The Shirley Jackson Awards Lottery is now in full swing! Last year I helped this estimable new darkfic award raise money by editing their benefit anthology Jack Haringa Must Die!
Rather than choose someone else to kill off this year -- consider yourself lucky, imago1
; that beard-trimming incident I had planned for you would have been brutal! -- the good folks behind the awards have decided on something even more apropos to the Shirley Jackson legacy: a lottery!You can find all the good stuff being auctioned off here
. But hurry, you only have until February 23!
Fine items all, and if I had a kajillion dollars I would throw money behind each and every one of them. Unfortunately, I had to be very selective instead. Here's what I bid on. If you win them and I don't, the savage beard-trimmer is coming for you too!
+ A tuckerization by Rick Bowes, the Godfather of Greenwich Village!
+ A tuckerization by suricattus
, just because I want to see what awful thing she's been waiting all these years to inflict upon me!
+ A signed copy of Gahan Wilson's The Cleft and Other Odd Tales
, because I've been searching for an affordable copy of this out of print collection for years!
+ A personally inscribed galley of The Little Sleep
, the Big Brute of Beantown!
+ And a porn tuckerization by nihilistic_kid
, the Bad Boy of the Bay Area whose erotic tales always end in loneliness and misery--just like in real life!
There's plenty of other cool stuff for you to choose from too, if you're so inclined. Each raffle ticket is only $1, though you can buy as many tickets as you like for each item, to increase your odds of winning (as long as it's not one of the things I want, you monsters!). Check it out, see if there's anything that strikes your fancy, and bid to benefit the Shirley Jackson Awards!
