Because we’re a magazine, the first idea we had was to involve writers and artists. So we’ve started Post a Story For Haiti. We’ve asked anyone who wants to help to post fiction and art to their blogs, sites, etc. for free, with big DONATE buttons at the top and/or bottom that links to Doctors Without Borders, the Red Cross and Rainbow Fund, or any of the organizations participating in the relief efforts. That way even writers/artists who struggle financially as we do can lend a hand.Crossed Genres is not collecting any money themselves, instead they are directing people who would like to contribute to donate directly to organizations such as the International Red Cross, Doctors Without Borders, or Rainbow World Fund.
Authors and artists who wish to participate will have their contributions linked on the Crossed Genres Post a Story for Haiti page. Authors have already posted some excellent stories in response.
If you are looking for fiction with a biological bent, I'd recommend "Selective Breeding" by Bart R. Leib or the entire issue of M-Brane #12. And if you enjoyed what you read, consider making a donation.
ETA: Since I first wrote this post, many more authors have contributed. With more than 60 stories to choose from I'd say start reading anywhere.
