Peter S. Beagle is suing his former business manager

Peter S. Beagle is the author of The Last Unicorn, a classic work of modern fantasy. He is suing his former business manager for fraud, defamation, elder abuse, and breach of contract, among other charges.

This is DREADFUL! Among everything else going on – the phrase ‘elder abuse’ wakes my dragon like nothing else. NOBODY who has lived that long should ever be afraid or hurt.

There’s also a link to Beagle’s beautiful and moving tribute to Christopher Lee. It’s wonderful and perfectly illustrative of the many complex layers of a man best known for playing villains.

Please share, reblog, retweet, link to, whatever this post to spread the word!

Do Something To Help!

I don’t know a whole hell of a lot but an entire nation has become unsafe for its own people.

Reading about Paris over the weekend was devastating. I hate DAESH, I hate bullies, I hate when people do things that make the world feel less safe and prove that people make the worst monsters. I am aware that things like this happen all the time and aren’t covered by the news – I’ve been following the crisis in Syria and I hate most of all that this has caused other countries to become hesitant to welcome refugees. I don’t know a whole hell of a lot but an entire nation has become unsafe for its own people. 

Refinery 29 has a very helpful list of charities you can donate to, and things you can do to get involved!

Donate to the French Red Cross – Croix Rouge

Donate to Doctors Without Borders (I gave them $20) – Medicainssansfrontiers

Donate to Catholic Relief (They’re like the Red Cross) – Secours Catholique

If you’re in France, donate blood – French Blood Service

If you are an Airbnb host, you can give someone a temporary home. Details are here.

EDIT: I’ve been informed that they hate being referred to as DAESH, so that is  how I will refer to them. Thanks, cb!
