GRRM wrote recently asking his Wild Card's minions to spread the word about books he's donated for sale to benefit
The Comic Book Legal Defense Fund
. He's given them 100 copies of Inside Straight
, a Wild Cards novel that begins one of the newer cycle of stories. It's signed by him and co-authors Melinda Snodgrass, Ian Tregillis, Daniel Abraham, John Jos Miller,
and Michael Cassutt.
Here's GRRM's Not a Blog Post about it
Here's the Legal Defense site.
This is all about protecting freedom of speech during Banned Books Week. The Comic Book Legal Defense Fund
is a non-profit organization dedicated
to the protection of the First Amendment rights of the comics art form
and its community of retailers, creators, publishers, librarians, and
readers. The CBLDF provides legal referrals, representation, advice,
assistance, and education in furtherance of these goals.
That's all. Check it out!
