Fantasy for a Good Cause!

As you know, the devastating tornadoes in Oklahoma earlier this year hit very close to home for me, as in fact they hit the counties (turned "national disaster areas") where my parents and my sister and her family live. Efforts continue to rebuild and recover.

I am thrilled to be a part of the new Writers for Relief: An Anthology Written by Fantasy's Finest to Benefit Those Who Suffered in Oklahoma, edited by Davey Beauchamp and Stuart Jaffe. All proceeds benefit the ongoing recovery efforts related to the Oklahoma tornado disasters. This collection includes cover art from the legendary Bob Eggleton and fiction from some of the finest in the genre, including Kevin J. Anderson, Mike Resnick, Ben Bova, Todd McCaffrey, Stephen Euin Cobb, Jason Sandford, Bobby Nash, John Hartness, Edmund Schubert, Danny Birt, Jaym Gates, Gray Rinehart, Janine Spendlove, and Eugie Foster. Oh, and I'm in there, too! :)

Hey, this would make a great gift, wouldn't it? And it's almost time for the holidays! I'd be grateful if you'd help us spread the word. Thanks so much!

This would be better if they'd spelled my last name right. (It's right on the inside of the book, but not on the outside.) C'est la vie.

Best,

Woe! I guess that makes you an official member of the Samuel R. Delany club, eh?

Not actually related, but I figured it might interest you. I came across this blog post where the writer came up with a Lovecraftian rationale for Lord Byron's clubfoot.

This wins... everything. My favorite line: "Perhaps all that business about occult powers and summoning spirits in Manfred wasn't just poetic license."

Byron: mad, bad, dangerous to know, and bringing sexy back to the Innsmouth Look.

Thanks so much for this. I laughed out loud.
