Events & Event News

Crowd Funding

  • Kaleidoscope – an anthology of diverse contemporary YA fantasy stories, which will be edited by Julia Rios and Alisa Krasnostein, and published by Twelfth Planet Press. Too often popular culture and media defaults to a very narrow cross section of the world’s populace. We believe that people of all kinds want to see themselves reflected in stories.
  • Terra Ex – a free-to-play, browser-based 4X space adventure from a team that claims veterans of development of World of Warcraft, Command & Conquer, and Lost Planet 3. They also say this is “more than just a video game” thanks to the real science it will present, thanks to contributions from the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory and physicist contributors to “The Universe” TV series.
