angels of the meanwhile cover

Angels of the Meanwhile, the e-chapbook/anthology to benefit Elizabeth R. McClellan (@popelizbet), is available for pre-order for now. We’ve extended the pre-order window through June 1st in order to be able to promote the collection through the Memorial Day convention season and in order to give more time to highlight some of the newer additions to the collection.

That’s right, I said new additions! We are welcoming Ellen Kushner (Swordspoint) and Randee Dawn to the fiction categories, along with Christina Sng in poetry! They join an already impressive cast of talent that must be read to be believed. (See below!)

We have fairies and fauns, we have love and loss, we have grief and growth, we have mermaids and sirens, we have dragons and firebirds, we have night hags and gorgons, and far, far more.Pre-Order Today at the Price of Your Choice!Get your order in by June 1st This special benefit anthology is a unique assemblage of talents and words to aid a cherished community member in need. This kind of collection is not easy to come by. Blink and it will pass you by!

Email Address (For Delivery)

You can name your price on the next page after pressing the button. We’re using a simple PayPal form so that your entire contribution, minus PayPal’s fees, go directly to Lizbet to help pay the expenses relating to her injury. Delivery is now anticipated for July 31st. Yes, that’s also pushed back a month so I can focus on promoting it during the order period, and editing afterwards. Line editing expertise will be contributed by Rose Fox, co-editor of the Long Hidden anthology.

The book will be delivered as a package of three formats: Kindle, other e-book readers, and a PDF (suitable for reading on almost any device, including a computer). All free of restrictive DRM.
