Spooked by current literacy rates in America, the Horror Writer's Association is hosting an online auction on eBay.
Some of the items up for bid on the virtual auction block are a rare softcover advance copy of Thomas Harris' THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS
and the first U.S. hardcover edition of Clive Barker's THE DAMNATION GAME
Horror icon Stephen King will also be represented, as there will be limited edition prints available for purchase based on scenes from CARRIE
and THE SHINING
A custom poem by 2001 Bram Stoker award winner Linda Addison (ANIMATED OBJECTS
) is also up for grabs and novelist Gerard Houarner (ROAD TO HELL
) and illustrator GAK will write and illustrate an original "Dead Cat" story for one lucky bidder.
The auction runs on eBay through October 2.Questions? Comments? Let us know what you think at firstname.lastname@example.org.
