What’s black & white and (d)read all over?
Definitely the first, possibly the only, Indie Author Charity Antrollogy! Coming soon!
Submitted for your perusal: a smorgasbord of trolls.*
Literal trolls, literary trolls. Trolls in space, trolls in cyberspace. Trolls that are naughty, trolls that are nice. Troll detectives, trolls that have lice. That’s just the way it is, with trolls.
Some of the authors are well-known. Some are just not well, not well at all. Some are hiding under their beds, or possibly bridges. Some should be. That’s just the way it is, with authors.
Our international authors have something in common: they have contributed their work for a cause. All net proceeds from this book will go to Equality Now. Since 1992, Equality Now has worked for the protection and promotion of the human rights of women and girls around the world.
Please watch Joss Whedon’s speech about why he supports this worthy cause — and if you watch from the beginning, you’ll get to see Meryl Streep introduce him! (It’s worth it.)
Thank you in advance to all the wonderful writers who are contributing troll stories for the anthology. And — who knew? — even troll haiku!
Our publisher, The Etling Press, is the brand new publishing division of the award-winning San Francisco design firm, Reflectur. They will handle all the nitpicky financial details, and at materials cost! The Etling Press is so new that they don’t even have a separate website or a logo yet. But Reflectur has many, many years of experience with pro-bono work for charity — and they have their own on-site events venue, The Box SF, in downtown San Francisco.
The authors? So glad you asked. Here they are now. Please follow their links to learn more about them and their writing (while I work on the missing links):
Edward M. Grant Bob Summer Duncan Swallow Mark Capell Kelly Ferguson John L. Monk Lindy Moone David Lawlor E. A. Linden A. A. Leil J. Matthew McKern F. Scott Kimball Victoria Leybourne Rinelle Grey Sandra Stephens Meribeth Hutto David Perry Jim Harris James A. Jeffries Petur HK Gregg Fedchak Cora Buhlert and Tobias D. Robison
*All but two of these stories were written for this antrollogy. All but one are making their debut here. We hope you’ll enjoy the stories and will follow their authors’ links to your doom. (Just testing whether you read this far. You did.)
