We've launched a Kickstarter to support the first English translation of a groundbreaking Brazilian anthology of science fiction stories set in sustainable future worlds. World Weaver Press acquired the English rights to this anthology, and we're working with translator Fabio Fernandes to bring these stories to an English-speaking readership.
The term "solarpunk" has been steadily gaining momentum in the English-speaking world to describe an aesthetic of hopeful, eco-friendly futures, stories that try to shift us away from the dystopian mindset that has been so prominent in recent science fiction. This anthology, edited by Gerson Lodi-Ribero, and featuring nine Brazilian and Portuguese authors, was the first published book to use the term.
Backer rewards include copies of the translated book in ebook or paperback, other science fiction books World Weaver Press has published, story critiques and concept consultations, and more!
Whether you're interested in ecological science fiction, or whether you're looking to support more international science fiction and science fiction in translation (or both!), please help share the news of our campaign.
