Dance Like a Monkey for CJ Henderson

Folks,

 

We don’t just want to do something, we want to do the very best we can. Right now CJ is laying in a hospital bed while they pump poison into his veins for four straight days…96 hours. Can you imagine that? Forget about how utterly horrible it would make you feel to have that stuff entering your body. Forget about how uncomfortable it would be to stay in the same place for all that time wondering if this time it’s actually going to work. Just think about how expensive that must be to lay in that bed for four days constantly getting medication. My husband was in the hospital for just the weekend getting saline in his veins and that was over $25,000 for just two nights of basically salt water.

 

CJ doesn’t have a job that gives him medical leave, or disability, or even basic health care. If CJ can’t work, CJ doesn’t get paid. Can you imagine worrying about that while lying in that hospital bed? Worrying about your wife and daughter, your mother-in-law, all who depend on you to provide their basic needs? Heck, worrying about all the convention organizers and fans you are disappointing each time you have no choice but to cancel a show…that’s what CJ’s doing. I know because CJ is my friend and I hear these things.

 

Let me say it again, we DON’T just want to do something, we want to do the VERY BEST we can. That doesn’t just mean meeting our campaign goal. That doesn’t mean hitting a few stretch goals. That means blowing them all out of the water. We need your help for that. We are providing our time, effort, and talent for absolutely NO compensation beyond the satisfaction that we are doing everything we can to help our friend, a man who has given so much to the fannish community in time and enjoyment and brilliant writing. In answering the hopeful author’s questions and offering guidance to those just starting out. CJ doesn’t just look out for himself, he keeps an eye out for all of us and does a good turn where he can.

 

We aren’t asking much, just return the favor. Chip in a few bucks to get a fantastic anthology. Post or Like or Share our updates on what we are doing and why. Maybe even dance a little…for a good cause. All it takes is a click of a button. Maybe one day of bringing your lunch to work. The sacrifice of the smallest bit of your dignity. Not much. But together think what we can accomplish with those little efforts. Everyone who pledges even just $10 gets an anthology full of high-quality stories by authors at the top of the industry. If we hit stretch goals there are a ton of perks that come with it. Free ebooks. Free music. Free audiobooks. Extra stories. We take this high enough and you get more than one anthology and CJ gets just a little bit of breathing room.

 

Keep those monkeys dancing and keep those nickels coming!

Ghosts by Gaslight: Stories of Steampunk and Supernatural Suspense - 'Jack Dann', 'Nick Gevers' El título es engañoso, aquí no hay mucho steampunk en realidad. Lo que me agrada porque no soy muy fan del steampunk y mucho menos en historias cortas. Solo escogí este libro porque son autores que me gustan y es el mes del miedo.A estas alturas ya no tengo que decir que en las antologías tienen sus buenas y malas historias, pero en este caso son algunas bastante buenas y el resto decentes. Y sin steampunk, afortunadamente.

Ghosts by Gaslight: Stories of Steampunk and Supernatural Suspense - 'Jack Dann', 'Nick Gevers' These stories are mostly not steampunk, and often not ghostly, either. It is a good collection, but read it if you like Victorian and Edwardian supernatural ambiance, not because you're in the mood for pistons and phantasms.

Ghosts by Gaslight: Stories of Steampunk and Supernatural Suspense - 'Jack Dann', 'Nick Gevers' Waffling between three and four stars; will sit down and crunch it later. Some very good stories, although I think that some of them (the Ransom Hollow story, f'r ex) don't quite hit the note of steampunk for me. Still, definitely worth picking up.
