Why Sponsor the Shoreline of Infinity?

Because that’s where we are. Humankind has trampled our way across the lands, and now we are mooching about on the sands, squinting out across the Ocean of Infinity before us. And we don’t know what to do.

You can offer a helping hand.

Science Fiction has always asked the big questions, more so than in any other form of literature. Where have we come from? Where are we going? Where do we want to be? What’s going to happen? How will we cope? What’s the story?

And there’s no doubt scientists have been influenced by SF, as much as science is a source of inspiration for SF writers.

You can help save the world.

Arthur C Clarke said back in 1970:

One of the biggest roles of science fiction is to prepare people to accept the future without pain and to encourage a flexibility of mind. Politicians should read science fiction, not westerns and detective stories.

(The Making of Kubrick’s 2001)

And that still holds true as we consider the effects of climate change and stripping the Earth’s resources beyond its means. And the rest.

And that’s why Shoreline of Infinity. We have stories that explore that uncertain future. We play around with the big ideas and the little ones. We pay writers and artists to tell us stories to inspire us, give us hope, provide some laughs. Or to scare the stuffing out of us. We pay for good stories: we want to entertain, here on the Shoreline. We want to read how people cope in our exotic new world, we want to be in their minds, in their bodies, in their souls.

You can support those creative people.

As you sit with us around the fire of driftwood, sparks floating to mingle with the stars in the sky, we can share these tales, and remember one of the greatest gifts we have as human beings is our infinitely expandable imagination and sense of wonder.

If you want to join us as we look across the expanse of Infinity, please dip your hand into your virtual pocket and sponsor our magazine. Sponsor stories, art, whole issues and get your name in there amongst the visionaries.

Thank you for your time.

Chrono Receptor
$2 or more per month

Stella Conlator Guild Chrono Receptors are trained in conscious manipulation of their right posterior cortical and hippocampal regions of the brain. When the resultant psychic powers are channelled through their currently experimental transtemporal receiver arrays, they are capable of receiving sound waves from approximately 10080 minutes into the future.

In doing so, these STG members are able to spread the profound sound of SF even quicker to distant places.

⏳ Chrono Receptors receive Soundwave episodes 1 week early.  When one episode goes public, the next will be available to you on that day.

Receptor Interrolyst
$5 or more per month

Suspended in their articulated R.I.W.s that whirr in complex, seemingly random but never colliding patterns along the tracks that line the inner walls of the spherical Orrery-Lingua, the hooded Receptor Interrolysts perform their inscrutable yet vital work.

Drawn from the already talented ranks of the Chrono Receptors, the Receptor Interrolysts are Receptors that have demonstrated an uncanny ability to identify hidden meanings and profound revelations in language that 99% of most species would only be able to interpret at a comparatively surface level.

Granted access to extended interros, the Receptor Interrolysts perform a great and unique service to those who receive Soundwave. By parsing the deepest possible meaning from Sonic Space interros they relate them in ways understandable to the mortal mind.

Thus every last drop of wisdom is wrung from the words of interees, maximising the potency of the healing power of sci-fi they bring.

⏳ Receptor Interrolysts receive Soundwave episodes 1 week early. 


👂 Receptor Interrolysts get extended Sonic Space interviews.

Goals
10 of 1000 patrons
With 1000 patrons, Shoreline of Infinity will have a verifiable circulation of 1000 copies per issue. This would then make our magazine a qualifying publication so that our published writers become eligible to join the Science Fiction Writers of America and that would make them all very happy.
