I keep forgetting that you all are not in my head. I want to point you at this post by macklinr and this post by drivingblind.

"...Finis: A Book of Endings to Give People New Beginnings

If you've ever read Choose Your Own Adventure books, there were generally a number of ways that you would die or fail. This project is a collection of unconnected short stories in a style that emulates those horrible fates. The idea is that each story is completely contained in two facing pages, so that a reader can flip to a random page in the book, and in that way choose their fate.

After Hurricane Katrina did such devastating damage to the Gulf Coast back in 2005, and after seeing and hearing about the aftermath, I wanted to do something. I gave money to the Red Cross, but I wanted to do more. I had this Choose Your Own Fate idea a few months back, and thought it would be an interesting collaboration project for charity. After posting about this idea on this very blog, I got such a good amount of feedback that I decided to go ahead with it.

100% of the proceeds from this book will go to American Red Cross Hurricane Relief.

You might be familiar with some of the people on the project:
* Paul Tevis of Have Games, Will Travel and The Voice of the Revolution fame
* Jennifer Brozek, author for Sovereign Press & Margaret Weis Productions, as well as the mind and soul behind The Edge of Propinquity
* Fred Hicks of Evil Hat Productions, layout guru to the stars ..."

It also includes photography by fullcontactmuse. Take a look at a sample page:
