Author Tom Piccirilli was diagnosed with a brain tumor last week and had to have immediate surgery. Now he has to have at least two weeks in ICU, and will probably have a long recovery ahead. His insurance situation is precarious and his wife may have to quit her job to take care of him once he is out of the hospital. A fundraiser has been set up on indegogo to help with his medical bills, and literally any amount you can donate will help. If a lot of people contribute even a small amount, it adds up quickly. The link to the fundraiser is here.

And Laura Anne Gilman (suricattus) adds: For the rest of 2012, ChiZine Publications is generously donating all proceeds from e-book sales of his novella Every Shallow Cut directly to him for his medical expenses, and Crossroad Press will donate 100% of the proceeds from the sale of all Tom Piccirilli titles to the author directly.

So you can help out plus get some great horror to read during Halloween!
