Genre For Japan Charity Auction

March 28, 2011

After the recent devastating events in Japan, various members of the speculative fiction community decided to band together to help raise relief funds to aid those affected and organized Genre for Japan, a charity auction where 100% of the money raised will go directly to the Japan Tsunami Appeal fund run by the British Red Cross.

Hundreds of items have been donated by publishers, authors and artists from the genre including appearances in novels, signed copies of books, ARCs, proofs and artwork, professional critiques and manuscript edits and much much more.

The auction went live today and bidding will remain open until Sunday night (3rd April).  A full list of the lots available for bidding can be found here and the rules and details on how to bid on items can be found here.

I’ve donated a selection of artwork for one of the lots comprising of 2 signed prints and 10 signed dust jackets. You can find out the full details and make bids here.

Please support this charity auction if you can and do take the time to browse through the list of items on auction.  There are some fantastic items up for bidding and with the bidding starting as low as £o on some lots you may be able to pick up some great bargains whilst supporting such a worthwhile cause.

A special mention and thanks should go to Amanda Rutter, Louise Morgan, Jenni Hill, Ro Smith, Alasdair Stuart and Robert Mulligan whose brainchild this was and who have all put in a lot of time and hard-work to make this possible.
