A lot is happening behind the scenes for Women of Futures Past, the book that started this website. Baen is going to invest in some serious marketing on this, so we’re getting ready to do that.

One thing I want to do is send advance reader copies (ARCs) to places that ran articles stating that women have only just started writing science fiction. I have a list of places to send ARCs that I’ve compiled, but I need your help finding a few others. If there are publications that you’re aware of that ran articles like that in the past 3-5 years, please let me know. You can either reach me through the contact form on this site or in the comments below. Please include a link.

Thank you!

    Kistine, (I almost used your initials, yikes!)
    I only have a review blog at matryoschka.com with not much reach, so I’m not asking for an ARC. Keep the notices comeing so I can buy when available.

    From Samantha Silliman:

    Women in SF
    Hi there, I’m a LA based producer working on an independent, sci-fi short film entitled THE LONE DRONE. I’d love to tell you about our project and find out if you would be interested in the sharing the film with the Woman in Science Fiction community.See below for details: SYNOPSIS: The Lone Drone is a short, live action film set in the not-so-distant future when consumer drones are as commonplace in households as televisions are today. The story follows an artificially intelligent drone called T.O.D. (Task Oriented Drone) that is user controlled and designed to assist a family in a dull metropolis. When T.O.D. is confronted with a moral dilemma it cannot compute, the drone removes itself from the situation and flies away from the city, experiencing free will for the first time. The drone wanders to a great desert where it is discovered by Sara — an inventive, young girl who spends her time playing alone in her desert backyard and creating toys out of scrap materials. Sara finds the drone to be the most wonderful thing she has ever encountered and takes it home. Equipped with a desire to be free from her repressive home and a pipe dream to save her broken family, Sara and the drone run away together. Along the bumpy journey, the two discover the true meaning of freedom and friendship between humankind and machine. IMPACT: Our hope is that The Lone Drone will entertain audiences as well as ignite conversation around the development of modern technology, the nature of artificial intelligence (A.I.), and the role of women in our technological future. We would love to hear your thoughts on the film! Thank you for your consideration. Feel free to check out our campaign page on IndieGoGo to learn more and watch our pitch video.
