Notice that plural. *g*
This is not the auctioneering post! (Thus, comments are turned off to avoid confusion.) This is the administration post for the auctions. Because, as is my wont, I have complicated matters:
Like I said yesterday, I'm going to auction a signed copy of The Bone Key
(Prime Books, 2007), with signed manuscript copies of the four published but uncollected Booth stories:
- "The Replacement." The Willows 2.3 (September/October 2008): 48-54.
- "White Charles" Clarkesworld Magazine 36 (September 2009).
- "The World Without Sleep." Postscripts 14 (Spring 2008): 40-64.
- "The Yellow Dressing Gown." Weird Tales 63.2 (March-April 2008): 63-69.
Minimum bid is $15.
If we go over $100,
The bidding has reached $100. The winning bidder will also receive a signed ms copy of the next Booth story I sell, whatever and whenever that may be (i.e., don't hold your breath while you wait).
ALSO, I woke up this morning and realized that here was a chance to kill two birds with one stone (yummy dead birds, as Glory says). I've made my author copies of the Doctrine of Labyrinths books into sets for the purpose of donation (as, for example, to the Virginia Avenue Project Auction), but I have two sets that are missing Corambis
(which, having been published less than a year ago, is the one easiest to find). These incomplete sets annoy me. So what I'm going to do is auction those off as follows:
1. An auction on one signed three-book set, Mélusine, The Virtu, The Mirador
. Minimum bid will be $50.
2. Three auctions, one for each book, on signed copies of Mélusine
, The Virtu
, and The Mirador
. Minimum bid will be $25 in each auction.
ETA: FYI, Mélusine
is out of print in hardback, and The Virtu
is out of print in both hardback and paperback.
As with The Bone Key
and its ancillary manuscripts, I will ship anywhere in the world.
All five auctions will begin here very shortly and will run until 1 P.M.
on Monday, February 8. If the TOTAL amount raised by the five auctions is more than $1,000, I will do a free serial podcast of The Virtu
here on my blog.
