The Kickstarter for the Women Up to No Good anthologies is back!
If you head on over there, you will find some great backer rewards and a whole lot of behind the scenes, author spotlights!
Over on Twitter, Joanne and Co. have been posting short excerpts from the stories in the anthologies–these are two I particularly like:
And she told them that they would be eaten, whatever that meant, because when she asked the magician why he grew a new carnival for every party, he told her that the carnival always gets eaten in the end.

He has little arms, little horns, little toes, little everything. He has no tail, but does have spurs on his back, where wings might be. He is the best surprise She has ever known…

And then there’s one from this chick I know pretty well:
And during a school break, her roommate away on a trip and the dorm practically empty, Clara saw Mary in the mirror above her dresser, watching. Smiling. Eyes in sockets but blood on her cheeks nonetheless.

(Spoiler: that one’s my story, “Mary In the Looking Glass”!)
There are stories in these books from L. Timmel Duchamp, Chikodili Emelumadu, Nisi Shawl, D.A. Xiaolin Spires, Catherynne M. Valente, Alyssa Wong, Sonya Taaffe, and Damien Angelica Walters, along with a whole lot of other amazing writers.
(Fangirly fun facts: Damien Angelica Walters guest-edited the issue of Penumbra eMag my story, “Hauntings,” appeared in! And Nisi Shawl and I were both in the April 2014 issues of Strange Horizons, so we spent a couple weeks in the same “table of contents”–read: front page. My brushes with greatness, let me show you them.)
So if you find this intriguing, hop on over to the Kickstarter and check it out–and please back the project, if you can!
