Peter S. Beagle, acclaimed author of The Last Unicorn and Tamsin, is making a plea for his fans to help him out of some financial difficulty by signing up for his new year-long project, 52/50, in which “I’m writing 52 original poems or song lyrics, one per week, for a whole year.”
Peter S. Beagle says:
If you’ve ever read and enjoyed one of my books or stories, or seen and enjoyed one of the films that I scripted, I’d like to ask a favor of you. It’s simple, really—if at all possible, within the next month please do one of the following things.
1) Go to www.conlanpress.com and buy a subscription to my year-long 52/50 Project.
2) Go to www.conlanpress.com and buy any single book or DVD of my work, either for you or as a gift for a friend.
3) If you can’t make a purchase yourself, try and get someone else interested enough to take the leap.
As for why I’m asking, that’s even simpler: you will change my life.
