So Ragnarok Publications is at it again with another fantastic anthology on Kickstarter. It's titled GENIUS LOCI: Tales of the Spirit of Place. Ragnarok Publications kickstarted Kaiju Rising in 2013 and Blackguards in 2014. I backed both and Ragnarok does a great job.
Here is the link to the Kickstarter: http://kck.st/1GfP1ZU You're going to need that. This Kickstarter started today and is already a Kickstarter Staff Pick!
I absolutely love Genius loci stories. They fascinate me so you can imagine how much I am looking forward to reading this anthology. Note: Just for transparency's sake, I am a backer. Why wouldn't I be?
GENIUS LOCI IS EDITED BY JAYM GATES, who has an extensive background editing SFF and horror anthologies such as Rigor Amortis (2010), Broken Time Blues (2011), and War Stories (2014), as well as Crossed Genres Quarterly. She has been the Communications Director for the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers Association of America (SFWA) since 2010, runs publicity and communications for the Nebula Awards, and is the author of over 30 pieces of fiction and nonfiction.
