Author Harry Turtledove spoils his series for terminally ill man
It's a good thing you're already cutting onions in a room filled with dust, because this story could quite possibly absolutely make you cry. io9 has this: "Nachu Bhatnagar is a huge fan of author Harry Turtledove's The War That Came Early alternate history novel series. Sadly, Nachu also suffers from terminal cancer and may pass away this June. His friend, Reddit user Kivakid, turned to that particular online community for help contacting Turtledove, so that Nachu could learn the end of his favorite series. And thanks to Reddit, Kikavid made contact with Turtledove ... What happened next is pretty amazing. Nachu received an advance copy of Turtledove's next novel, which hits stores in July. The author also agreed to spoil the entire War series in a phone call (or possible face-to-face meeting) with Nachu."
