Gerri Leen's charity anthology (proceeds go to help homeless animals in Northern Virginia) is now edited and proofed. I just finished reading it and can tell you that it is chock full of strong stories and evocative poetry. And there are stories that will make you cry unless you're made of stone. And some that will make you smile. And a few steampunk stories that will convince you there's hope for the genre.
The anthology is called A Quiet Shelter There. I'll let you know when it's coming out. And in the meantime, a totally gratuitous picture of Orange Cat lounging on the bed in the spare room.
