This promises to be an excellent collection of short stories and for an excellent cause. Help out and get a good read at the same time. Thanks to Pete Rozovsky over at Detectives Without Borders for hosting this.

Timothy Hallinan, the Japan America Society of Southern California, 111shakenand twenty talented authors have teamed up to produce Shaken: Stories for Japan, available now for just $3.99. One hundred percent of the proceeds of this e-book will benefit the society's 2011 Japan Relief Fund.
Contributors include Hallinan, Adrian McKinty, I.J. Parker, Brett Battles, Cara Black, Vicki Doudera, Dianne Emley, Dale Furutani, Stefan Hammond, Rosemary Harris, Naomi Hirahara, Wendy Hornsby, Ken Kuhlken, Debbi Mack, Gary Phillips, Hank Phillippi Ryan, Jeffrey Siger, Kelli Stanley, C.J.

Most, but not all, of the pieces are crime fiction. McKinty's is a touching account o Matsushima Bay before the March 11 earthquake and tsunami, for example. The book's distribution through Amazon promises prompt release of proceeds, Hallinan says, so buy now. The cause is good, the gratification instant.
