Former Monty Python star Terry Jones will become the first author to have his project published by the Unbound crowdfunded publishing project
His book, Evil Machines, comprises 13 tales parodying man's
relationship with technology. It received the minimum number of pledges
required through the Unbound website. First editions of the book will be available from the Unbound site and any trade editions will be published by Faber.
Unbound was created by "QI" writers John Mitchinson and Dan Kieran and Crap Towns
author Justin Pollard and launched at the Hay Festival. Writers pitch
their project directly to the public, who can then donate between £10
and £250 to fund the project in return for special rewards.
