Harry Turtledove Makes Terminal Cancer Patient’s Dream Come True

While his friend Nachu Bhatnagar battled terminal cancer, Reddit user Kivakid turned to the online community to help make his friend’s wish come true: to find out how Harry Turtledove’s book series The War That Came Early will end.

Through the magic of Reddit, an editor in the Reddit community gave this reader a gift he will never forget. You can watch  Bhatnagar receive his gift in the video embedded above–the moving video contains a bit of NSFW language.

Here’s more from Social Times: “While the concluding books in the series won’t be out for a few years, the publisher sent an advanced copy of the latest book in the series and Harry Turtledove even agreed to speak on the phone with Nachu about the rest of the series. This amazingly heartwarming story wouldn’t have been possible without Reddit.”
