Received the galleys for “Fantasy For Good: A Charitable Anthology” today and I’ve got to say it looks awesome. The release date has been set for 9th December 2014 and the Kindle edition is available to pre-order already. The trade paperback from Nightscape Press will also be pre-orderable soon (see links below).
All proceeds from the sale of this anthology go directly to Colon Cancer Alliance, a charity dedicated to the prevention of this deadly disease, as well as funding research and supporting patients who suffer from it. Having now read the moving foreword by the editors Richard Salter and Jordan Ellinger, the introduction by Trent Zelazny about his father’s silent battle with this cancer and the very important lessons he’s drawn from it, hearing about the involvement of Jay Lake and others touched by this terrible disease — it’s very much clear this anthology has been created from the heart. I hope it does really well and raises a hell of a lot of money for CCA.
Here is the table of contents. I’m humbled and feel privileged to be a part of it.
