A group of science fiction and fantasy authors have joined forces to raise funds for Jay Lake's struggle against cancer by committing Acts of Whimsy on the internet. One of these was Paul Cornell's rendition of Kate Bush's "Wuthering Heights" with the assistance of his new son. This is the beat poetry rendition of the automatic YouTube transcript of that performance.

Jay Lake is an award-winning American author of ten science fiction novels and over 300 short stories. He is also one of more than a million Americans who have colon cancer. Diagnosed in April, 2008, Jay's cancer has progressed from a single tumor to metastatic disease affecting the lung and liver, recurring after multiple surgeries and chemotherapy courses, and multiplying from single tumor presentations to multiple tumors presentations. Jay is now in his fourth round of chemotherapy, but it's not clear that it's working, and his doctors have little to go on in terms of advising further courses of treatment for him. In short, things are not looking good for Jay. Not at all.

But with the help of people like you, we're making Jay laugh and hopefully getting a step closer to finding an effective treatment.
