Get Your ELEMENTAL Relief!!


























ALL of the publisher's and authors' profits for this book will be donated to the Save the Children Tsunami Relief Fund.

Some great colleagues of mine have put together an AMAZING book of stories for the benefit of people they've never met, but whom they deeply care for. Spend a few dollars, get a fantastic book and continue the much needed aide to those that suffered in the Tsunami disaster in Southeast Asia in 2005!

From the ELEMENTAL website:

"In the winter of 2005, after the horrifying natural disaster of the tsunami in Southeast Asia, Steven Savile and Alethea Kontis joined forces to raise money to help the distressed survivors and have created Elemental. They solicited SF and fantasy stories, all new and never published elsewhere, from many of the top writers in the genres today, and received immediate responses in the form of the excellent stories here in this book. They created in Elemental one of the most important genre anthologies of the year, but more than that: in giving real value for the purchase price, everyone who sells this book can be proud, and everyone who buys it will be richly rewarded for supporting the tsunami relief effort."
