Peter S. Beagle says:
If you’ve ever read and enjoyed one of my books or stories, or seen and enjoyed one of the films that I scripted, I’d like to ask a favor of you. It’s simple, really — if at all possible, within the next month please do one of the following things.
1) Go to www.conlanpress.com and buy a subscription to my year-long 52/50 Project (more about which, below).
2) Go to www.conlanpress.com and buy any single book or DVD of my work, either for you or as a gift for a friend.
3) If you can’t make a purchase yourself, try and get someone else interested enough to take the leap.
As for why I’m asking, that’s even simpler: you will change my life.

Peter S. Beagle is an old friend and a wonderful writer. He was also extremely kind to me when I was a no-name pup. All of us know about “paying forward”; it’s rare to be able to try to return kindnesses directly, but I hope this note goes some way to doing so. Peter has not been treated well or fairly by many of the people and organizations he’s done business with.
We can help. Read his newsletter; subscribe to the 52/50 project or buy one of his books. If you haven’t read his work, you’re in for a treat. If you have, you already know the new project will be well worth your support.
I blog here every Sunday, and occasionally other days as the spirit strikes me or the events require, as now.
Dreamsnake is now available at Book View Cafe, serialized by the chapter on Sundays, or by subscription to the complete ebook (Mobipocket/Palm, html, PDF).
You can also find The Moon and the Sun at Book View Cafe, where a new chapter is featured each week. For print copies of The Moon and the Sun and my other SF novels, visit my website’s Basement Full of Books.
