Help me translate the science fiction short story Another Day into English!
My name is Eva Holmquist, and I’m a Swedish science fiction and fantasy writer. I just love short stories and I’ve written a lot which has been published in different anthologies and in web magazines. However, only two are available in English.
I get a lot of questions about when my stories will be translated, so I’m starting this Kickstarter to check the interest for my stories from English readers. The goal is to get enough funds for the translation of my short story “Another Day”. At the lowest tier for only 15 SEK, which is less than 2 dollars, you get the Advance eBook edition of the short story Another Day. The Kickstarter will run from the 21st of April until the 12th of May.
Hope you want to support it!

“My favorite was Another Day by Eva Holmquist. A nice short story about a hybrid (human robot) who is used as a slave and her longing for a free life with the one she loves.” – Carola Strömstedt
“The short story is deep even though it is short & gives me the feeling of romance & science fiction vibes with a dystopian touch.” – Patricia Lule Hamilton
