This is a friendly reminder that the World SF Travel Fund’s campaign to send me to World Fantasy Convention is going and entering its final week (and a bit). There are 9 days left and we have raised a little over $2000 and are in need of a little over $900.
Here is what the campaign is all about:
“Haralambi Markov is a Bulgarian critic, editor, and author. He is a Clarion workshop 2014 graduate, and his stories were published inn Tor.com and elsewhere. As a young writer on the road to professional publication, writing in English as a second language and coming from the former Eastern bloc, we believe he is an ideal candidate for the fund, and will both benefit the convention and himself with being able to travel to WFC this year, which is a professional gathering of the genre’s foremost practitioners.
The Fund has set up this Kickstarter Project with the hope of bringing Haralambi Markov, as well as next year’s recipient, over to World Fantasy, and in the process documenting Markov’s journey from Bulgaria to Saratoga Springs, through a convention report to be made available to all the reward recipients.
The Board, tasked with selecting future candidates, is composed of Lauren Beukes, Aliette de Bodard, Nnedi Okorafor, Ekaterina Sedia, and Charles Tan, reflecting the truly international nature of the SF world today. Administrators are Sean Wallace and Lavie Tidhar.”
