I know my fellow staff might be a little upset with me by doing this, but I’m hijacking this post today.
See, today is my birthday. Even Google knows it, so… I figure they can’t be too mad.
Now, generally, I hate the fucking day, and I just want to make it through without strangling someone, and today is definitely no exception.
But today I want you to do something for me, and I’m calling in whatever birthday powers there are that I might have at my disposal.
Today I want you to help someone in need. Call it a gift to me, call it an All Hallow’s Read miracle, or just call it good karma. Whatever you do, just try to do it.
Steve Niles, the creator of the impeccable 30 days of Night series, Criminal Macabre, The Golem, and countless other seminal comic book stories, has lost nearly everything he owns in a flash flood that slammed Austin, Texas this past weekend. And it’s not over yet. From the news reports I’ve read, they’re bracing for more soon.
You can send a donation via Paypal to help Steve get back on his feet at HelpSteveNiles@gmail.com.
Think about it. You could spend a few bucks on a coffee today, or a buy Kindle e-book, or hell… you could spend your money on a birthday present for a friend.
Or you could help someone in need…
