    Auction Talk 5

    Alright, let me open the race then for the comic and make a bid for "ELRIC: THE DREAMING CITY".
    Instead of your US$ 50.- I offer the same amount in Euros at today's rate: € 50 = $ 85 ( ... should the Euro drop until the end of the auction I will still pay at least these $ 85 - or more, depending on the final bid).

    Oh, and cheques from here are nonsense, either I can send the money by PAYPAL or to a European account of yours. I could alternatively send you a receipt of a bank here that proves I paid the amount to an account of MSF here. We'll find a solution.

    Looks like we haven't had a bid on the 1st edition hardback of Sailor on the Seas of Fate, so we'll be withdrawing it from the auction unless we hear otherwise. Meanwhile electronic transfers to MSF or WWW are welcome and if the winners could send me their addresses, I'll send the remaining books (and video) out. After this date, the regular auction will be in support of this site and the New Worlds Authors Fund.

      I'll bid US$100 for The Sailor on the Seas of Fate, if it is still on the block.

      Sorry for the late bid - was interested the first time it was up, but waited too long, so bid time expired. Thanks for listing it again.

        I don't have any cash to bid with at the moment, but I am interested in helping by putting an item up for auction. It is one of my most treasured books, but I think this cause is far greater than my love for a dusty old book.

        I will auction off my 1st edition Stormbringer (signed), HB, 1965 Herbert Jenkins Publisher, London. I don't have the dust jacket but it is in great condition (got it from Jayde Design).

        Not sure how to go about doing this, so maybe Berry can give me some guidance.
        When they had advanced together to meet on common
        ground, then there was the clash of shields, of spears
        and the fury of men cased in bronze; bossed shields met
        each other and the din rose loud. Then there were
        mingled the groaning and the crowing of men killed and
        killing, and the ground ran with blood.

          VW, we'll make arrangements with you with all due haste. You'll have details from me within the next day or so. Very busy ATM, but won't neglect this generous offer.
          The cat spread its wings and flew high into the air, hovering to keep pace with them as they moved cautiously toward the city. Then, as they climbed over the rubble of what had once been a gateway and began to make their way through piles of weed-grown masonry, the cat flew to the squat building with the yellow dome upon its roof. It flew twice around the dome and then came back to settle on Jhary's shoulder. - The King of the Swords

            Thanks Berry. I look forward to hearing from you

              That's incredibly generous, VW. I'll bid fifty quid. But I don't think you should be making that sort of sacrifice, so if there's something I can substitute for what you're offering I'd like to do that.

                Oh not much of a sacrifice compared to what some others in the world have lost. I would love to help, but if you think I should hold off on the offer, maybe I can make a donation to the charity and you can substitute some item.

                I want to help though. I do think my book could get a nice donation.

                  Unfortunately I can't bid on any of the books either, but I would like to help... so (if it isn't too much of a headache for Berry, and if anyone is interested) I'd like to offer my services as a cartoonist for auction.

                  If someone out there wants a custom piece of artwork, then I'd be happy to work something up for them... obviously the nature and form of the piece would depend on the bidder's needs (Website mascot? Band poster? Celebrity portrait?), but I can't go any bigger than A4 really, and whatever I do will be similar in style and quality to the work on my site.

                  Not sure how tempting that sounds, but the offer's there. :D

                    In case there is any confusion, I would still like to offer my book.

                    And thanks for your generous offer Michael, but I think that the feeling I get when I hold the book will be outwieghed by the good feelings I'll have by doing something charitable with it.

                    So Berry, could you contact me with any suggestions on how I should do this? - when you get the chance.

                        Thank you Mr M, that means a great deal to me... especially considering some of the astounding artists you have worked with over the years (and continue to work with, of course).

                        Berry and I are thrashing out the details of the "lot" as I type this, so... um... happy bidding everyone!

                          Well, I guess I'll hold on to it then and make a small donation when I can.

                            As a proud owner of a D. Crosier original, I can say with certaintly you won't be disappointed, MJR. I can soundly vouch for Dee's abilities and professionalism. At the risk of coming off sounding sappy, the piece I have -- a rendering of Elric, of course -- is one of my most cherished pieces of art.

                            Hmm, it seems you have a market in the states, Dee.
