Unfettered III- 伟大的故事,帮助作者和艺术家

By JJ:严峻的橡树新闻编辑肖恩·斯皮克曼产生Unfetteredanthologies and other special editions – part of the proceeds of which is used to help pay medical fees for authors and artists in need:

Unfettered: Lacking health insurance and diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma in 2011, Shawn quickly accrued a massive medical debt that he did not have the ability to pay. That’s whenNew York Timesbest-selling author Terry Brooks offered to donate a short story Shawn could sell toward alleviating those bills – and suggested Shawn ask the same of his other friends.

The firstUnfettered文集是结果,选集无拘无束的故事题材的限制,具有短的小说作品中的一些流派最好的幻想作家 - 其中许多在这些作者的人气系列宇宙设定。亚博体育下载app它支付了医疗费超过$ 200,000。

Unfettered II:在努力向前支付他收到的援助 - 暨纪念他的母亲谁胃癌在2016年年初去世 - 斯皮克曼再次与著名流派作家合作出版Unfettered II. All proceeds from the anthology went to help eliminate medical debt for other authors or be donated to cancer research hubs around the world.

To date, the project has given approximately $24,000 fromUnfetteredUnfettered II, two large donations to two fantasy authors in need of funds for medical debt and hospice care and around $10,000 in donations to cancer research.

...和according to Brandon Sanderson, it will include a never-published, 20,000-word时光之轮novella:

As some of you know, during the revision process ofA Memory of Light, two lengthy sections ended up on the cutting room floor. The first, which we titled灵魂之河, was included in the firstUnfetteredAnthology. The second, I assumed, would never see the light of day.

然而,严峻的橡树新闻(和肖恩斯皮克曼,谁运行它)延续了Unfettered文集 - 它的收入用于为有需要的作家和艺术家的帮助支付医疗费。我认为第三文集的到来将是一个巨大的机会,利用这个其它被删除的场面。(其中,涉及佩林旅游进入途径。)哈里特已欣然同意让它发表,所以我很高兴能够宣布其在文集收录。


The earlierUnfettered选集仍然在贸易,电子书,以及特别版可用;第一个已经补发了其中采用了新的封面,并包含一个额外的故事了第二版。购买任何这些藏品直接从严峻橡树新闻网站允许更多的钱去给慈善基金 - 然而,斯皮克曼很高兴为读者在购买任何常规的零售网站。

About Grim Oak Press:

Unfetteredlaunched Grim Oak Press, a brand new SF&F publishing press with the big dream of helping others. It has grown ever since. After five years, Grim Oak Press spawned the non-profit Grim Oak Shield, both businesses working hand-in-hand to defeat medical debt for authors and artists in need. Such notable authors as Terry Brooks, Naomi Novik, Jacqueline Carey, Stephen R. Donaldson, Raymond E. Feist, and Janny Wurts support that mission and in 2018 Grim Oak Press will publish beautiful, limited editions of their books.

Each project we take on has its own life and style. We try to match the best artists in SF&F with the story to make a perfect match. We work directly with the authors and artists, giving them a creative freedom to re-envision their worlds like never before. New wrap around cover art, new interiors, and full color foldouts make these books extremely unique.


It is a magical time for those who love SF&F. Thank you to all who purchase books from Grim Oak Press. We will continue producing them as long as you enjoy placing them on your shelves.
