I’m happy to announce that, at last, the eSpec Books Kickstarter campaign for my new original novel Arachne’s Crime is underway! (Mod Note: link removed search for Christopher L. Bennett on kickstarter.com) The book is being bundled with To Hell and Regroup, the conclusion to military SF author David Sherman’s The 18th Race trilogy. According to the Kickstarter site: I announced Arachne’s Crime and its sequel Arachne’s Exile at Shore Leave last year, and I’d hoped to have at least the first book out already, but various delays have befallen it. Rather than let things be delayed any further by the current crisis, we’ve decided to go ahead in spite of it. We know that money is tight for a lot of people right now, but we also know that people need books to read to help them occupy their minds and keep their spirits up through all of this. So we hope you can help us achieve our goals. If a lot of people donate just a little bit each, it’ll add up.
