Women Destroy Science Fiction! — Kickstarter Backers

We could not have put this issue together without the help and support of our wonderful Kickstarter backers—all 2801 of them!

One of the secondary Kickstarter rewards allowed backers to add their name to a list of donors that would appear in the published issue. About half of our backers chose this reward. We’re excited to recognize them on the list below. (Note: Because some people did not include a last name, or included a business name, or Twitter handle, we have this sorted by first name.)
