On Facebook it's being reported that author Brian Keene suffered major burns today on his arm, head and face in some sort of accident. He is reportedly currently in the hospital receiving treatment. A gofundme page has been set up to help with his costs as he is uninsured.

Without reliable news source confirmation I always take these stories with a grain of salt, but in addition to seeing it posted on a horror book group, the Scares That Care page, a charity that Keene regularly supports, has also posted the info, so I find that to add credibility.

If you want the link to the gofundme campaign you can search for the Scares That Care FB page or on gofundme's site.

Thanks for the link Nancy, he referred to himself as "Kentucky Fried Brian" so he's obviously keeping his wicked sense of humour. I better support him by buying more of his books.

Apparently he was burning some brush and the wind shifted, burning his face and his left arm. :(

Ironically, he just hosted a 24 hour telethon to raise $20,000.00 for SCARES THAT CARE, which is a charity that helps 3 people per year, one of them always a victim of burns. :(

It's nice to see that his GO FUND ME has raised over $30,000.00 in just a short time.

A pic of him all wrapped up but in good spirits in the hospital was posted on FB today. Poor guy. Good to see people have rallied to help him with the costs.
