Mother of Invention

Nope, this is nothing to do with Frank Zappa. It is an anthology from Twelfth Planet which is currently crowdfunding on Kickstarter. The theme is that it will feature diverse, challenging stories about gender as it relates to the creation of artificial intelligence and robotics. It will be edited by Tansy Rayner Roberts & Rivqa Rafael, and will include stories by Jo Anderton, John Chu, Kameron Hurley, Rosaleen Love, Sandra McDonald, Seanan McGuire, E.C. Myers, Justina Robson, Nisi Shawl, Cat Sparks, Bogi Takács & Kaaron Warren. There will be on open submission period too. I have a story I want to write for it, but I doubt that I’ll have time to actually write it and the thought of being in that sort of company is frankly terrifying.

Just back it, OK? It’s gonna be awesome.
