Thanks very much for your interest in supporting Beneath Ceaseless Skies. There are several ways you can support us.
♦ ♦ ♦
Beneath Ceaseless Skies is dedicated to paying pro rates for great literary adventure fantasy and making it available for free.
To do that, we ask for your help. Our parent company, Firkin Press, is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization granted tax-exempt status by the IRS, so your donation to BCS is tax-deductible (consult a tax professional for details). All donations go to pay authors and artists.
To donate once, at any amount, click the Paypal “Donate” button below.
To donate monthly, click the Paypal “Subscribe” button of your choice.
Apr. 20, 2018: from now until May 11, during our 250th Issue Ebook Subscription Drive, any new donors who use the ‘subscription’ donation option above, where you donate a small amount every month, we will count you in our Subscription Drive’s tally of new subscribers, and you will be helping us toward our Drive’s stretch goals.

Buy a Kindle / E-Reader Subscription or BCS Anthologies
All BCS fiction is available for free on our site, but we also sell a Kindle / E-Reader subscription and several BCS ebook anthologies.
The Kindle / E-Reader subscription has direct automatic delivery to your Kindle or other device. It’s available from WeightlessBooks.com, an indie ebook store run by the folks from Small Beer Press.
The 12-month subscription has 26 issues and costs only $15.99. Some readers buy it for the convenience of having the issues automatically appear on their e-reader, but others buy it to help support BCS.
(Our 2017 Ebook Subscription Drive is going on now. Every new or renewing ebook subscriber before June 2 will help us toward our Drive goals: to raise our word count for submissions to 12,000, 14,000, or even 20,000 words!)
The BCS anthologies, including the Best of BCS volumes and the new steampunk anthology Ceaseless Steam, are available through WeightlessBooks.com and Kindle Store, B&N, Smashwords, iBooks, and more. They each have 15-18 stories and cost only $2.99-$3.99.
