We stand with the people of Ukraine! While we love to write and read clean, light-hearted sci-fi, and believe it’s a legitimate form of entertainment, neither do we advocate sticking our heads in the sand and ignoring what’s going on in the world. Franklin Street Press has committed a regular percentage of its profits to assisting Ukraine since the war began.
If you’d like to show support for the people of Ukraine, here are some of the ways you can help. Please consider giving to a worthy charity.
