Exciting News For Fantasy Fans; 2014 Author Calendar!

I've just heard about an exciting project going on that fantasy fans can help with!  Lauren Zurchin, a marvelous photographer and fantasy bibliophile, has decided to create a fantasy calendar for 2014.  Each month will have a photograph of an amazing fantasy author, dressed in a costume symbolic of all things fantasy.  Here is the lineup of authors:

  • Holly Black (The Spiderwick Chronicles; The Curse Workers Series)
  • Gail Carriger (Soulless; The Parasol Protectorate)
  • Cassandra Clare (The Mortal Instruments; The Infernal Devices)
  • Lauren Kate (Fallen)
  • Gregory Maguire (Wicked; The Oz Chronicles)
  • The Merry Sisters of Fate- a trio of authors consisting of: Tessa Gratton (Blood Magic; The Blood Keeper), Maggie Stiefvater (Shiver; The Scorpio Races; The Raven Boys), and Brenna Yovanoff (The Replacement; Paper Valentine)
  • Brandon Mull (Fablehaven; Beyonders)
  • Lauren Oliver (Delirium; Before I Fall)
  • Christopher Paolini (The Inheritance Cycle)
  • Patrick Rothfuss (The Name of the Wind)
  • Brandon Sanderson (Wheel of Time; Mistborn)
  • Tad Williams (Otherland; Memory, Sorrow and Thorn)

  • Here's how you can help make this exciting project a reality.  Lauren needs some help geting started.  She has created a Kickstarter where you can donate to help with the funding.  Donators will get some amazing prizes; signed calendars, signed prints, bookmarks, computer wallpaper, chats; all kind of marvelous things.  In order to see the various prizes and to donate if you've so moved, go to the Kickstarter page .  Booksies has made a contribution and can't wait until the calendars are ready!
