I can’t keep up with all the milestones we’ve been hitting! Powering on towards 20K and beyond, with the Mother of Invention Kickstarter.

When we hit $18K we announced stretch goals, via this adorable Facebook vid featuring Alisa & Mack. #mackneedsrobots

But if you can’t see the vid, or you prefer your info in typed lettering, here they are:

$21,000 – Dr Frankentastic! Tansy reads Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein as an episodic podcast, starting in September 2017. The twist – she’ll be swapping pronouns to make this a female-driven narrative but changing no other words!

$23,000 – Essays Unbound! 3 artificial intelligence essays commissioned from exciting writers, exploring themes of gender & AI. We have Aliette De Bodard & K. Tempest Bradford signed up, with our 3rd essayist to be announced later.

$24,000 –
Enamel Planet! every backer at $25 or above receives a gorgeous Twelfth Planet Press logo enamel pin with their rewards.

$25,000 – WHO KNOWS? Watch this space for further stretch goal updates.

The super sad-face emoji news is that there are no more knitted robot or hand-stitched feminist bookmark levels. BUT — you can still get these astounding hand-made special rewards at the ridic extravagant Robot Uprising reward level, along with homemade gingerbread robots.
