Hello, people for whom this is a civilized time to be awake! As you may recall from previous posts, since I'm in the UK, I'm in bed. (I hope.) I write to you from the past, hoping that the future is golden and happy. How about a final run-down of reasons to donate to the fund drive, just for old times' sake? 1. Because everyone who donates gets entered into our fund drive prize draw, which includes too many signed books, advance books, or first edition books to mention, plus assorted artworks and other goodies. You've probably got about a 1 in 6 chance of winning something. 2. Because if you're in the US, your donations are tax-deductible: Strange Horizons has received 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status from the US Internal Revenue Service. 3. Because Strange Horizons has an all-volunteer staff, every penny you donate goes to our contributors and our running costs. 4. Because if you donate during the fund drive, you'll get an ebook of our fund drive special. Of course, you could also support us at Patreon and get an ebook each month. 5. Because, to be boringly corny about it, we're a magazine that believes that in the twenty-first century, speculative fiction must be a global, inclusive tradition, and to that end we aim to showcase work that challenges and delights us, by new and established writers from diverse backgrounds and with diverse concerns. 6. And because, further to #5 above, if you donate you'll be helping us to do more, from translations to interactive fiction. Here's that link again. There's probably only one hour, fifty-eight minutes and thirteen seconds left now.
