SpecFaction NSW is running the Aurealis Awards for the first time in Sydney next year. And thanks to the generosity of some incredible (and generous!) Australian authors, they’ve got some fab auctions up on Ebay at the moment to raise funds for this event. The pitch for this fundraiser goes a little something like this:
Where else can you buy an original print from Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld or a bundle of autographed fantasy, science fiction or horror novels from a huge list of Aussie authors including; Sara Douglass, Ian Irvine, Sean Williams and Shane Dix, Traci Harding, Karen Miller, Stephen Irwin, Nathan Burrage, Richard Harland, Marianne De Pierres, Angela Slatter, Kate Forsyth, Isabel Merlin, Sophie Masson, Jack Dann, Kaaron Warren, Shane Jiraiya Cummings and Kirstyn McDermott?
