Glenn Chadbourne’s longtime good friend Rick Hautala died unexpectedly on March 21, 2013, leaving his wife with bills that need to be paid.

Longtime Rick Hautala publisher Cemetery Dance has come up with an offer that will help benefit the Hautala family. It involves a special edition of Brian James Freeman’s Blue November Storms. From the CD website:

NOTE FOR COLLECTORS — SPECIAL COPIES TO HELP RICK HAUTALA’S FAMILY:

As you may already know, long-time Cemetery Dance author and friend Rick Hautala passed away suddenly earlier this month. Fundraiser efforts are currently under way to help his family in their time of need, and Glenn Chadbourne and Brian James Freeman have decided to create a special version of this novella to help speed that fundraising along.

We’re now accepting preorders for special copies of this novella featuring stunning COLOR REMARQUES by Glenn Chadbourne. Glenn will be donating his entire art fee to the Hautala family. Brian will also be donating all of his earnings from each of these special copies. (A remarque is an original drawing made in the actual book by the artist, which makes that copy of the book a unique collectible. You can see some of Glenn’s more elaborate color remarques here.)

These special copies will be also signed by Ray Garton, Brian James Freeman, and Glenn Chadbourne. Glenn is going all out to make these copies unique for the collectors who help us support the Hautala family and these remarqued versions of the book will ship approximately one month after the signed copies.

You can read about the book and order copies from the Cemetery Dance website.
