Exclamation Robert Sheckley needs your help

It's really hard to believe, but one of the best (if not THE best) science fiction writers to ever walk this planet doesn't have money to pay his medical bills. And he got really sick while he was in Ukraine. Fortunately, private contributions from people all over the world and a generous donation from an Ukrainian businessman covered his medical bills there and his transportation to the US as well ($30K+). Now he's in the hands of the blood sucking US healthcare industry, so he sure will need the money to pay the bills until, and long after he recovers.

I've been reading the guy's books since I was 10 years old. I don't want him and his family to go bankrupt and get kicked out of the house. If you've read his books, you most likely share my feelings.

There are two ways to help him:
1. Go to http://www.sheckley.com/ and click on "Donate" button
2. Send your checks directly to Robert Sheckley, P.O. Box 656 Pine Plains, NY 12567 USA.

If you can, please donate. It doesn't really matter how much. Also, please forward this information to everyone you know.
