Mike at, er, Feces Flinging Monkey points me to this great offer:
Baen Books, a publisher of science fiction, will provide its books to fans who are blind, paralysed, or dyslexic, or are amputees, in electronic form free of charge, effective immediately.
Baen Books is making this offer in recognition of Veterans Day, and all our disabled military veterans. Many Baen authors are veterans themselves, using a military setting as the setting of their tales. Right now convalescing vets might welcome an exciting, fast-action tale to pass the time.
And how, you may ask, will vets with these serious disabilities be able to enjoy e-books? Why, a voice-activated laptop might come in handy. And Soldiers’ Angels’ Valour-IT project (which beat its $180,000 goal!) can help out in that area.
Everyone who donated will help make a difference. And Baen Books is also helping make a difference. Wow!
