On September 1, 2011, TJ Klune wrote, "...it's not about the ending, it's about the journey..." in a review of Eric Arvin's Woke Up in a Strange Place. With those words, two men began a journey of love and invited us to ride along. TJ and Eric have shared so much with us: their wonderful books, their smiles, their humor, their lives, and their inspiring devotion to each other. In December of 2013, their journey took a detour when Eric was taken to the emergency room. He survived the surgery to remove a cavernous hemangioma from his brain stem, but the challenges TJ and Eric face are far from over.The authors in this anthology donated their talent as a way to support Eric's continued recovery, to help bring strength to TJ, and to show both of them just how much love surrounds them. Grand Adventures is a diverse range of stories about the journey of love. We’re going on some grand adventures for a great cause. Thank you for joining us.One hundred percent of the income from this volume goes directly to TJ and Eric.Foreword by S.A. McAuleyAn Unexpected Thing by John AmoryThe Twinkie Ignition by J.E.

I didn't have the energy to review each of the stories, but below are the notes about some of my favourites. Overall, this was a nice anthology, and the idea and dedications behind it move it definitely into 4-star territory. ---Wow, third story, "Twinkie Ignition" by J.E. Birk, made me laugh out lo...
I don't think I read any of these that I didn't like. This is by far the best anthology I've read. Usually there are some you like and some you don't. I really enjoyed every one of the stories in this collection. They were very short and each had a happy ever after. Dreamspinner did a great job comp...
