How can you get some cool short stories, support (like with actual money!) a dedicated freelance artist (not me), and check out the creative work of one of my long-time friends, all in one fell swoop?
Go buy this book.
9 short stories by merriehaskell, 216 pages, delivered to your door for less than $20. Cake.
(Sorry i've been posting so much, but this was important! Also apologies to merriehaskell if my quick-n-dirty cover selection and intro don't do her work justice. However, the site will let you copy the anthology, change the cover/intro and even collection as you please, and make your own! Pretty neat, huh?)
Anyways, go share the love. It's the holidays 'n' stuff.
