Welcome to the Spanish Women of Wonder!
We are seeking your help to bring our anthology to the English-speaking world. Eleven amazing science fiction stories that should be known and read beyond Spanish-speaking borders!
Last December, editors Cristina Jurado and Leticia Lara gathered ten wonderful science fiction stories written in Spanish by very talented women. We got more than 200 stories from female authors from 12 countries, and we selected 10 for this project. Brilliant Argentinian author Angélica Gorodischer very graciously offered one of her own great stories to be part of Spanish Women of Wonder (“Alucinadas”, in Spanish!) and the fantastic Ann VanderMeer wrote the best foreword ever. We already have a professional translator, specialized in science fiction and fantasy, engaged to start the project.
When we achieve our target, we will be able to translate and publish the anthology.
Depending on contribution, our patrons will not only receive the English version of Spanish Women of Wonder, but also the Spanish original, copies of the bilingual pro-zine SuperSonic, The best of Spanish Steampunk from the publishers Nevsky, a high quality poster of our cover, a membership of BCon2016 –next year’s European SF Convention-, a dinner with one of the guests of honor…and, for the most generous among you, an exclusive guided tour of Dubai, the jewel of the desert, and the closest thing to experiencing, on Earth, life in a luxury colony on an alien planet. Editor Cristina Jurado will personally take you to places only insiders know: you supply the magic carpet and the lamp; she’ll be your genie!
With your help, we can make the voices of Spanish female authors of Science Fiction finally be heard around the world.
Come and celebrate Spanish female writing !!!
