All the King’s Men anthology

Refugees marooned in deep space swap stories in this 700 page sci-fi anthology.

ALL THE KING’S MEN is a comics and prose anthology focused on ordinary people struggling to make sense of their lives and dreams in a galaxy torn apart by civil war. The book is 700 pages long, printed in black-and-white, and contains two dozen science fiction stories, ranging from deeply personal character studies to action-packed parables.

Each of them is fleeing something different, but they’ve all come to the same place. When their ship is attacked and marooned in deep space, three dozen refugees pass the time by sharing stories. Things that have happened to them, events they’ve witnessed, and rumours they’ve heard.

As time passes and despair sets in, they must rely upon each other to survive. But when the chips are down, will they all be pulling in the same direction?

Featuring stories from two dozen brilliant writers from around the world, All The King’s Men takes a look at the lives of those on the periphery, ordinary people struggling to make sense of their lives and dreams in a galaxy torn apart by civil war.

This is one for sci-fi fans who like characters and humanity at the forefront of their books.

Why you should support
All the King’s Men anthology?

All The King’s Men is an important book. Not only does it aim to be a landmark title in the field of anthologies, but it also represents a professional debut for around half of its writers. The success of this book, therefore, becomes their success.

Which resources do you need for the project?

Any funding obtained from any source will go into marketing the book. Marketing can include such things as convention attendance, advertising, printing and sending review copies, PR pro hiring, etc.

Where will All the King’s Men anthology
go in the future?

I’d like to take All The King’s Men to a convention in the USA. I’d like to donate a hundred copies to libraries in public secondary schools and colleges. I’d like to send a copy around the world and get all the contributors to sign it, then auction it off and donate the proceeds to refugee rights charities.

Lots of fun ideas, none of which are likely to yield a profit, and all of which need capital behind them.
