无拘无束III– Great Stories, Helping Authors and Artists


By JJ:Grim Oak Press and editor Shawn Speakman produce the不受约束文集等特殊版本 - 这是用来为有需要的作家和艺术家的帮助支付医疗费的收益的一部分:

不受约束: 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 when纽约时报亚博体育下载app畅销书作家特里·布鲁克斯愿意捐出一个简短的故事肖恩可以减轻对这些法案出售 - 并建议肖恩问同他的其他朋友。

首先不受约束anthology was the result, an anthology unfettered by story theme restrictions, featuring short fiction works by some of the best fantasy writers in the genre – many of which were set in those authors’ popular series universes. It paid off more than $200,000 in medical bills.

无拘无束II: In an effort to pay forward the aid he received – and to memorialize his mother who passed away from stomach cancer in early 2016 – Speakman again collaborated with celebrated genre authors to publish无拘无束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.

迄今为止,该项目已经从给定的大约$ 24,000不受约束and无拘无束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. Once the applied-for 501c3 charitable organization status is approved, they will be able to disburse more funds to needy authors and artists, without having to pay taxes on them.

作者被包括在列表中无拘无束IIIis full of well-known names, and the book will be available as a hardcover ARC signed by at least six contributors (250 copies only, available January 15), a trade hardcover and an ebook (both available March 19), and a numbered hardcover edition signed by all contributors (available May 14).

… and根据布兰登桑德森,它将包括一个从未出版,20,000字时间之轮novella:

你们有些人知道,在修订过程A Memory of Light, two lengthy sections ended up on the cutting room floor. The first, which we titledRiver of Souls, was included in the first不受约束选集。第二,我认为,再也看不到光明的一天。

However, Grim Oak Press (and Shawn Speakman, who runs it) has continued the不受约束anthologies – the income of which is used to help pay medical fees for authors and artists in need. I thought the arrival of the third anthology would be a great chance to use this other deleted scene. (Which involves Perrin traveling into the Ways.) Harriet has graciously agreed to let it be published, so I’m thrilled to be able to announce its inclusion in the anthology.

I’ve long been fond of this sequence, and it was quite difficult to cut from the book. (In the anthology itself, I’ll explain why we eventually decided that the sequence needed to go.)

The earlier不受约束anthologies are still available in trade, e-book, and special editions; the first one has been reissued in a second edition which features a new cover and contains an extra story. Purchasing any of these anthologies directly from the Grim Oak Press site allows more of the money to go to the charitable fund – however, Speakman is happy for readers to purchase at any of the usual retail sites.

About Grim Oak Press:

不受约束launched 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.

We also use the best materials around. Each book is printed on extremely high quality paper, cloth bound and leather wrapped, making them feel just as good in your hands as they look on your shelves. Details in the design and layout, sewn in ribbons, cover stamps, and many other fine touches are how we separate ourselves from other small publishing presses.

它是为那些谁爱SF&F一个神奇的时间。谢谢所有谁从严峻的橡树出版社购买图书。只要你喜欢将它们放在你的书架,我们将继续生产它们。
