He asked friends for short stories—of the science fiction and fantasy varieties—and created an anthology to raise money. The fundraiser for his own treatment yielded the first Unfettered anthology. Speakman—now healthy—continues to raise money to help authors with medical debt with the third Unfettered anthology. University Bookstore, Free
