Table of Contents: HELP FUND MY ROBOT ARMY! Edited by John Joseph Adams

Editor John Joseph Adams has posted the table of contents for his upcoming crowd anthology/collection Help Fund My Robot Army!!! & Other Improbable Crowdfunding Projects, wich also has its own website.

Here’s the book description:

HELP FUND MY ROBOT ARMY!!! is an anthology of science fiction/fantasy stories told in the form of fictional crowdfunding project pitches, using the components (and restrictions) of the format to tell the story. This includes but is not limited to: Project Goals, Rewards, User Comments, Project Updates, FAQs, and more. The idea is to replicate the feel of reading a crowdfunding pitch, so that even though the projects may be preposterous in the real world, they will feel like authentic crowdfunding projects as much as possible.
So if what you’ve always been looking for in a Kickstarter—and couldn’t find—was a project that allowed you to SUMMON DEMONS, DEFY GRAVITY, WIELD MAGIC, or VIOLATE CAUSALITY, then Help Fund My Robot Army!!! & Other Improbable Crowdfunding Projects may be just the thing you’ve been looking for.
