Info on Broken Eye Books's Patreon initiative. If you read down, you'll see the info includes the complete Table of Contents for RIDE THE STAR WIND, their forthcoming anthology in which the Cthulhu Mythos meets space opera. The book will have all-new fiction by terrific writers like Lucy A. Snyder, Cody Goodfellow, Tim Curran, and Joe Pulver as well as something from me.
