Monday Markets - Humans Wanted Anthology - 31 Dec, 2016 (via @VivianCaethe)

Vivian Caethe is taking preorders for a new SF anthology, "Humans Wanted", and she just opened to submissions for the project via Kickstarter. Her profile says, "When not fighting crime or tinkering with Tarot spreads, Vivian Caethe writes weird fiction, science fiction, fantasy, quirky nonfiction and everything in between." Sounds like a healthy spread of skills and interests to me. From the Kickstarter page:

I am looking for stories that show diverse humanity in a positive light, as useful contributors to the universe. I want humans who build relationships and forge new paths, not humans that destroy or devastate those they meet. Submit stories with strong characters in positive stories that portray humans as useful and generally helpful to the universe. Diversity is encouraged. Any type of science fiction is acceptable (whether it be “hard” or “soft,” “space opera” or “near-future” etc.). Keep your story PG-13 so many readers can enjoy the anthology. Writers of diverse backgrounds are encouraged to submit.

Vivian is paying $250 for pieces between 3,000-6,000 on the topic. Subs in by end of 2016, so get writing.
