It’s time once again for Con or Bust! The annual auction, administered by Kate Nepveu, raises funds to help people of color/non-white people attend SFF conventions. Con or Bust, Inc. 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. As always, they’re offering a wide range of fabulous prizes, including rare Wheel of Time art, publishing prize packs, signed first editions, and handmade gifts.
The auction closes at 4:00pm on Sunday, June 5th, so get your bids in soon!
There is lots of fabulous stuff to be had in this auction, including:
- Three (3) Tor.com Publishing Prize Packs, each of which includes books and galleys by Kai Ashante Wilson, Ellen Klages and Andy Duncan, Malka Older, Guy Haley, Melissa F. Olson, and Adrian Tchaikovsky, plus a Tor.com tote bag and Tor.com pint glass.
- As in previous years, Tor.com is donating three (3) individual 14″x 16″ prints of a Wheel of Time ebook cover image! (Winners choose which cover they’ll receive.) 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!
Other offerings include jewelry, novel and short story critiques, ARCs, collectables, first editions, and an amazing array of signed books from authors including Neil Gaiman, Marissa Meyer, Wesley Chu, Adam Christopher, Paolo Bacigalupi, Andy Weir, V.E. Schwab, Sarah Monette/Katharine Addison, Sofia Samatar, Neal Stephenson, Charlaine Harris, Terry Pratchett, Zen Cho, Kate Elliott, N.K. Jemisin, Ann Leckie, Lois McMaster Bujold, and so much more!
