I just learned that my short story “Undivided”, which originally appeared in Marion Zimmer Bradley’s SWORD AND SORCERESS XXIII, will be reprinted in R. T. Kaelin’s anthology TRIUMPH OVER TRAGEDY to benefit victims of Hurricane Sandy.
Many authors, including Robert Silverberg (!!!), are contributing reprints. R. T. is running an Indiegogo campaign. All money raised by the campaign and the anthology go through the American Red Cross to the relief efforts.
Here’s what R. T. says:
To date, I have 31 authors committed, 4 editors, and an illustrator. The author list as of this moment:
• Robert Silverberg
• Michael J. Sullivan
• Bradley P. Beaulieu
• Phillip Athans
• Stephen D. Sullivan
• Rick Novy
• Jean Rabe
• Maxwell Alexander Drake
• Erik Scott de Bie
• Alex Bledsoe
• Matthew Wayne Selznick
• R.T. Kaelin
• Ari Marmell
• Jaym Gates
• C.S. Marks
• C.J. Henderson
• Marian Allen
• Bryan Young
• Donald Bingle
• Janine Spendlove
• T.L. Gray
• Miya Kressin
• Steven Saus
• Addie King
• Rob Knipe
• Vicki Johnson-Steger
• Tracy Chowdhury
• Doris Stever
• Gregory Wilson
If you are an author looking to contribute a story, feel free to contact me at email@example.com. Or send me a message via Twitter @AuthorRTKaelin. Anthology details: 3-5k words in length (after all, we want to get this together quickly), genre independent, appropriate for all ages. As this will be an ebook only, total length of book will not matter. I’m guess we’ll be pushing 200k when all is said and done.
I’m so proud to be a part of this! And, considering that some of the victims are cat owners, cat lovers, and cats, maybe this is a Caturday post, after all.
A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: A character thinks of a way to help somebody with dignity for both the giver and receiver.

Are they interested in humor? What kind of a piece could I contribute? (i. e. what is appropriate?)
