I figured that this would be of interest to the community! Tobias Buckell is currently holding a Kickstart Project for funding the fourth book in his Carribean-inspired sci-fi series, which started with Crystal Rain. Of the $10,000 needed, his project has successfully passed the $5,000 mark, and you can still participate in this project until October 19th 2:56pm EDT.

Kickstarter page for The Apocalypse Ocean:

"One of the most frequent questions I get is this: 'When will you write a sequel to Crystal Rain/Ragamuffin/Sly Mongoose?' The truth is, I have most of the outline for the fourth book already written, as well as a chunk of the opening already done. And I think it would be great to see it fully written...If enough people commit to backing it, readers will get an awesome eBook (I create eBooks for freelance income on the side), or a great hardcover (with the help of a great designer), with even cooler rewards for those who want to read the book as it is being written or who want to leave their mark on the Xenowealth universe.

...

If we can raise $10,000, upon completion of the novel (I will start writing it January 1st at the latest, and will finish in June), backers receive their rewards (those backing the project for above $250 get to read along live, however) once the book is finished and turned into an eBook and limited edition hardcover."
