Adopting a Chimp

save the chimpsBecause of the phenomenal generosity of our authors Niteblade is going to support Save the Chimps by adopting a chimp!

I’m super excited. This is a cause that is close to my heart and it means more than I can say to have so many of our authors choose to donate their payment to support these chimps.

In reality all the chimps will benefit from our donation, but to make it more personal we get to choose which of twenty chimps we want to adopt.

Please pop over to the Adopt a Chimp page and take a look around. If you click on a chimp’s portrait their bio (and more photographs) will open up in a new window. When you’ve picked which one you’d like for us to adopt come back here and leave a comment with the name of the chimp you’d like to adopt. I already have my favourites, but I don’t want to bias you 😉

I will tally up the votes at the end of the month and come the beginning of October Niteblade will adopt a chimp.

Issue 25: Alice Underground

Issue 25 Issue #25: Alice Underground gets its title from a phenomenal poem by Brittany Warman and sports one of my favourite covers of all time! We certainly aren’t growing complacent as we grow older here at Niteblade, this issue packs a hell of a wallop:

Lady Mary Speaks of Dreams by Sandi Leibowitz
With The Band by Carl Barker
Bitter Mnemosyne by Sara Norja
Jonesy by Evan Purcell
Alice Underground by Brittany Warman
Starry Night by David Luntz
Le Cirque by Jess Simms
the moon, so low by Dan Campbell
The Kiss of Legend by T.H. Lee
This man by Erik Amundsen
Empire of Ash by Cameron Johnston
Not Too Bold by Shira Lipkin

You can purchase your copy of our latest issue directly from the Niteblade Store, or Amazon (coming soon to Kobo).

In other exciting news, due to the generosity of our authors we have raised enough money to adopt a chimp from Save the Chimps. I will make a post about that next week and we will hold a vote to pick exactly which chimp we’ll be adopting.
