UNTIL 8/16: Signed copies of OMNIBUS to be given to 5 donators to true crime site
Once upon a time, Hugh helped a friend get his true crime site going. Some time later, I got sucked into the site, as did Rockinruby, and this is where we "met" Hugh.
The costs to the owner to maintain that site are a bit more than Hugh has to pay for this site: there are more members, and that site has a dedicated server. (If the HH forum had a dedicated server, we might not have been down most of today. But that's a conversation for later.)
The owner of that site--you may know him as Christopher Lee here--currently is doing a "fundraiser" to cover the costs of keeping the site running. Five of those who donate will be given a signed copy of WOOL Omnibus.
Considering that I have a positive history (well, mostly) with the site, I donated, but I asked Christopher Lee to remove me from the drawing (I have signed copies of many of Hugh's works, and it just doesn't feel fair for me to throw myself in the running).
You don't have to check out the site. In fact, for the most part, I would strongly encourage that you NOT (MURDER! CHILD ABDUCTION! BABY RAPISTS! DRUNKEN SCHOOL BUS DRIVERS! FOUL-MOUTHED WRITERS AND COMMENTERS!) unless you have a steel-lined stomach. However, if you want to get your name in for the signed copies of the Omnibus, you can go to the link I'm about to provide and give $5 or so.
If you want to throw your money away on filth and depravity in the hopes of snagging a free signed copy of the Omnibus, pitch your dollars this way:
Don't say I didn't warn you!
Brain bleach. That is all.
Good luck with the contest!
