So, there's fourteen hours and thirty-seven minutes remaining on the Wrong Things auction. And I'll say straight out, if this one goes for the starting bid, someone's going to get a bargain. To reiterate: Spooky has added a PC ("presentation copy") of the lettered, leatherbound edition of mine and Poppy's collaborative short-fiction collection, Wrong Things (Subterranean Press, 2001). The book sold out quite a while ago. This copy comes in a sturdy traycase, signed by both Poppy and me (and I'll personalize it if the winner so desires). It includes my story "Onion," Poppy's "The Crystal Empire," and our collaboration, "The Rest of the Wrong Thing," along with an afterword I wrote and full page B&W illustrations and endsheets by Richard Kirk. Plus, I've decided to offer Monster Doodle Sculpture #2 with this auction, so you'll not only get the book, you'll get one-of-a-kind, squirming, three-dimensional terror from beyond the stars, to boot! Click here to bid or buy it now. Though long out of print, we're beginning this auction at the original cover price for the lettered edition. Plus, we'll even throw in free shipping on this auction. The platypus is feeling generous.
Good news from my agent, Merrilee, today. She's read the first seven chapters of Daughter of Hounds and loves it. She's calling early tomorrow afternoon, and we'll swap questions. But it was a huge relief, her enthusiasm regarding this particular book.
