Who you are depends on who's telling your story, and in this charity anthology, 22 authors get the chance to tell us who Anthony Cardno is. Some of these stories are horror, some are science fiction, some are westerns ... and some even have happy endings.
On the watery alien planet of Jay Lake's "Cold Statues," an orphaned boy on the good ship Anthony Cardno finally gets closure by visiting the site where his parents died.
In the far future of Mary Robinette Kowal's "The White Phoenix Feather," famous actor Anthony Cardno tries his hand at Extreme Dining. There are ninjas involved. Alien ninjas.
In modern day New York, Joseph Pittman's clever con man Todd Gleason takes on "The Antics of Anton Ardno."
In Steve Berman's ghostly "Three on a Match," college boys looking for a hook-up share cigarettes and personal ghosts of boys they've loved.
And in Kaaron Warren's brutal "The Optimist," is reincarnation into a harsh war-zone life appropriate punishment for an evil man?
The authors of these 20 stories and two songs have donated their words to help Anthony R. Cardno raise money for cancer research and support. All proceeds from the sales will go directly to the American Cancer Society's Relay For Life, to enhance their mission of providing aid and comfort to those fighting all forms or this torturous disease.
