UnSung Kickstarter is Live!

We’re excited about the next step in our submission process opening up– the KickStarter! We need your generous donations to keep our project going; Since we’re a new, token-paying market, we need help with paying our contributors.

The goal is to gain even more traction and eventually be able to compensate our contributors more generously, but in order to do that, we need your help.

Please donate here if you can, and spread the word to your friends and colleagues!

Kickstarter Update 7

Hello!

I’m pleased to announce that volume one of Black Ice Magazine has been filled! Stories, interviews, and artwork are going into layout, and we’re on track for a mid-late March release.

In our latest update, you’ll find an excerpt from “The Surgeon Symphonies” by S.E. Casey, a particularly gruesome and strange short story that sickens as much as it entertains. You’ll also find its accompanying artwork, which we’re proud to unveil.

You can find the full update here: https://tinyurl.com/hnsfs53

Enjoy!

Happy Holidays!

Just wanted to pop in and wish you all some good ole fashioned Season’s Greetings–or, rather, Beatings, as you’ll soon read in an upcoming story sample, pending author approval.

Bad puns aside, 2017 is going to be a very good year for science fiction fans. Between major films, television shows, and novels, there’s something for everyone to look forward to; the genre is a gift that keeps on giving, so to speak.

Work on the magazine has slowed over the holidays, as expected, but will resume with haste in the upcoming weeks. In addition to the story sample, we hope to share some artwork in mid-January. As I mentioned in our last Kickstarter update, we’re considering changing our submission guidelines, but that is still being decided.

Thank you all again for sticking with us, and we hope you all have a wonderful year.

Kickstarter Update 3

Wow, 95% funded with 10 days to go! That’s awesome!

Last time, we previewed our updated design template; nothing’s changed there (yet). However, we’ve filled a third of Volume 1, and it’s only December! I’m so excited to bring you all these fantastic stories.

Now, in our most recent Kickstarter Update, you’ll find a sample from Allen Lang’s hilarious near-future story, “Dodgem.” We hope you enjoy it!

Kickstarter Update 2

We’re a mere $42 dollars away from a successful Kickstarter with 20 days to go! You guys are awesome!

Update #2 includes an updated look at the magazine layout; we also announced our first acceptance, a wonderful story by Allen Lang. You can find that here: http://tinyurl.com/zq64ef8

We also posted an interview excerpt on our Facebook page! We sat down with Jon Everist of Shadowrun fame to discuss his work on the series and his passion for music. You can check it out by following this link: http://tinyurl.com/zj9qxxj

I’m so pleased at the progress being made, and look forward to reading all the fantastic stories to come our way!
