Silence in the Library Publishing is pleased to announce the launch of Dance Like a Monkey, a science fiction and fantasy anthology featuring over 30 top authors to benefit author CJ Henderson. All funds from the project not used for actual printing and shipping will go directly to CJ and his family to help defray the cost of his ongoing battle with recurring cancer.


Among the many authors involved in the project are: Kevin J. Anderson and Rebecca Moesta, Maggie Allen, Jack Dann, Ed Greenwood, Joe Haldeman, Nancy and Belle Holder, Tanya Huff, Gail Z. Martin, Danielle Ackley-McPhail, Jean Rabe, Mike Resnik, Hildy Silverman, Janine Spendlove, Michael A. Stackpole, Anton Strout, Kelly Swails, Robert E. Vardeman, Elizabeth A. Vaughan, Bryan Young, Jean Marie Ward, Gene Wolfe, and Timothy Zahn. And, of course, CJ Henderson. And many, many more.

CJ has spent decades of his life entertaining and edifying readers. His unrelenting humor and joy for life have been lights in the darkest times not just for his readers, but also for fellow authors. Please join the many amazing authors, artists, publishers, and other professionals who have come together to support CJ in his time of need.

The thing is, by backing this project, you not only get to feel good about helping a good human being in need, you also get a great anthology that, if we are able to add all of the stretch goal authors, totals somewhere around 200,000 words. That’s a huge book, packed full of science fiction and fantasy goodness.
