Help an author this Christmas

The heart, it bleeds.  I saw the sad plea on John Scalzi’s site, a giant green banner that says “Fuck You. Pay Me.”  It’s tragic that after a short, but glorious career of prostituting himself in a literary manner, he’s been forced to turn to literal prostitution in order to buy his family Christmas Holiday presents this year.

Won’t you please buy a copy of one of his Heinlein derivatives, or his Piper derivative, or his Star Trek derivative?  If enough of us join together and help out, perhaps he’ll not only be able to afford Christmas Holiday presents, but an original idea for a novel too!
