    As many of my readers know, I live in New Jersey. Superstorm Sandy hit two weeks ago and to say that the natural disaster transformed parts of the region into an apocalyptic landscape would be an understatement. In other words, I'll take the five-day power outage and dozen or so toppled trees around my property as a win compared to what happened in other parts of New Jersey and New York.

    Author R.T. Kaelin immediately grabbed his bootstraps and put together Triumph over Tragedy, a benefit anthology for victims of Hurricane Sandy. Sarah of the terrific blog Bookworm Blues has been pitching in as well, most recently securing Elizabeth Bear for a story. Additionally, the VERY IMPRESSIVE list of contributors looks something like this:
    • Robert Silverberg (Hugo and Nebular Award winner)
    • Marion Zimmer Bradley (Locus Award winner) (donated by the MZB Literary Trust)
    • Elizabeth Bear
    • Michael J. Sullivan
    • Bradley P. Beaulieu
    • Phillip Athans
    • Stephen D. Sullivan
    • Mark Lawrence
    • Rick Novy
    • Jean Rabe
    • Maxwell Alexander Drake
    • SM Blooding
    • Erik Scott de Bie
    • Alex Bledsoe
    • Matthew Wayne Selznick
    • R.T. Kaelin
    • Ari Marmell
    • Jaym Gates
    • C.S. Marks
    • C.J. Henderson
    • Marian Allen
    • Bryan Young
    • Donald Bingle
    • Janine Spendlove
    • T.L. Gray
    • Miya Kressin
    • Steven Saus
    • Addie King
    • Rob Knipe
    • Vicki Johnson-Steger
    • Tracy Chowdhury
    • Doris Stever
    • Gregory Wilson

    Folks, I'm now on board this project helping to edit some of the stories. I'd also like to let you all know Adrian Tchaikovsky recently agreed to offer a story to the anthology.

    Yeah I just noticed I left his name out. I was watching my 16 month old while I was typing this up and his name slipped through the cracks caused by distraction. Terrible of me. Thanks for adding his name!

    I think it would be more helpful to list the authors not contributing. I am looking forward to this anthology, great cause and shaping up to be an impressive list of authors.
