Tales for Canterbury

My excellent friend Karen Healey wrote me today with this:
I think that your Whatever readers might be interested in Tales for Canterbury. It’s an anthology of original and reprinted short stories in electronic and print form, the proceeds of which are all going to the NZ Red Cross (Christchurch) Earthquake Appeal.
The writers and editors are all donating their work, and while the brief was for stories of hope, survival and the future, rather than for any particular genre, there are some notable SFF names in there – like Juliet Marillier, Neil Gaiman, Gwyneth Jones, Jay Lake, Helen Lowe, Jeff VanderMeer, and Sean Williams.
The website for the anthology is here, and pre-orders can be made here.
There you are, folks.
I’m a Cantabrian – only moved back into my house last week, in fact – and this is (good) news to me! Some names I like in there, and some I don’t know (yet).
Same here, I’m in Christchurch and appreciating everything the world is doing for us.
I would ask that the book was published in the Hungarian language? I’ve been to several shops in the area, but still could not find it anywhere. Online stores also have looked at (www.konyv-konyvek.hu), but could not find it there either. Planned to prepare the Hungarian-language translation? If so, then what is the timetable? The previous post (sci-fi), there are very few women. For example, Naomi Novik.
Free delivery for Aussies and Kiwis too.
