Back at the end of August we kicked off our annual fund drive with a round-up of what we've been doing over the past year. We're heading towards the end of the fund drive period now, so it's time to take a look at how things are going.

First of all, a huge thank you to everyone who has donated so far! As I write this, we've raised just over $4,000 and, as ever, all of that will go to the running of the magazine and to our contributors. You can check the fund drive page for a breakdown of exactly what your donation will pay for.

Second, and obviously, we haven't reached our target yet, so this coming week is crucial. If you've been meaning to get around to donating but haven't done so yet, please do so this week! If you've already donated, please consider blogging or tweeting about the fund drive to spread the word. We've been collating peoples' posts about the fund drive on the blog over the last week, and it's been incredibly exciting to read what people have to say about their reasons for donating—whether that's Sarah Kanning's recollections of her first sale to us (and first professional sale), or pieces about what Strange Horizons means to them as readers by Matt Denault and Shweta Narayan, or David J. Schwartz's suggestions for three stories from the archives that you should read. (David is, of course, the author of this week's story, "Destiny, With a Blackberry Sauce.")

As an incentive, of course, we have our fund drive prize draw, which we've been adding prizes to all month. Everyone who donates gets entered into the draw, and we now have over 50 prizes listed, including books by Suzee McKee Charnas, Andrea Hairston, Nick Harkaway, Kameron Hurley, Alaya Dawn Johnson, Gwyneth Jones, Ursula K. Le Guin, Lydia Millet, Adam Roberts, Justina Robson, Carrie Vaughn, Genevieve Valentine, and really too many more to mention, and that's without getting into the non-book prizes. Thanks once again to all the prize donors.

As an added bonus, we're also pleased to be able to announce that all donors to the fund drive this year will receive a free ebook collecting some of the magazine's best content from 2010—specifically, the winners of this year's Readers' Poll. Strange Horizons in 2010 will be available after the end of the fund drive, and will include stories by Saladin Ahmed, Theodora Goss, John Kessel, Meghan McCarron and Sandra McDonald, poems by Bruce Boston, Emily Jiang, Lisa Nohealani Morgon, Marge Simon and Sonya Taaffe, Orrin Grey's essay "The Condition of a Monster: A Personal Taxonomy of Supernatural Fiction," and reviews by Abigail Nussbaum. We hope to do more with ebook editions of the magazine's content in the future, but for now consider this a handy sampler of the best of the magazine, and a thank-you for your support in the fund drive.

(And you never know, we might have a few other goodies to announce over the course of this week as well, so check the blog for updates!)

I love the idea of representing folk stories and showcasing the culture of my country in a different way.
But I thought of apple skin clinging to a curve, yet unshaped by apple-sorcery.
Corey slipped his hand into the puppet’s back, like he had done many times with the doctor who made him talk about Michael and bathtubs and redness. His breath and stomach squeezed whenever he reached into dark, invisible places.
