Hard times for a fellow freelancer

Pelgrane Press, the publisher of the yet to be released 13th Age core book, posted some unfortunate news earlier today concerning the layout designer for the book:

Chris Huth has produced excellent art and layout for Pelgrane Press including Ashen StarsNight’s Black Agents and 13th Age. Last week his apartment suffered extensive damage from a fire. (You can read more news reports here and here.) Luckily, no one was hurt, but he and his partner have lost their home and most of their possessions. His computer and software – the tools of his trade –  and all backup drives have been destroyed with very little chance of recovery. Chris is sleeping in friends’ houses while he searches for somewhere to live.

Please go to the Pelgrane site to find out how you can help Chris and what this means for the 13th Age release schedule.  Below is a small sample of Chris’ layout work for the book:
