What is Geeky Giving?
Each month Geeky Giving will produce a bundle of exclusive short stories and novellas. These science fiction and fantasy books by your favorite authors will only be available through Geeky Giving, and 100 percent of the money raised goes directly to Barrow Neurological Institute to research cures for Alzheimer’s, ALS, brain tumors, Parkinson’s Disease, and more.
The third monthly bundle will be available starting April 25, 2016, and will be delivered as a thank you for making a donation of at least $5. Know you’re going to want all four bundles? A $25 donation to Barrow scores you every monthly bundle.
At the end of this project, there are plans to create a complete anthology of all stories with a special capstone story not available anywhere else. Print and e-book copies will be available.
Authors who are already contributing stories to this great cause include:
- A.C. Wise
- Amanda Bonilla
- Edward Ashton
- Heather Clithroe
- James Knapp
- Jeff Somers
- JY Yang
- Karina Cooper
- Mary Robinette Kowal
