Of Ghoulies and Auctions . . .


From Ghoulies and Ghosties, Long-Leggitie Beasties . . . 
(Part 31)

“Humanity has always had a symbiotic relationship with its monsters. 

(Continued tomorrow.)

And my commentary . . .

True words.  Bradbury built a career on them.

You can read all of the story to date here.

And a reminder . . . 

There's a purpose behind this serialization.  When it's done, the original typescript, framed and signed, will go up on auction on Ebay.  All proceeds will go to Clarion West, to help train and raise up a new generaation of science fiction, fantasy, and horror writers, to take up the holy cause when I and my compeers are gone.

You have to be mad to want to be a writer.  Easing the financial sufferings of the insane is a worthy cause.

I have no idea how much money this will bring.  It could bring a great deal.  It could go for a pittance.  You can help the cause by bidding (if this is the sort of thing you'd like to have hanging on your wall) or by bringing the existence of the story to any collectors you may know.

That's all.  Thanks.

Above:  Another pumpkin, waiting to be carved.  I love this season.
