Dave Wolverton is best known to Star Wars fans as the man who wrote The Courtship of Princess Leia. Wolverton's website recently shared some bad news: his son Ben was in a serious accident and is currently in a coma. In order to help raise money for Ben's medical costs, Wolverton's website is organizing a "book bomb." On Wednesday, April 10th -- that's tomorrow -- readers are encouraged to buy a copy of one (or more) of Wolverton's books, which include Nightingale (which he wrote under the pen name David Falkland) and Million Dollar Outlines.
Check out the Facebook event page for the book bomb here. It has links to Wolverton's various novels. There's also a direct donation page for Ben's medical costs here. We encourage our readers to help out Dave and Ben Wolverton and spread the word about tomorrow's book bomb.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the Wolverton family, and we wish Ben a safe and speedy recovery.
Thanks to Bryan Young for letting us know about this event.
Rebelscum Breast Cancer Awareness Charity Patch Posted By Philip on November 25, 2014: Thanks to everybody that ordered patches. I sent a check for $1,600.00 to the National Breast Cancer Foundation on Monday. While it's not as much as I hoped for, it's still very much appreciated. They will remain for sale in the store for anybody that still wishes to purchase them. Details after the jump.
