Clash of the Geeks
Just wanted to let everyone know about the Clash of the Geeks anthology. Here is the blurb from the website:
Wil Wheaton, John Scalzi and Subterranean Press are proud to announce the publication of Clash of the Geeks, a special and fantastical electronic chapbook featuring stories by Wheaton, Scalzi, New York Times bestseller Patrick Rothfuss, Norton Award winner and Hugo Best Novel nominee Catherynne M. Valente, Hugo and Nebula Award nominee Rachel Swirsky and others, for the benefit of the Michigan/Indiana affiliate of the Lupus Alliance of America. The chapbook is free to download, but voluntary payment is strongly encouraged, via Paypal or by tax-deductible donation forms, both linked to later in this entry. All proceeds from this chapbook will go to the Michigan/Indiana affiliate of the Lupus Alliance of America. Please enjoy the stories, link your friends to this page — and give!
Here is a link where you can download the book for free, or make a donation to the Lupus Foundation.
As someone with a mild form of Lupus this is a charity that is very personal to me, and I encourage everyone to donate or at least read some of the stories. I mean how often do you get to read about a unicorn-pegasus-kitten aka Unigaten, Kigarn, Pegicten...hmmm I'll work on the names a bit. Anyway it's pretty cool.
