More Organizations Support Ukraine

We posted previously about the PEN International statement in opposition to Russia’s attack on Ukraine. Other organizations have also added their voices to the chorus of opposition to the war.

The Horror Writers Association says:

The HWA condemns the Russian invasion of Ukraine. We stand for democracy. We stand for truth. We stand for freedom of speech and freedom of the press. We support the people of Ukraine, including authors, editors, and journalists, as well as the people of Russia who are bravely protesting this attack. We hope to see a swift end to this senseless act of war.

For more, see their statement.

The Authors Guild, “the U.S.’s leading and oldest nonprofit advocacy organization for published writers and journalists,” also released a statement. They condemn

Russian President Vladimir Putin’s invasion of the sovereign nation of Ukraine. We express our support for Ukrainian authors and journalists and all the Ukrainian people fighting bravely against their Russian aggressors to retain the right for Ukraine to be a free and democratic nation.

Eric Flint’s Ring of Fire Press and 1632 Inc., “the world’s largest multi-author shared universe,” have also announced “their solidarity with the freedom-loving people of Ukraine.” Editor-in-chief Walt Boyes tells us,

One percent of the revenue of Ring of Fire Press will be donated to Doctors Without Borders for use in the Ukraine catastrophe. In addition, authors Gorg Huff and Paula Goodlett have asked us to announce that they are donating the royalties from their 1632 Series Russian novels to Doctors without Borders. These novels are A Mission for the Czar and A Holmes for the Czar and Two Cases for the Czar. We are encouraging other Ring of Fire Press authors to join this effort.

The donation period will run from now until June 30, 2022.
