Fellow SF Novelist Dave Freer is emigrating from South Africa to Australia, but the costs of quarantine and transport for his four pets run to 19K. He’s set up a special storytellers bowl site where you can contribute $ to an ongoing novel he’s working on; please consider doing so, as those pet-owners out there know how hard it would be to leave an animal behind.
And speaking of animals, there will be a Special Pet Announcement on this site shortly. The search for Spartacus’ successor is over! Stay tuned for details.
