Harlan Ellison, the inspiration for Kindle All Stars, will also be a contributing author! Huzzah!!

Here is the current roster of authors so far:

Wow! Who would have guessed that my first story accepted for publication would be appearing alongside such an impressive list of authors? I’m thrilled!

In an interview with Frank Zubek, Editor Bernard J. Schaffer was asked, “What prompted you to take on this project?”

His answer?

“It was a fit of madness. I released a book in May, a book in June, have a book in editing right now with Karen The Angry Hatchet, and was halfway through the first draft of another book when it suddenly occurred to me that I needed be doing more. Insanity.

“By the time I realized that this is a project that only a babbling lunatic would attempt, I’d already opened my big mouth and it took on a life of its own.

“That being said, I am happiest when caught in the thrall of a whirling dervish. To me, it’s fun. Even when it isn’t.”

I am reminded of the oft-quoted words of W.H. Murray from The Scottish Himalayan Expedition (1951):

“…the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen incidents, meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamt would have come his way.”

I bet he didn’t see all this coming. Thank you, Bernard, for your fit of madness!
