Welcome to Pacific City on Kickstarter

The shared-world anthology of superhero (and supervillain) stories is now live on Kickstarter. This has been a long time building. Last spring, there were a series of brief interviews with the contributors (here's mine), but then the project was put on hold while the editor moved.

But finally the campaign is live. What's really cool here is the opportunity to have your own tuckerization--name a character from the stories after yourself, someone you love (or even someone you despise...). (Within good taste, of course.) Several of those characters appear in all or most of the stories, so you get to name a character who appears throughout the anthology. And who knows, there have been some discussions of follow-up anthologies set in the same shared world, so your character may well live on in future versions of Pacific City. Some of those tuckerizations have already been claimed, so be sure to get in soon if you want one of the others!


What about my story? "Over Water, Under Surveillance" is a sort of superhero origin story, where Becklyn is initially simply a counter culture/outsider type on the edge of the city, but between body modification technology and the actions of the city's corrupt police, she begins to become something different, something more.

So check out the website (there's some fun, in-world stuff on the Welcome to Pacific city part), read the interviews that are already up, and watch for more interviews to come. And most of all, support the Kickstarter, whether you want to name a character or simply want your own copy of the anthology. Many tiers to choose from, so support the antho now.
