Kickstart the Week: Kaiju Rising: Age of Monsters Anthology

Unless your name is Luke Milton, Pacific Rim was probably your thing. I laughed at the supermarket last week when I saw that there was an official movie novelization for the movie, but that doesn't necessarily mean I don't want to read about a lot of large monsters wreaking having and laying waste on society at large.

Enter Kaiju Rising. Ragnarok Publications is looking at trying to crowdfund an anthology of fiction based around the concept in Pacific Rim. This isn't some fly-by-night venture, either - they're looking to pay a professional rate to the writers, get some cool artwork, and do this thing right. I'm impressed with what they're trying to do anyway, and it turns out that they've already got some great writers signed on already, including James Lovegrove, Peter Clines, Larry Correia, and Jonathan Wood. Stretch goals include more art, more stories, more's pretty solid.

Most of the time, this feels more like a cash in, Asylum-style action. Considering the pedigree and resume of those involved with this piece, I think we have a winner here. Looking forward to hopefully getting this one funded.
