Support the Annual Con or Bust Auction!

Con or Bust logo

It’s time for Con or Bust! The auction is administered by Kate Nepveu under the umbrella of the Carl Brandon Society, a not-for-profit organization named after fictional African-American fan author Carl Brandon. The Society is dedicated to increasing ethnic diversity in the SFF community, and holds this annual online auction to help fans of color attend the SFF con of their choosing. This year they’re offering a wide range of fabulous prizes, including rare Wheel of Time art, signed first editions, and handmade gifts.

The auction closes at 4:00pm on Sunday, May 3rd, so get your bids in soon!

There is lots of fabulous stuff to be had in this auction, but just to give a partial list:

  • A signed first edition set of all four of Saga Press’s launch titles, including A Grace of Kings by Ken Liu, Persona by Genevieve Valentine, City of Savages by Lee Kelly, and The Darkside War by Zachary Brown!
  • Signed UK trade paperbacks of Marie Brennan’s Memoirs of Lady Trent, A Natural History of Dragons, The Tropic of Serpents, and Voyage of the Basilisk!
  • A stitched bookmark of the pattern and colors of your choice, handmade by Kate Nepveu!
  • Or’s contribution: one of three 14″x16″ prints of a Wheel of Time ebook cover image! These prints are not available for sale, so this is an excellent way to get a rare piece of art while helping a worthy cause!

You can bid on auctions here, or make a donation here. Finally, if you’d like the Carl Brandon Society’s support in attending a con, you can learn more here. Enjoy the auction!
