As some of you know, if you keep up with the Wild Cards consortium and/or the life and times of science fiction and fantasy novelist Victor Milan … Victor has had a rough time of it lately. A few months ago he fell severely ill and was hospitalized for three weeks, undergoing several rounds of surgery; and like a good many of us professional creatives, he is hideously under-insured.
Therefore, our mutual friend and fellow writer Sara Harvey has set up a LiveJournal auction site to help offset his copious medical bills. You can find that auction site here – and I love what she called it. Click and go see.
I do in fact plan to donate something to this auction, though I might hold out for one of my author’s copies of Clementine. This means I won’t be able to chip in until next month (sorry Victor!). But if things wrap up sooner than that, I don’t want to miss the boat — so I’ll throw one of my very, very last copies of a first edition Boneshaker.
Anyway, I’ll find something to toss in the pot, and I’ll mention it here when I do.
So if you’d like to help out one hell of a guy — either by donating an auction item or bidding on one — go check out that community and drop Sara a line. Her contact info is readily available on the profile page. And feel free to link the community (or this post) all over the place.
