If you haven’t bought the Anthony finalist for best anthology, Protectors 2: Heroes, have I got a deal for you. I happen to have several of them here taking up space and not making any money for The National Association to Protect Children’s HERO Corps, to which 100% of the proceeds are donated. If you don’t know the HERO Corps, they train wounded veterans to assist law enforcement in hunting online predators. So it’s time to move some books.
It’s got original, exclusive stories by Laird Barron, Graham Wynd, Rios de la Luz, Gary Phillips, Richard Prosch, Hilary Davidson, Joelle Charbonneau, Josh Stallings, Scott Adlerberg, Neliza Drew, and myself, as well as “Silvia Reyes” by P.J. Ward, which was longlisted for the year’s best horror, by Ellen Datlow. You also get stories by Joyce Carol Oates, Joe Lansdale, Reed Farrel Coleman, Harlan Ellison, Wayne Dundee, and Holly West’s “Don’t Fear the Ripper,” which was chosen for inclusion in Otto Penzler’s new Jack the Ripper anthology.
Cover price is $26.95, but I’ll let them go for $19 shipped (media mail, US only) and I’ll sign or inscribe them to your liking.
And I’ll do one better: I also have copies of the 500 page trade paperback of Protectors, the first anthology, with original, exclusive stories by Ken Bruen, Jen Conley, Todd Robinson, Ray Banks, Patti Abbott, Les Edgerton, James Reasoner, Johnny Shaw, Josh Stallings, Dave White, and Charlie Stella, plus hard to find classics by Chet Williamson, George Pelecanos, Roxane Gay, and Bill Cameron. It’s $18.95 cover, but I if you want it and Protectors 2: Heroes, I will sell them for $30 shipped in the US. And of course I’ll sign and inscribe them.
Want them? Just shoot me an email via the Contact Form, I can take Paypal or check. That’s cheaper than Amazon, and the HERO Corps will get a nice boost. And it lasts until they’re gone.
