COLLIDING WORLDS Kickstarter Campaign

100 Science Fiction Stories…

Fifty from Kris, fifty from me, in a five volume set.

Colliding Worlds

This is us having a great time. We have also talked about doing joint collections of some sort of another, and then Kris came up with the idea of us putting 100 of our science fiction stories in the same set of five books called COLLIDING WORLDS.

Really, if you have a few minutes, watch the video. We talk about our writing process a little as well.

Each book will have ten science fiction stories from Kris and ten from me. You can get all five volumes in electronic edition, trade paper, or a signed-limited to 100 copies hardback set.

WORKSHOPS… That’s right, we have in this one the special Kickstarter workshop, only this time two of them.

These two workshops are each three weeks long and you write a story as the third assignment that we will read. You have your choice of taking the workshops in March or April.

HOW TO WRITE A SCIENCE FICTION SHORT STORY… Focused on writing science fiction short stories. This will cover different areas than both the short story workshop and the science fiction regular workshop.

HOW TO WRITE ABOUT THE VASTNESS OF SPACE... This is my favorite because so many writers don’t know how to relay to readers the vastness of space, from describing a vast desert here on Earth to vast distances in space. So many writers don’t even begin to understand the size of a solar system, let along a region of space, let alone the size of a galaxy or the distances between galaxies. Writers just get it wrong more times than not, thus this workshop.

So you want to read 100 of Kris and my science fiction short stories in five volumes, this is the place. And you can add on the workshops or other fun stuff.

Here is the video… I have to admit, we had far too much fun on this one. (grin)


We funded very quickly and now about 12 hours after we launched, we are gaining on the first stretch reward. So great fun, folks. Thanks for the support. Really means a great deal when we are doing a project that is something we have wanted to do for a while.

    Great video, Dean!

    Can I ask whether the two three-week workshop rewards include a short-story assignment? And the timing of the one on distances?

    • dwsmith

      Yes, both have short story assignments that Kris and I will read and you have a choice of taking either workshop starting on March 2nd for three weeks or April 6th.
