“The Future Fire” Seeks Funding Through Peerbackers

The Future Fire magazine is seeking funding through Peerbackers. With a little over a week to go, they’re currently sitting at about 80% of their goal.

From the site:

We are raising funds to publish a special issue/anthology of colonialism-themed speculative fiction from outside the first-world viewpoint, co-edited by Fabio Fernandes and published by The Future Fire.

Colonialism is still a thorn on the side of humankind. Many of the problems of the Third World, for instance, are due to the social-political-economic matrix imposed on its countries by the First World countries since the 17th century (e.g. the manufacture by European powers of arbitrary borders and tribal conflicts in Africa, and then the creation of Arab countries to defeat the Ottoman Empire in WWI). The balance of power is changing in the 21st Century, but it’s still essential to look back if we want to truly understand the forces at play in the political and cultural panoramas of Third World countries—and even in countries that hardly can be labeled as Third World, like the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa).

UPDATE: The initial target of $3000 was surpassed in the first 40 days, so whatever happens now, the colonialism-themed issue of TFF as described below will happen. But if we can reach our new target of $4000 in the next ten days, We See a Different Frontier will not be an issue of a magazine with 7-8 stories, but a full book-length anthology with over 60,000 words of fiction. Please continue to show your love to this project, and spread the word about our extended target.
