Book View Café has launched their benefit anthology, Breaking Waves. All proceeds from the sale of this book will go to the Gulf Coast Oil Spill Relief Fund of the Greater New Orleans Foundation.
The collection features over thirty stories by a wide range of best-selling and award-winning authors, including a previously-unpublished poem from Nebula and Hugo award-winner Ursula K. Le Guin, as well as a chapter from Rachel Carson’s groundbreaking book The Sea Around Us. Authors contributing stories of environmental rescue and recovery include Vonda N. McIntyre, Judith Tarr, Deborah Ross, Sarah Monette, David D. Levine, David Gessner, and Lyda Morehouse, among others. Tiffany Trent and Phyllis Irene Radford edited the collection.
The book is available in epub, pdf, mobi, and prc formats in the Book View Café bookstore and will be coming to the Kindle store soon.
Okay, so why am I mentioning this here? Well, obviously, it's a benefit I believe in, and obviously, there are some major names in this book, so you know it's gotta be good.
But there's another thing.
I'm in it.
Wait. Because I'm still reeling in shock, I have to repeat that. I have stories in this anthology, too.
Not only that, but I sent them two stories, figuring they'd pick the one they preferred...and they took both of them. I think I'm the only person with two stories in there: A reprint of "The Power to Change the Shape of the Land" (originally in Sword & Sorceress XVI) and a new (older) story called "I Sing a Song of Mourning." (Also known as, the two stories with the longest titles I've come up with.) Both are fantasy, for those of you who eschew the steamier side of fiction.
Please buy a copy, folks. If not for my stories, then for all the other amazing ones in there (look at that TOC!), and for the Gulf. Thanks!
