Beneath Ceaseless Skies is dedicated to paying professional rates for great literary adventure fantasy, by new authors and established ones, and making it available online for free.

To keep the magazine going, we ask for your help.  The editors of BCS contribute their time for free, but the money to pay authors and artists comes from donations.

Our parent company, Firkin Press, is a non-profit organization granted 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status by the U.S. Internal Revenue Service, so your donation to BCS is tax-deductible. All donations go exclusively to pay authors and artists for their work in BCS.

How to Donate

To make a single donation, click the PayPal “Donate” button below. (You don’t need to have a Paypal account.)

To make a smaller regular donation every month, at your choice of several donation amounts, click the Paypal “Subscribe” button.

We welcome donations of any amount. With your permission, we will include your name or a pseudonym on our list of Donors.

Our Donor Levels

As you donate, no matter how much you donate at once, you’ll grow in our esteem if you keep donating over time.  So our donor levels are cumulative—based on the total of all your donations, not just the most recent one.  They are:

  • $1-20 – Honored Guest of Beneath Ceaseless Skies
  • $21-99 – Friend of Beneath Ceaseless Skies
  • $100-299 – Ambassador of Beneath Ceaseless Skies
  • $300+ – Noble of Beneath Ceaseless Skies
  • At this donor level, you have enabled a full story to be published in BCS , and you can choose an available story title to be listed with your name.

Your total will continue to accrue for as long as you choose to donate.

To see our Donors and the BCS stories they have chosen to list alongside their names, visit our Donors page.
