Helping Vera with Sporty

This news has been circulating throughout Live Journal and the Internet for the past two days, but I think it's still worth mentioning here. Right now there's a fundraiser and charity auction underway for Vera Nazarian, a speculative writer and publisher, to help save her house from foreclosure. Vera is "facing foreclosure due to a series of truly unfortunate events (a fradulent lawsuit, mother's illness, father's death and sub-prime mortgage)." The complete story is here:

I've donated a signed copy of Sporty Spec: Games of the Fantastic to the charity auction. The current bid (including shipping) is $10, which was the minimum bid I set. (The list price for Sporty Spec is $13.95, $12.55 at amazon.com, and shipping will be at least $2.50.) If you'd like to help someone out of a tight spot and get a cool book in the bargain, place your bid here:

Thanks!

(ETA: Current bid is now $12.)
