Altered Perspectives: An anthology


Recommended Posts

This isn't a miniature related but a good friend of mine, and a judge for the Painting Excuses contests here, is running a campaign to help pay his medical bills and start a foundation (with what money is left over) to help other authors with mental health problems. Donate some money and get a cool anothology that a lot of authors have donated to.




Few things to get out of the way here:


1) Yes this is indiegogo and flex funding as it's Charity. Can't do this on kickstarter.

2) The money donated do not go towards the cost of printing the book. Those costs are being covered by author Brandon Sanderson. This means that you can ignore the amount to get funded as if you pledge you get a book no matter what and all the money you give goes to Rob.


So what's in it? Lots of good stuff.


A high-quality hardback book featuring writing from the following authors:

Ally Condie, the foreword

Dan Wells, the introduction

Annette Lyon, An unpublished chapter from her retelling of the Finnish fairy tale, the Kalevala

Aprilynne Pike, Three short stories from the Wings universe.

Brandon Mull, Deleted scenes from Beyonders 2

Brandon Sanderson, five completely rewritten chapters from The Way of Kings, where Kaladin makes the opposite choice of what he makes in the published novel.

Bree Despain, an alternate ending to The Lost Saint, and an alternate beginning to the Shadow Prince.

Brodi Ashton, the first chapter from her YA novel about an unwilling alien fighter who has to rescue the boy she loves

Claudia Gray, a deleted scene from A Thousand Pieces of You.

Lauren Oliver, two deleted scenes from Pandemonium, plus a hilarious scene about the plotting process
