Loren Rhoads has collected over 20 stories from Northern California authors for the charity anthology, Tales for the Camp Fire. Nearly 100 people were confirmed dead and the town of Paradise scoured from the map in California’s 2018 Camp Fire wildfire. The contributions range from fairytale to science fiction, from psychological terror to magical realism, from splatterpunk to black humor, all rounded out by a messed-up post-apocalyptic cookbook. All profits from the sale of this anthology will be donated to Camp Fire relief and recovery efforts. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07Q4Z32VP.
