Congratulations, Cirsova

Yesterday the best little SF/F magazine that could, completed a successful Kickstarter for Issue #2.

The first issue was fantastic, and that was done on little more than a wing and a prayer.  It's going to be great to see what P. Alexander can do with some extra financial backing.  It didn't make the cut-off for any of the stretch goals, but most of those relate to "collector's edition" goodies, which don't have much appeal to those of us that are only in it for the stories themselves.

A $2 backing nets a copy of the PDF, which is a steal for the amount of content for the pirce.  It's looking like five short stories, a novella, and the continuation of Hutching's excellent long-form poetry retelling of John Carter's adventures. I threw down at the $10 level, more for the encouragement than the hard copy, as my reading has shifted over primarily to digital media.  Can't see me lugging around a hard copy magazine when the same thing is tucked right there in my cell phone.

Can't say either of the alternate covers tickle my fancy, but a glance at an uninteresting cover is more than outweighed by the hours of reading enjoyment that this magazine is sure to bring.
