A Good Hat For A Good Cause

At the World Horror Convention in Austin, a bunch of authors including myself, Peter Straub, William F. Nolan, Joe R. Lansdale, F. Paul Wilson, Jack Ketchum, Brian Keene, Joe Hill, John Skipp, Jeff Strand, Lynne Hansen, Yvonne Navarro, Weston Ochse, Simon Clark, Steve Niles, Nick Mamatas, Wrath James White, Lee Thomas, Mary SanGiovanni, John Everson, Chesya Burke, Richard Dansky, Sarah Langan, Rain Graves, Brett Alexander Savory, and many, many more--135 in all--signed a hat for auction, with all proceeds going to author Bryan Smith, who recently and tragically lost his wife Rachael to a long-term illness.

That hat is now up on eBay. As of this writing, the bidding is already up to $205, with 8 days left in the auction.

If this is the kind of unique collectible that gets your heart racing, please consider bidding on it. It's for a good cause, and you might even win it!
