While writers do a lot of their work alone, we do belong to a community that includes those others out there sitting before their notebooks, typewriters, and keyboards, grinding out the fantastic for the enjoyment of others. We may not know them all and we may not see them, but we know they are there.
Our fans are also another community that do a lot to support us out there as well.
In times of adversity, whether we know the person or not, authors and fans come together. So I figured I would take some time and do my small bit as well.
FACT - the Fandom Association of Central Texas is having a Fundraiser Auction on 7/19 on behalf of science fiction author Aaron Allston for a medical fund. Donations of books have been taken from authors all over to hold an auction to help with the bills. There are also means to make direct donations to the fund if you can't make it out to Georgetown, TX.
All the info you might need can be found directly at the FACT website for location, time, and other means to help.
Let's show Aaron an overwhelming flood of support for all the years of fun he's given fandom!
Here's hoping for a super fast recovery as well!
