Only five days left in the KGB raffle. Five! If you aren’t already familiar with it, the hosts of the Fantastic Fiction at KGB reading series in New York City are holding a raffle to support the series. All proceeds from the raffle will help support the reading series, which has been a bright star in the speculative fiction community for more than a decade.
Raffle tickets cost one dollar US ($1) and can be purchased at www.kgbfantasticfiction.org. You may purchase as many tickets as you want between now and October 25th, 2010. Sales will close at midnight (Eastern Daylight Time) on October 25th, and shortly afterward, winners will be drawn randomly from a digital “hat” and announced on the web. Prizes will be mailed to the lucky winners by the donors. (See a more detailed explanation in Raffle Rules).
What sort of prizes?
I donated a signed carbon copy of a typewritten short story draft. Yes, a story on actual carbon paper typed on a burgundy and black duotone Royal with a sans serif typeface. “The Golden Child’s Glamour” is set in the Shades of Milk and Honey universe.
I also donated a short story critique.
Plus, there’s Neil Gaiman’s keyboard and things like…
- Signed galley of Catherynne Valente’s DEATHLESS & handmade necklace
- Signed copies of INSIDE STRAIGHT, BUSTED FLUSH, and SUICIDE KINGS by George R.R. Martin
- Your very own wormhole, with a certificate of authenticity by physicist Michio Kaku
