CoGCover2 A couple of months ago, John Scalzi held a contest on his blog, taking entries for stories, plays, or other creative content based upon a thoroughly ridiculous painting depicting Wil Wheaton in a clown-face sweater riding a unicorn pegasus kitten attacking an ogre John Scalzi.

The winners of the contest are now being offered as a freely-downloadable, DRM-free e-book in a variety of formats. It is not necessary to pay to download it; however, Scalzi and the others involved in its creation are requesting that downloaders donate $5 to help fight lupus. All proceeds from this chapbook will go to the Michigan/Indiana affiliate of the Lupus Alliance of America.

It sounds like a worthy cause to me, and looks like quite an awesome project. If you download, be sure to chip in, all right?
