Our Friend Maggie's Story is Published!

A Hero By Any Other NameI (Rob) work with an amazing webmaster, writer, outreach person who just had a story she wrote published in a collection!  Maggie Masetti (she wrote under the pen name of Maggie Allen) wrote a story in the Anthology called "A Hero By Any Other Name."  I already ordered my copy! - Rob
What’s Maggie's story about? “A Marvelous New World” takes place in the aftermath of Janine Spendlove’s story, “He was a Marvelous Man.” Her story made me wonder how the appearance of a real, live superhero would affect the comic book geek community, and I also liked the idea of those geeks getting a chance to become a part of superhero mythology themselves.
     Here's what Maggie said:
 Silence in the Library Publishing’s special anthology called “A Hero By Any Other Name” – is all short stories about superhero sidekicks. (It’s a companion to another Origins anthology with superhero stories.)Authors who have stories in A Hero By Any Other Name include: Aaron Allston, Michael Stackpole, Maxwell Alexander Drake, Jean Rabe, Janine Spendlove, Bryan Young, more, like me! (Pen name, Maggie Allen.)
This book has a cover by Denis Loubet and also has interior art by Mark Dos Santos, which is so cool. Having art drawn of my story? Again, so cool.
As you can tell, I’m super excited about this! If you are at Origins, you can pick up a copy for 10 bucks – otherwise it’s available on Amazon right now!

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
