Gawked from Sarah Monette:
Dave Freer could use some help. He and his family are emigrating from South Africa to Australia, and their definition of “family” rightly includes their dogs and cats. As Dave says in his FAQ:
They had always been part of moving budget: we’re selling our home to do this, and will have to start afresh in Australia. The part we didn’t figure on was currency fluctuation and quarantine costs. Thus we have some money towards moving them, but simply not nearly enough.
Dave is putting his novel Save the Dragons up on the web, a chapter at a time on the Scheherazade model, to raise the necessary money. Waltz over to the website to read and/or donate.
