Spanish Women of Wonder Kickstarter

Back in January, I reviewed the Spanish anthology Alucinadas and the reasons behind it. More women are writing science fiction in Spanish than ever, and it was a chance to show what they could do.

The result was an outstanding anthology. In fact, it’s been nominated for Best Anthology in the Ignotus Awards, which will be presented at Spain’s national science fiction convention this coming weekend in Granada. (I’ll be there.)

This great book is only available in Spanish, but that can change. A Kickstarter campaign is trying to collect enough money to translate it under the title Spanish Women of Wonder. If you back it, you’ll get ten original stories plus a delightful tale from the novel Trafalgar by Angélica Gorodischer.

Full disclosure: I’ll be the translator. I’m excited by the chance to bring these stories by women I know and admire to English-language readers. And now, with 10 days remaining, the project has raised €3,495 of its goal of €4000. Only €505 ($557 USD) to go!

Become a backer – and get some great rewards in addition to your copy of Spanish Women of Wonder.
