When some of the biggest names in the fantasy genre all come together on one project, readers sit up and pay attention. Especially when that project is for such a great cause.
You can read the full story here, but I'll give you a short recap: Shawn Speakman, Terry Brooks' webmaster, was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma in 2011 and doesn't have health insurance. He has accrued a massive medical debt while receiving treatment for his cancer. Terry and a huge list of other fantasy authors (Patrick Rothfuss, Lev Grossman, Robert Jordan, Carrie Vaughn and much, much more!) all decided to write an original short story for an anthology whose sales would all go toward paying off Shawn's medical bills.
There are a limited number of first editions! This anthology makes a fabulous addition to any fantasy library, and also makes a unique gift for the fantasy reader in your life. Plus, you get to help punch cancer in the face. It's a win-win!
