If you're thinking that there isn't enough literature out there that entertains the notion of a bicycle utopia where women rule the world, then you're right. Fear not though, a new Kickstarter campaign is on a feminist crusade to change that.
Elly Blue Publishing in the US have launched a crowd-funding project to get their collection of short stories published. Brilliantly titled Biketopia: Feminist Bicycle Science Fiction Stories, this anthology features 11 short stories to feed your imagination.
With some thought-provoking and entertaining plots, you'll find yourself taking sides and becoming additively invested in feminist views in the realm of science fiction:
- When your health is closely monitored during a pregnancy, who gets to decide if bicycling is healthy or dangerous for your unborn child?
- How do you survive the day to day in a community where you have zero freedoms, including freedom of movement?
- When your agrarian society relies on bikes and now you're at war with the city where the factory is, how do you replace your broken spoke?
- Is the sexy stranger who rode into your desolate desert oasis a man or a woman, or does it even matter?
Pledging $10 will secure you a copy once published, and by pledging more, you can collect yourself additional biker babe novels and short stories to keep you going through vacations and down time.
