So, the crew of the good Starship Sofa are running a fundraiser for Spider and Jeanne Robinson, for the latter is struggling with a pernicious sort of cancer. If you donate, you can have a copy of Lawrence Santoro’s “Lord Dickens’s Declaration” in ebook form, in addition to the free podcast of the story (starting here, continuing here). Yes, I’ve made a contribution, and you should too. Even you godless types, like me, have Newtonmass to celebrate and be thankful for.
At the same time, Tony, the captain of the Starship Sofa, also informed me that “Lester Young and the Jupiter’s Moons’ Blues” is a finalist for a Sofanaut Awards, as mentioned by Mark Bormann in this podcast. Very flattering, so thank you to the listeners who voted for it!
Here’s hoping those who voted (for any story at all) also make a small donation to brighten Spider and Jeanne’s December.
