Indie Publisher ‘Zombies Need Brains’ on Kickstarter

Editors Patricia Bray and Joshua Palmatier hope to raise $10,000 on Kickstarter to launch a new small press called Zombies Need Brains LLC.

Not only will the funds be used to launch this venture, they also intend to publish a short story collection entitled Clockwork Universe: Steampunk vs. Aliens Anthology. We’ve embedded a video about the project above–what do you think? Here’s more about the project:

Backers of this project will be creating a new force in the SF&F field, a publishing house that will fill a gap in the genre that we feel is growing by creating a market for original anthology projects open to outstanding authors, regardless of their publishing house affiliations. While some publishers still offer anthologies featuring their house writers, the market for open anthologies has been shrinking. With your help, we’d like Zombies Need Brains LLC to fill this gap.

Welcome to our Kickstarter Publishing Project of the Week, a feature exploring how authors and publishers are using the fundraising site to raise money for book projects. If you want to start your own project, check out How To Use Kickstarter to Fund Your Publishing Project.
