Genre for Japan:
A science fiction, fantasy and horror auction in aid of the Red Cross Japanese Tsunami Appeal.

In the wake of the devastating earthquake that struck Japan on March 11th, the world looked on in horror. We all saw the footage of the destruction caused by the initial earthquake and its aftershocks, and we were appalled by the sheer force of the tsunami it triggered–not to mention the threat posed by damage to Japan’s nuclear power stations, and the ongoing humanitarian crisis which has developed in the country.

We all felt so small and so far away – but were united in our desire to help.

Genre for Japan was set up by members of the speculative fiction community with one goal: to do what we can, however small.

From 28th March 2011, we will be auctioning special, rare and unique items donated by people who love genre just as much as you do: trust us – you don’t just want these things. You need them. You do. What are they? You’ll just have to wait and see…

All proceeds from the auctions will go to the Japan Tsunami Appeal run by the British Red Cross.

Item 18: signed Transworld collection

The highest bidder will receive a fantastic bundle of Transworld books, all signed by the authors.

We know they’re non-genre, but everyone needs a break sometimes – and we can’t think of any better way of spending one. Whether it’s for you, or the person in your life who just doesn’t *get* genre… bid away!

Minimum Bid: £40.00
