Things collide here.

100 Stories for Haiti

Check out the 100 Stories for Haiti anthology project, sparked and organized by writer Greg McQueen in Denmark, and all sales of which will benefit the Red Cross and its relief efforts in Haiti. Nick Harkaway, who wrote The Gone-Away World, contributed a story and the introduction (and no, nobody’s getting paid for this – the stories are all donated); Smashwords is producing the e-book version, and Bridge House Publishing will handle the paperback.  (On Facebook? Here’s the project’s page – spread the word!)

I read about the effort on John Scalzi’s blog the same day as the initial submission deadline and managed to get a story in under the wire. Pretty much forgot about it over the weekend, but Monday’s email brought me word that my piece was selected!

The entire 100-story list is here, and it’s a crazy-global roster, from Harkaway to The White Road and Other Stories author Tania Hershman to Botswana writer Lauri Kubuitsile. And  Alasdair Stuart, the host of Pseudopod is on there, too. (Edited to reflect the fact that Alasdair popped in to confirm that’s him.)

With so many voices and styles, it should be an interesting read, which, yes, I realize is hardly the point here, but I’m awfully excited about playing even a small part in a project which has the potential to do a lot of good.
