Magick for Terri

Fans and friends of Terri Windling, whose list of accomplishments is extraordinary and whose influence on fantasy and interstitial fiction is incalculable, have come together for a good cause:

Terri Windling and her family have been coping with health and legal issues that have drained her financial resources at a critical time. Due to the serious nature of these issues, and privacy concerns for individual family members, we can’t be more specific than that, but Terri is in need of our support. As a friend, a colleague and an inspiration, Terri has touched many, many lives over the years. She has been supremely generous in donating her own work and art to support friends and colleagues in crisis. Now, Terri is in need of some serious help from her community. Who better than her colleagues and fans to rise up to make some magick for her?

Magick 4 Terri will auction off books, art, editorial critique, jewelry, and other items and services donated by Terri’s friends and fans. Since her friends and fans include big names like Ellen Kushner, Charles Vess, Jane Yolen, Delia Sherman, Catherynne M. Valente, Ellen Datlow, and Cory Doctorow, this is an excellent opportunity to acquire rare and signed books and artwork, and fan-on-the-street donations are also very welcome. Information on how the auction works is here.

The organizers are also using @Magick4Terri and #Magick4Terri to spread the word on Twitter. The auction opens today and closes December 15.
