The following is huge news for a number of reasons.
Foremost, it's an incredible community action to raise money for one of my favorite musicians, S.J. Tucker, who is undergoing a health crisis without health insurance.
Second, read the list of contributors carefully. Some of my very favorite authors have submitted stories, including Neil Gaiman, Holly Black, Charles de Lint, Phil Brucato, and Catherynne M. Valente. (The other authors are totally cool too – the list above just happens to make my geek engine rev particularly loudly.)
So please, consider picking up a copy of the book – it's for a great cause. Also, check out the saveours00j community, pick up a few CDs, and help support an extraordinary artist going through difficult times.
