About Kameron Hurley

Hello, folks! I'm thrilled to see that you made your way to this Patreon page. I have big plans for the future of weird and wild fiction, I hope you'll be a part of it! 

I’m Kameron Hurley, author of the time-traveling mindfuck The Light Brigade, the lesbians-in-space organic worldship space opera The Stars are Legion, the bugpunk science fiction noir God’s War trilogy and The Worldbreaker Saga, a fantasy epic of sentient trees, blood magic, and parallel universes colliding. I also write regular columns for Locus Magazine and I am best known on the internet for writing the award-winning essay "We Have Always Fought" which appears in the essay collection The Geek Feminist Revolution.

As of right now, this Patreon,  PayPal tips, and my book royalties and book payments are the only thing keeping me, my spouse, my spouse's grandmother, and our three dogs in care, groceries, and kibble.

So EVERY ONE OF YOU is pretty much a hero as far as this household is concerned. It's YOUR support that makes it possible for me to make a living as an artist. No small feat! It's why I call my fans and supporters  Hurley’s Heroes

Subscribers receive digital copies of the stories made possible by this Patreon (monthly as well as years of archival stories!), plus additional monthly rewards at various backer and milestone levels.  Behind-the-scenes videos, dog photos, private chat channels, a monthly writing Q&A, and so much more! Choose the rewards that work for you.

I write no more than one short story each month, and patrons are only charged during months when I produce a story. I keep patrons updated if there's a month that I have to skip for health or other reasons.

I’ve got a chronic illness, so I know that time is precious and these are the years when I'm going to be doing my best work. The amount of time I get to devote to these projects is totally up to you. Every dollar counts! Thanks so much, heroes. 

BONUS: Every new subscriber receives the collected archival editions of the stories created here. Currently that 32 tales of wonder! Not bad for a buck+ huh?

So, what are you waiting for? Welcome to the heroes! 
$3,182.64 of $5,000 per short story

Once we reach this milestone, I will hold a 60-90 minute LIVE HANGOUT/Q&A/DRUNK PAINTING EPISODE for ALL PATRONS! This will be a ONE TIME MEGA EVENT, likely via Patreon's streaming platform or Periscope, in which everyone can ask questions, interact with each other via the chat window, meet the dogs in real time, and raise a glass with me (you KNOW I will be drinking. I will probably bring up my fav bottles to talk about).

Let's make it an event to remember, folks!
