Elemental: The Tsunami Relief Anthology

Elemental: The Tsunami Relief Anthology

With the terrible consequences of Hurricane Katrina only recently behind us, it's all too easy to forget a much bigger natural disaster, the effects of which are still being felt throughout the coastal and island nations of Southeast Asia. The tsunami that swept across Thailand, Sri Lanka, portions of India, Indonesia and seven other countries during Christmas week in 2004 hit with a force equivalent to the energy released by 23,000 Hiroshima-sized atomic bombs. Nearly 200,000 were killed and two million people made homeless in one day. To this day, over 50,000 people remain unaccounted for.

Well, there's still something you can do to help, and in return, you'll get a kick-ass read, and a beautiful book to show off to friends and neighbors. Writers Steven Savile and Alethea Kontis (who is - by the way - also a buyer at Ingram Book group in Tennessee, an a friend of a friend) have put together an amazing new anthology called Elemental: The Tsunami Relief Anthology. All publisher's and author's profits will be donated to Save the Children's Tsunami Relief Fund.

The list of contributors is impressive andf reads like a Who's Who of SF/F and horror: David Gerrold, Adam Roberts, Esther M. Friesner, Jacqueline Carey, Brian Aldiss, Stel Pavlou, Larry Niven, Kinley MacGregor, Sherrilyn Kenyon, Joe Haldeman, Juliet Marillier, Tim Lebbon, Eric Nylund Lynn Flewelling, Michael Marshall Smith, Brian Herbert & Kevin J. Anderson, Janny Wurts, William C. Dietz, Syne Mitchell, Sharon Shinn, Sean Williams & Shane Dix, Martha Wells, David Drake, and Nina Kiriki Hoffman. The book has been simultaneously pubbed in hardcover and trade paperback. You can read more about the book here.

And if you have a blog, help spread the word!
