The Asteroid Belt Almanac is a collection of essays, fiction and other creative works about our interaction with science and technology published by the Head and The Hand Press, the Fishtown-based craft publisher that last year launched a vending machine for creative writing.
Currently, they’re a third of their way to a $3,000 crowdfunding campaign to print the first release. Support the crowdfunding campaign here.
The campaign’s lowest threshold is $15, which gets you a copy of the book, which includes a story from Geekadelphia cofounder Eric Smith, a piece about composing music in the digital age by musician Sean Hoots, an essay about the advancements in ultrasound technology by freelance writer Sarah Grey and a poem about students exploring the bounds of Google Translate by Sara Graybeal of YouthBuild Charter School. Full disclosure, the anthology also includes an essay on social entrepreneurship by Technical.ly editor Christopher Wink.
