Short Explanation: Science fiction writer and publisher Vera Nazarian is about to lose her home due to various medical and legal expenses. Various folks are fund raising to help her make the payment on her home. My contribution is to offer you a free short story behind the cut below. If you like it, consider donating a small sum via PayPal, which I will send to Vera next Saturday. For the first $1000 sent to the PayPal via the address provided in this entry, Subterranean Press will match the contribution 1-for-1, effectively doubling your donation.
I checked my soon-to-go-bye-bye PayPal account.
I had a whopping $1.68 in it.
I gave a dollar (hoping the sixty-eight cents will keep the account alive long enough for later monetary CPR...).
If you have more in your account, give more.
Now is the time for all you smiley-smiley people to show your true colors.
Be very generous.
