I've donated one first-edition hardcover copy of each of The Dubious Hills and Juniper, Gentian, and Rosemary to the Con or Bust auction. Bidding opens on May 25th. Even if you don't need a copy of either book, there is the usual amazing variety of other things to bid on -- dozens of books, of course, some signed, some not yet released by publishers; and everything else from custom-made chocolates and lovely jewellery, to novel and short-story critiques by people who know what they're doing

Here are the links to my books:

Auctions for Con or Bust are live now. You can get signed prints by Terri Windling, handmade scarves and shawls in gorgeous colors, a set of Sherwood Smith's Inda books, dozens more books of all sorts, from ARCs to old paperbacks, a critique of your fiction from a professional, and, though I don't happen to have seen any in my first pass, probably cookies.

Here is where:

And this is what:

"Con or Bust is administered by the Carl Brandon Society, a 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to increase racial and ethnic diversity in the production of and audience for speculative fiction. Con or Bust isn't a scholarship and isn't limited by geography, type of con-goer, or con; its goal is simply to help fans of color go to SFF cons and be their own awesome selves."

I am hoping to put a couple of books up myself, but feel it would be better to locate them first and then offer them. If I manage to put an auction together, I'll post here to let you guys know. In the meantime, there is no shortage at all of amazing things to bid on.

Con or Bust is pleased to announce that as of this very moment, and through May 31, fans of color/non-white fans may request assistance to attend SFF cons in July, August, and September 2011.

Because there was no advance notice that we'd be taking requests, please repost and link to this post far and wide so that people know that assistance is possible. I will announce the precise amount after WisCon, but a minimum of $700 will be available to help fans of color attend cons for the next three months, plus two memberships to Renovation.

These cons are taking place in July-September and are supporting Con or Bust:
  • Renovation, the 2011 WorldCon, Reno, Nevada, USA, August 17-21 (donated memberships);
  • Readercon, Burlington, Massachusetts, USA, July 14-17 (donated money).
Read this post for how to request assistance. Donate con memberships by e-mailing Donate money with a PayPal account or credit card with this button:

Or learn more about Con or Bust generally. And thank you for your help in spreading the word!
