About

Eita! is a magazine that publishes Brazilian science fiction and fantasy stories in English, for the enjoyment of an international audience. We hope to spread contemporary Brazilian stories towards readers overseas and take our place in the worldwide SFF scenario.

We have a LOT of stories to tell. And we don't want to wait for someone to recognize us, translate us and accept us in a competitive market that inadvertly gives advantage to native English speakers. We aim to create our own space.

Our opening issue will include four short stories by contemporary writers and a story by a classic writer. We can't tell you who they are, because we don't know yet! We're shooting for semiannual issues, but that might change if you give us a lot of money (so please do).

We literally have no budget other than what you give us through this Patreon, which we'll split equally amongst our writers for our issue. You only get charged when we release our latest issue.

But what does Eita mean?


EITA is an interjection spoken (or, more commonly, shouted) from all corners of Brazil. It’s an extremely versatile word that can express surprise, pity, confusion, dismay or joy.

Here follows a few applied examples of everyday usage:

The ship is about to be stranded in open space because a crew member did something stupid?
“Eita! I should not have pissed off the ship’s asshole navigation AI!”

The realm was saved by a mage that tamed a dragon in an unconventional way?
“Eita! I would never guess dragons also go crazy with catnip!”

Someone can suddenly make their every wish come true just by thinking about it?
“Eita! Life can be so good!”

Eita! is at the very core of the Brazilian language, and it is one of the very, very few expressions that can be heard in every corner of our continental, multicultural country. Eita! represents Brazil more than soccer. Or Samba. Or even Bossa Nova (which you probably know as elevator music).

But most importantly is that Eita! is also what we expect you to say when you read the stories from the amazing Brazilian authors this issue is packing, we want you to be amazed by these tales as we were when we first read it.

Forget Wow. Wow is the past. Eita! is the future.
Goals
$56.69 of $300 per issue
Once we hit this goal we'll be paying $75 to each of our writers. This means that, for a story of 1500 words, that'll be five cents per word - a respectable pay, that will get us halfway towards being a semiprozine.
