… l trouble – trouble severe enough so that, according to his friend Adrienne Leigh, it’s currently difficult for him to buy groceries.

In a nutshell, Beagle was the victim of a scammer. As a result of this, Beagle is both broke and embroiled in an expensive lawsuit. Here are three ways you can help.

SHORT-TERM: Give a birthday gift directly to Peter Beagle via his paypal. If you’re known to me, contact me directly for Beagle’s email address (you can email me, or just leave a message in the comments asking me to email you; if you do that, make sure you comment using your real email address!); or you can go to Adrienne Leigh on Twitter and DM her for the email address.

These birthday gifts can be used by Peter Beagle for his household’s immediate day to day needs. (And yes, his birthday is this week!) Please say “happy birthday!” in the Paypal message area.

LONG-TERM:
Go to the Support Peter Beagle website and use the button there to contribute to a fund to help pay for Peter Beagle’s legal costs.

BUY THE HUMBLE BUNDLE!
Peter Beagle has curated a Humble Bumble of unicorn fiction, called “Save the Unicorns.” You can pay as little as $1 to get a ton of novels to read, and support Peter Beagle at the same time! Important: In “choose where your money goes,” pick 100% Tachyon Press. Peter Beagle will get royalties and such from Tachyon for these Humble Bumble sales.

To be kept up-to-date on Peter Beagle news, follow @RealPeterBeagle on Twitter.

I’ve researched and found this terrible news to be true.
This isn’t mermaids - but still in the realm of the fantastic and beautiful (Peter S. Beagle himself being those things…as well as his stories). 
I would appreciate if my followers could spread this around. Creatives are constantly being taken advantage of, and it’s unfortunate to hear that even Beagle is not immune to this reality. 
If you can’t donate, please reblog - don’t just like. Beagle is such a kind and well meaning soul, who shouldn’t have to endure this kind of shit in his later life.

Me and my mutual followers that never seem to actually talk but we like and reblog each other’s posts:

This is weirdly specific, but yes, that’s it
