Final Week, More Prizes

We are entering the final week of our fund raising drive, and we have two very exciting new prizes to add to the list. They are:

From Nicola Griffith, a copy of her memoir, And Now We Are Going to Have a Party. This is not just a memoir though. The boxed set includes the memoir bound in five volumes (including diary entries, photographs, poetry, and early fiction). The box also contains a facsimile of Nicola’s first book (created age 4), a CD of songs by Nicola and her early-’80s punk band, Janes Plane, as well as three scratch-n-sniff cards, a fold-out poster, a letterpressed preface by Dorothy Allison, and a numbered signing sheet. This is a limited edition of 450 signed and numbered box sets and it is going for $75 on Amazon.

From Andy Sawyer at the University of Liverpool we have a copy of the recently discovered John Wyndham novel, Plan for Chaos. This is the book in which Wyndham does Nazi clones long before The Boys from Brazil was thought of. There is a Penguin paperback of this book available, but we have a copy of the University of Liverpool hardcover edition that is $85 on Amazon.

As a reminder, the rest of the prizes are:

  • A signed copy of The Graveyard Book donated by Neil Gaiman
  • A signed copy of Finch, donated by Jeff VanderMeer
  • A selection of 5 issues of Weird Tales (including the International issue). Donated by Ann VanderMeer
  • A signed copy of Evaporating Genres, donated by Gary K. Wolfe
  • A signed copy of the limited edition hardback of The Reality Dysfunction (Subterranean), donated by Peter F. Hamilton
  • Signed copies of Living With Ghosts (DAW) and The Four Musketeers: the true story of d’Artagnan, Porthos, Aramis and Athos, donated by Kari Sperring
