Mythica and Cirsova – Successful Crowdfunding Campaigns Winding Down

Posted by Rampant Coyote on June 23, 2016

I’d posted when these launched, but I thought I’d post a reminder. These aren’t mine… I’m at best peripherally involved.

Mythica5Anyway – first up, the final (?) Mythica movie in the series … Mythica 5: The Godslayer. If you haven’t seen any of the films yet and are a fantasy buff… give the first one a watch. I can’t promise you’ll like it, but it has gained quite a fan following. The final movie has already cleared its original goal by a substantial margin going into its last 2 days, and have already unlocked a stretch goal of development on a board game.

My peripheral involvement is being friends with one of the producers, and previously worked with him on the “Massively Multiplayer RTS”, Saga. Which, BTW, is the same world as Mythica’s setting, I understand. So… there’s that.

Mythica 5: The Godslayer – Kickstarter Campaign

cirsova_num2Next up: Cirsova Magazine, issue 2.  It’s a magazine of heroic fantasy and science fiction, with an emphasis on pulp-era subgenres of Planetary Romance and Sword-and-Planet. Think classic works by Leigh Brackett, Jack Vance, Edgar Rice Burroughs, Fritz Leiber and Robert E. Howard.

This is really more of a pre-order and a convenient(ish) way to sell advertising space. It’s quite likely that the only way to get a paper copy of the magazine is via this pre-order (unless it does very well and warrants reprints). I guess that’s how you keep costs down in an era print fiction magazines have become scarce. But there’s just over a week left in the campaign, if you are interested.  They’ve already cleared their initial goal, so it’s a go regardless.

As far as peripheral involvement… I have a story in a later issue of Cirsova. It’s a done deal and has already been paid for it. I just like the magazine so far and want more modern-pulpy goodness in an otherwise scarce (in the modern era) couple of subgenres. I’ve like what I saw enough in the first issue to want to see it continue.
