Kate Nepveu has announced the opening of this year's "Con or Bust" fundraiser to help send people of color to Wiscon. I attended last year's Wiscon and was delighted to meet a number of the fen of color who took advantage of the offer of assistance last year. I can't attend Wiscon this year due to the wedding of some friends, but I encourage everyone who can to support this cause to continue the diversification of dialogue (and socialization) at Wiscon. You can support through monetary donation, by donating something to auction, or by bidding on auction items (Bidding opens this wednesday, February 24) Full details here. Please spread the word.
I will be donating a Deluxe Limited Edition copy of Moonheart by Charles de Lint, illustrated by Charles Vess and signed by both, as well as a 1st edition of Anansi Boys, signed by the author - Neil has happily agreed to personalize it to the winner of the auction.
I'll post links to those particular auctions when bidding opens. In the meantime, please consider donating something.
