Enough Space for Everyone Else is a sci-fi anthology showcasing comics, prose, and illustration both by and about people of diverse genders, racial and ethnic identities, socioeconomic backgrounds, and more.
Brought to you by Hope Nicholson’s Bedside Press, the publisher of The Secret Loves of Geek Girls, Enough Space needs to meet a $33,000 Kickstarter fundraising goal by July 16 in order to go to print.
“Many fans (and potential fans) of sci-fi have a hard time finding stories that reflect their identities and aren’t focused on the same tropes—specifically, conquest, imperialism, and war. While there is certainly room for those stories, they shouldn’t dominate a genre that is supposed to be about infinite possibilities,” says co-editor J.N. Monk
“That’s why I set out to create an anthology that invited some of the most talented up-and-coming writers and artists of the day to really get creative, and to explore some of the untapped potential for who and what the sci-fi and space fiction genres can be about,” they continued.
The anthology features the work of both established talent and that of up-and-coming creators as well.
Enough Space For Everyone Else includes:
- Cover Art by Eryn Williams
- Art by Kodi Steffen, Claudia Rinofner, Zoe Maxine, and Elemei
- New Comics by Megan Kearney, Alice Gao, Z Akhmetova, Kristen Gudsnuk/Benito Cereno, Niki Smith/Kori Handwerker, Anna Landin, Constanza Yovaniniz, Debbie Fong, Caitlin Major, Megan Gedris, Mari Costa, Patabot, Sigmund Reimann, Jon Vanneste, Jeff Laclede, Eryn Williams, Simon Lindenthaler, Diana Nock, Courtney Hahn, Tod Wills, VER, and Sarah Winifred Searle
