Want to help out the victims of Sandy AND get a great-looking SF&F anthology including stories by Robert Silverberg, Michael J. Sullivan, Bradley Beaulieu, Paolo Bacigalupi, and a bunch of others? Check out this charity anthology on Indiegogo!
Just think how much attention this very worthwhile cause would get if, say, Brandon Sanderson or Patrick Rothfuss would be willing to contribute a story? Hint hint…
PS I don’t really make it habit to post about or promote Kickstarter/IndieGoGo projects here, but having lived in that part of the world for almost a decade, this one is near and dear to my heart. Also, a friend of mine is taking a very active part in getting this thing off the ground, so for once, I’m making an exception. Go contribute!
Thank you so much for writing something up about this anthology. Really, I’m not kidding. Everyone who helps spread the word is an angel in my eyes.
I grew up in that neck of the woods. The eye of the hurricane passed not too far from my hometown, and all the places where I spent time (we went to the beach in Jersey a lot) are demolished. It’s heartbreaking, and it feels good to be able to help out however I can.
Again, thanks for talking about this on your website, because I know it’s not something you’d usually do, which makes this post even more wonderful.
You’re very welcome, Sarah. I lived in Manhattan from ’95 until ’04 (through several blizzards, a couple of major blackouts and 9/11) and I occasionally worked in NJ offices at the time, so it’s a part of the world that’s near and dear to my heart. The anthology is a wonderful initiative, and I truly hope it does well.
