Uncanny Magazine, year three… and check out one of the stretch goals!

Uncanny Magazine is raising funds for Year Three! They’ve done so much in two short years and I gotta say I really love working with them. Their whole editorial team is pretty fab to say the least. Watching the video gave me little happy shivers to see so many creators I like waving and supporting the UNICORN DANCE PARTY! Supporting Uncanny this year also creates the opportunity for the Things to continue hanging out with Uncanny and stretch themselves into…

I made a strong decision to use the Nebula Awards Conference as a place to run some experiments and challenge myself….
