Subject: Auction to benefit Paul Haines - Australian horror writer

Copied from the Karl Edward Wagner group on YaHoo!:

In Australia, the fantasy and horror community are pulling together to help fellow author Paul Haines. Why? Well, after being diagnosed with bowel cancer, having sections of his bowel removed and enduring six months worth of chemotherapy, he has recently discovered he has spots on his liver. Paul has met this news by reloading his guns and is going to fight it with two other forms of chemotherapy for cancers like his, combined with a monoclonal antibody called Avastin.
Avastin, however is not part of Medicare or the private health system's funding at this stage. It costs $20,000 to do it. Money that he doesn't have.

So we're all helping out by donating and/or selling items from our collections to raise money. The response has been amazing so far. The reason why I am alerting the KEW e-group, is that one member has offered their copy of Bloodsongs issue 5 (Ellen Datlow, Karl Edward Wagner). Perhaps someone here would like to place a bidon it and help Paul at the same time?

While you are there, check the other itemsbeing made available

Cheers & God Bless
