What does DFTBA mean? Dinosaurs Fail To Beat Asteroid? Darling, Fetch The Battle Axe? Doctors First Tracheotomy Botched Awfully? No. It stands for "Don't Forget To Be Awesome", advice that all of the contributors to this anthology definitely listened to.
What do we mean when we say "An act of Charity"? How can it be interpreted? How can we understand it? This is what this anthology seeks to examine. Inside are fifteen stories by fifteen writers from the phenomenal "Nerdfighter" on-line community, founded by John and Hank Green (NY Times best-selling YA novelist and renown internet entrepreneur/pioneer respectively) that each take the concept of "An act of Charity" and explore it in innovative and exciting ways.
From a chance meeting in a hospital resulting in an act of great kindness, to an interstellar aid transport encountering an unexpected delay. From moral quandaries in a world running low on blood, to two women dealing with the difficult sides of autism. This anthology is a wide and varied response to a simple, but deeply multifaceted idea.
