing, they have already received over 50% – $13,000 – in just the first 24 hours.

Join in and support a new outlet for great online SF/F!
