Il primo settembre 2011, nella recensione a ‘Risvegliarsi in uno strano posto’ di Eric Arvin, TJ Klune scrisse “[…] non è arrivare da qualche parte ciò che conta, è il viaggio […]”. Con quelle parole, due uomini iniziarono il loro percorso d’amore, invitandoci a seguirli. Eric e TJ hanno condiviso molto con noi: i loro meravigliosi libri, i sorrisi, le battute, la quotidianità e l’ammirevole dedizione con cui si sono dedicati l’uno all’altro. A dicembre del 2013, il loro viaggio ha subito una deviazione inaspettata quando Eric è stato ricoverato d’urgenza. È sopravvissuto all’operazione per l’asportazione di un emangioma cavernoso dal tronco cerebrale, ma le battaglie che ancora aspettano i nostri due ragazzi sono ben lontane dall’essere concluse.

Gli autori presenti in questa antologia (e i traduttori) hanno donato il loro talento per sostenere il ricovero prolungato di Eric, aiutare TJ a recuperare energie e mostrare a entrambi quanto sono amati. Grand Adventures raccoglie storie di tutti i tipi che hanno in comune il cammino dell’amore. Ci stiamo imbarcando in una grande avventura a sostegno di una nobile causa, vi ringraziamo per averci seguito.

La totalità degli introiti di questo volume è destinata a Eric e TJ.

In 1975 Douglas “King” Fisher is a teenage crusader who, with the help of his three friends, keeps the environs of Warden High bully-free. On the last day of school he is about to leave, thinking his job is done, when he answers one last call for help, never dreaming this particular intervention will make much more of a difference than he can possibly imagine.

Thirty-five years later, King lives a quiet, deeply closeted, completely unremarkable life, far different from the destiny he was bound for on that long ago summer day. An unfortunate accident sidelined his dreams, and he never left town. While he never “made his mark,” he still does whatever he can to make things better for everyone—except himself.

He sees no value in what he is or what he does. He doesn’t think he’s a hero, but he has one: larger than life Rex Rodman, 80s action hero and former idol of millions. His impossible dream. Or is he? With his fifty-seventh birthday swiftly approaching, King is about to learn some amazing lessons about himself from the last teacher he’d ever expect.

On September 1, 2011, TJ Klune wrote, "...it's not about the ending, it's about the journey..." in a review of Eric Arvin's Woke Up in a Strange Place. With those words, two men began a journey of love and invited us to ride along. TJ and Eric have shared so much with us: their wonderful books, their smiles, their humor, their lives, and their inspiring devotion to each other. In December of 2013, their journey took a detour when Eric was taken to the emergency room. He survived the surgery to remove a cavernous hemangioma from his brain stem, but the challenges TJ and Eric face are far from over.

The authors in this anthology donated their talent as a way to support Eric's continued recovery, to help bring strength to TJ, and to show both of them just how much love surrounds them. Grand Adventures is a diverse range of stories about the journey of love. We’re going on some grand adventures for a great cause. Thank you for joining us.

Gil Donigan has made a career of treating the word “love” like something from an NFL playbook. Then he meets Devon Drake, and for the first time says “I love you” and really means it. Devon immediately bolts, and that was the last thing Gil expected. But maybe he had it coming; he got as good as he’d ever given. Karma's a bitch, he thinks, but he’ll take the hit like a man. His new game plan? Shake off the heartbreak and move on, but Gil may need to rethink his recovery when Devon turns up on his doorstep with an enigmatic box, begging for a chance to explain.

Ellery James, a celebrated author of historical romances, shuns the spotlight, preferring the solitude of his small town sanctuary to risking media scrutiny. He harbors a closely guarded secret that is not only the bane of his existence, but the source and inspiration of his bestsellers.

His strictly proscribed existence goes south and sideways when the grimly dangerous Boone Dantrell blazes into Ellery's life. Ellery is alarmed to experience a tentative but undeniable connection to the haunted, mysterious stranger with secrets of his own, and the burgeoning attraction between them grows almost as swiftly as the danger dogging Boone.

They’ve barely met before their secrets and worlds collide, thrusting them both into unimaginable peril. The battle they must wage together spans this world—and the next—and losing it could cost them not only their lives, but their very souls.
