The ToC for Start a Revolution has been finalized, and I’m now making it public:
The anthology will contain 14 original stories, and 2 reprints. As I’ve already said elsewhere, the book’s contributors are, before accounting for gender fluidity and non-binary gendering, ~80% women, and ~25% PoC.
There’s quite a fair amount of PoC content in the book (especially including protagonists), as well as protagonists and a host of other characters who map to Trans*, pansexual, asexual, lesbian, gay, bisexual, genderfluid, genderqueer, and so many other QUILTBAG identities.
This book makes me ridiculously happy.
Start a Revolution will see release from Exile Editions in Spring 2015. Possibly April, though the release month’s not yet fixed. There will be several launches for the book (working on where, though at least one will be in Toronto), and some additional online content (also possibly an online launch if we can arrange it) is already in the works.
Review copies will be available upon request (once review copies are ready to go). And I am very interested to see what people make of this book.
