icon-unfetteredWhen I published Unfettered, I did so out of need.

Now that my medical debt from treating 2011’s Hodgkin’s lymphoma is gone, I can focus on helping others. I have been given a great platform; I plan on using it to help people. It’s my way of paying it forward.

Unfettered II will publish in October 2015. It features a stellar line-up of science fiction and fantasy writers, all contributing short stories to raise money. Where will that money go? It will go toward alleviating medical debt for other authors and artists who find themselves in the same situation I was in.

In this way, we will protect those who bring us such entertainment and joy with their words and art. No one should have to go through the stress I did in 2011. No one.

Here is a list of the writers who have turned in their stories already:

  • ■ Joe Abercrombie
  • ■ Bradley Beaulieu
  • ■ Terry Brooks
  • ■ Rachel Caine
  • ■ David Farland
  • ■ Charlaine Harris
  • ■ Mark Lawrence
  • ■ Brian McClellan
  • ■ Seanan McGuire
  • ■ Peter Orullian
  • ■ J.A. Pitts
  • ■ Kat Richardson
  • ■ Anthony Ryan
  • ■ Shawn Speakman
  • ■ Django Wexler

List updated: June 5, 2015

That is about half of the list. When the other contributors turn in their stories, they will be announced here and on social media! I will also begin taking pre-orders on July 1, 2015!

Unfettered II is coming in October 2015!

  1. When will the preorders for the S&N edition be available?

  2. Fingers crossed Unfettered II sees the return of Brandon Sanderson.

    1. And Terry Brooks…

      1. Both Terry and Brandon are involved, yes. 🙂

  3. Fingers crossed for Michael J. Sullivan and John Gwynne.

    1. Michael is involved. I haven’t invited John though. Might have to do that for Unfettered III.

      1. So bummed I missed Unfettered I … But at least I am in on Unbound and The Unremembered … and there will always be Unfettered II … Thanks Shawn. Unfettered I looks great BTW!

        1. Looks like you can still order Unfettered if you want it. See above right of page $35.

          1. I’m sure he’s talking about the S&N edition of the book.

      2. That’s great news!

  4. I missed out on the Unfettered S&N as well but due to finances at the time, unfortunately. However, I have both the Dark Thorn and have ordered Unbound in S&N and have set funds aside in hopes of being able to order Unfettered II when it become available. But I will say that I have enjoyed picking up the special ARC’s of these editions as well. All of these books are fantastic additions to my collection, but the reading is worth every second you spend! Now I am off to look at The Unremembered that was mentioned above……

  5. Have you thought about contacting Brent Weeks or Terry Goodkind? Other than those 2 you have pretty much hit all my favorite authors!

  6. I have not seen the pre-order for Unfettered II. Did I miss something, or did the pre-order get delayed?


    1. The pre-order for Unfettered II will start March 1st. 🙂

  7. Any update on when Unfettered II will be available for pre-order?
