The Acorn Gathering: Writers Uniting Against Cancer isn’t a novel, but it was quite a novel idea created by author Duane Simolke, who gathered a group of authors together, five in all, to write against cancer in this lovley literary work that includes stories that range from gritty and controversial to gentle and touching, all helping to raise money for cancer cure research.

Simolke, who edited the book, writes in Fat Diary, what some may consider a controversially serious yet comical short fiction work, “I stifled the stereotypes that flooded my mind, and I mentally kicked myself for thinking of those stereotypes.”

Ironically, the story is written as if it were the diary of Pam Willard, the 260-lbs. character keeping the diary.

Huda Orfali’s Lynching takes a gritty look at violent acts taken toward homosexuals due to discrimination, and what horrible results can occur when individuals fail to deal with their prejudices.

In The Flamenco Painter, Shawna Chandler paints a heart-felt picture of a man’s clouded conscience after losing someone special and close.

Bill Wetzel writes about a man’s love for a woman who turns out to be a complete klutz, but it turns out that the klutziness is one of the things the man really loves about the woman, in A Morning By the River.

You can read all about a single teacher named Jonathan and his love for a woman named Ana in The 23rd of August by Timothy Morris Taylor. You can read about the many obstacles Jonathan overcame to be with Ana – obstacles that those who are truly in love overcome, no matter what. It’s an inspiring story, showing us that no matter what obstacle gets in our way, love really does conquer each and every one.

Jan Chandler writes, in The Gun, “I grabbed the gun off the night stand, the first time I’d even touched it. I was going to take it into the kitchen and throw it in the trash can.”

“That’s when I heard the door slam.”

“I almost wet myself.”

There are also some quite touching stories in the book, including Orfali’s Dancing With the Angels.

This book makes a spectacular holiday gift for the fiction lover in your life, and when purchasing The Acorn Gathering: Writers Uniting Against Cancer for that special someone this holiday season, you are not only buying a fantastic collection of short fiction to enjoy. You are also helping these authors to raise money for cancer cure research.

For the millions of Americans who suffer from cancer, The Acorn Gathering is truly a wonderful gift to which they contributed their writing gifts. Now it is up to readers everywhere to pick up where the authors left off and start reading for a cure.

With stories as good as these, it will be hard for readers to resist this book, whether reading for a cure or simply reading as a personal pleasure for themselves.

    regarding your articles on writeeers raising money to fight cancer , you should see my website, . Your continued blind donations without demanding returns is not helping find a cure , in fact you are holding it back. Don’t believe me, go to my website. By the way , I am a cancer survivor who ‘s research has been suppressed . Thank you. E.A. Greenhalgh

    Your website’s allegations on mis-expenditures by government research agencies have nothing to do with this book or the review posted here. If you would like your book to be reviewed, I suggest you contact the author of this post, rather than spamming the forum. Thank you.

    Dear Sir
    i cannot post the whole text as its very long and detailed.
    i will post the first few paragraphs and a link to it at another site.

    Every day we are told about millions of people suffering from Aids by the mass media.

    You will be surprised and astonished to learn a cure for Aid exists discovered a few years ago.

    The main problem with this cure is due to its extreme low cost.

    The low cost competes with the very expensive patented anti-Aids
    drugs which generate revenues from $5000 to $20000 per patient.

    The cure is described below in detail and a trial study on humans and animals demonstatred its effectiveness.

    I ask people in this forum to repeat the experiments to satisfy themselves and implement this cure.

    If you cannot do this then I ask you to please inform other people who may be able or in a position to do so. Especially doctors in third world countries.

    The cure has broad spectrum applications and is not confined to Aids but many other infectious blood related diseases as explained below.

    This device can easily be miniturised to fit on the wrist or arm and in essence consists of nothing more than a silver needle inserted into the vein and an extremely small current passed from this needle electrode to another flat electrode in contact with the surface of the skin.

    a simple low cost microchip could control the on/off cycle of this very small current and its very low level as detailed below.

    We can nowadays buy a DVD player for about $35 and this contains motors,transformers,lasers,complex microchips,decoding software,wires,resistors,etc and all this for only $35!

    The device below is about 10000 times less complicated and only uses a few components and can easily be mass produced for a few dollars or even cents.

    It uses a single 1.5 AA battery and a variable resistor in series to reduce the current down to the 0.000001 amp range.
    A simple circuit or microchip can be made to automatically switch on/off this very small current to the small pure silver needle inserted into a vein and or monitor it to keep it within preset levels as described below.

    Alternatively the current can be manuelly monitered using a meter and a clock.

    The same device can be used repeatedly on different patients after replacing/sterilising the needle.

    I hope you can see the cost implications as compared to patented expensive consumable drugs and understand the political and economic significance of this extreme low cost.
