Helping less fortunate kids

It’s August, so I’m allowed to talk about back-to-school stuff now, right? Maybe? What if it’s for a good cause?

Volunteers of America runs a program called Operation Backpack that turns donations into school supplies for needy children in homeless shelters, foster care, and other less than optimal circumstances. I’m not even going to try to be snarky or wry about that, that’s just some outstanding civic heroism right there.

So right now you can help out Operation Backpack and at the same time you can get your hands on an ebook version of How The West Was Weird Volume 2, and its predecessor volume (which doesn’t feature any stories by me but is still a good little anthology) and fifteen other ebooks, all for the low low price of $10, profits passed on to the charity.


Thanks. I promise to be much more wry and altogether snarkier about inappropriate seasonal lead times when the stores bring out their Halloween stuff in about a week and a half.
