Dec. 30th Blog Rally for the Robinsons

UPDATE: I feel like The World's Most Gigantic Ass for not mentioning that Larry's E-book is illustrated by the wonderful Skeet Scienski! http://www.skeetland-art.com/Home_Page.php Sorry Skeet!

I need your help.

Quickly: Science Fiction author Spider Robinson's wife Jeanne is fighting cancer and they're both fighting to pay the bills. 100% of any money used to purchase Larry Santoro's excellent e-book, "Lord Dickens's Declaration," will go directly to the Robinsons. Here's the link:

http://www.starshipsofa.com/shop/lord-dickenss-declaration/

Dec 31st is the last day that people can buy Larry's story. I'd like to end the fundraiser with a bang. Let's get the word out all over the web to let people know on December 30th, there's only one day left to help. Why December 30th? Because if there's only one day left people won't put it off and say, "I'll do it later. I still have time." Make sure you link to the purchase page!

If you've got a blog, please use it. Tell your friends that are into speculative fiction ahead of time and ask them to blog as well. And let's ask the big boys to mention it, like BoingBoing, Gaiman, Scalzi, VanderMeer and whomever else you can think of. One last big push to help some good people in a bad situation.

Please tell me what you've done here, even if it's just sending some e-mails or tweets. Or post a link here to your blogpost. And if you happen to get a confirmation from someone like Cory Doctorow, then the rest of us won't all be bothering him for the same thing.

A few minutes of your time is all I ask and it could make a huge difference for the Robinsons. Thanks!

Gaiman and Poppy Z. Brite have both mentioned and linked to this on Twitter.

Matthew Sanborn Smith said...

We're now exploding on Twitter! You guys are all awesome. Don't forget to stop by and purchase a copy of the e-book. You're helping a hell of a lot for just about five American dollars and you're getting an awesome novella as well! Thanks!

Sue London said...

@Scalzi referred me here earlier and I've set up a post to launch at 7am tomorrow at my blog. Will also tweet on it tomorrow (@cmdrsue). Thanks for organizing!

Misha said...

Sent over from a Twitter post by ferrethimself; Spider and Jeanne got me through some rough years with their writing, happy to give a little back.

Ragani said...

Twittered and reposted on Facebook. Please do a followup as I know many people will want to know how things are going with Spider and Jeanne and how much we were able to help.

Matthew Sanborn Smith said...

Yes, Tony's going to let us know what we raised on the first StarShipSofa show of the year, which I think is January 6th. I'll let everyone know. As to Jeanne's health, I'll post about it as I hear.

Since it's December 30th, I've done my official post. You can read it here:

I just linked my blog post (http://www.divadianes.blogspot.com) to my Facebook profile, hoping some of the non-sf people I'm connected to will be motivated to help. I'm about to post about it to a SF GoodReads group I'm a member of (Beyond Reality).

Huxley Dunsany said...

Done, and happily done at that! Spider is an amazing writer, so if I can help him (and his family) while helping myself to some great Sci-Fi, all the better!

Genrefluent http://www.genrefluent.com/teentalk.htm said...

Bought it -- painless. RT @neilhimself

Matthew Sanborn Smith said...

Thanks, you guys. It's fantastic what a lot of people, doing just a little bit each, can accomplish. That sounds so good I'm going to go tweet it now. :)
