Help Steve Niles

Heavy rainfall has caused some serious flooding in the Austin, Texas area. Among those affected was writer, Steve Niles, best known as the creator of 30 Days of Night. Steve is an extremely kind and generous person. Besides sharing his love for the genre, he's bent over backwards to help his fellow creators and is behind numerous fundraising campaigns to aid creators overwhelmed by medical, legal, or other life changing expenses. Now it's time to come to his aid.

His house was flooded, causing severe damage, and he is without flood insurance. He'll need to replace furniture, rugs, work materials, food, and many other basic day to day necessities, as well as coping with cost of repairs to his home.

If you can contribute any amount, please do. If everyone participating as Cryptkeepers, and everyone visiting here using this site as a gateway to participating blogs, threw in a few bucks it would help out quite a bit. A paypal account has been set up for this.

Send funds via Paypal to HelpSteveNiles@gmail.com.

Thanks for spreading the word, John. I heard about this earlier today and immediately pitched in. Met Steve at a few conventions and he's such an awesome guy - shame something like this happened.

That is horrible. It's great that a man of his stature helps out the new talent. I want to do the same myself.
Which leads me to a quick plug, if you don't mind.Also, the 1st episode of my TV series "A Seat on a Train" released on Halloween and is playing from then on to honor this horribly awesome holiday.
Be the first to check it out at www.aseatonatrain.com
If you love "The Twilight Zone" then come take "A Seat on a Train." It's Free!
Most importantly, Have a Happy Halloween
