[cancer] Update on the Science Fiction Author on Trial fundraiser

Science Fiction Author on Trial (NIH trial, that is!)


Thank you very much to everyone who has donated to my fundraiser in support of my costs for the NIH study I am now enrolled in. Thank you as well to everyone who has provided promotion, cross-promotion and signal boost. And finally, thank you so much to those who have donated premiums to the fundraising process.

As of my writing this post on Monday morning, we are at almost two-thirds of goal. I cannot express my gratitude enough. These days, my life erodes in so many ways, growing smaller and smaller. At times like this, I am reminded how good my life still is, how large each of you help make it be.

The fundraising site was updated over the weekend with some terrific premiums. Kevin J. Anderson, Prime Books, and Clarkesworld Magazine have made generous donations for contributions at given levels. I’ve put a dozen copies of my private printing of The January Machine, to be awarded by random drawing. I also have something cool forthcoming for all donors at any level, though we’re not quite ready to announce it, and there’s a couple of more really neat things in the pipe as well.

Give a nod to Shlom Ster for pulling this together. And think of me this week, as I literally dedicate myself to science. I’m in for some difficult and painful times in the very near future.

See my original post here for a bit more background on the fundraiser, if you are interested.
