Genre for Japan Charity AuctionRose Fox — March 21st, 2011
Floor to Ceiling Books reviewer Amanda Rutter, Solaris editor Jenni Hill, BFS reviewer Louise Morgan, blogger Ro Smith, and Hub editor Alasdair Stuart have formed Genre for Japan, an SF/F-themed auction to benefit the British Red Cross Tsunami Appeal. Josh and I have many friends and relatives in Japan, and we’re very glad to promote this excellent cause.
According to the press release, items already donated include “a year’s supply of books from Tor, signed artwork from Solaris Books and editing/critiques from professional authors and editors.” The @genreforjapan Twitter feed also mentions a package of a dozen Gollancz masterworks and signed books from Lauren Beukes and Joe Abercrombie.
The deadline for donations is Friday, March 25th, so if you have something to offer, offer it soon! Bidding opens on March 28th.
In fact, we were delighted to see so many of you out there mentioning us on your blogs, Twitter feeds and websites. Thank you all for your support.
