$19,752!

That's from 453 donors, or, including Patreon supporters from the first year, 678 -- which is a new record for the number of people involved in a fund drive. Thank you all!

What it means is:

  • Strange Horizons is fully funded for 2017 at the same level as this year
  • In addition, as of 1 January 2017, pay for reviews goes up from $30 to $40
  • And we'll be publishing our full planned Spanish SF special at the end of this month, on 31 October
  • And we've raised $1,752 besides for translation-related projects!

Obviously that last number isn't everything we were aiming for -- but it's certainly not nothing. We'll talk to the Samovar team about what the best way to use that money is.

We also didn't reach our interactive fiction goal, but we haven't given up on funding that either. We have a grant application in that would cover one issue of sub-Q, if awarded, and will be exploring other funding routes as well.

Thanks are due to everyone working behind the scenes to make this fund drive a success. As with everything else Strange Horizons does, this was a team effort. We owe thanks to everyone who let us use their work in our fund drive special, for instance, and to everyone who tweeted, blogged, or otherwise spread the word about the fund drive. But a number of people on staff went above and beyond this year, so particular thanks this year must go to our Senior Webmaster, Tim Moore, for making sure all the bonus content was published on time and in the correct place (not as straightforward as it might sound); Art Director Heather McDougal, for developing the snazzy promo images we've been using on social media for the last couple of weeks, and the cover of our fund drive special ebook; Development Coordinator, Kate Cowan, for wrangling the prize draw; Associate Editors Jane Crowley and Kate Dollarhyde for taking on a share of the promotional and logistical admin tasks this year; and Podcast Editors Anaea Lay and Ciro Faienza, for additional recording above and beyond the call of duty.

And thank you, of course, to everyone who donated -- now we will go and make the best magazine we can.
