BUMPING UP Offer: Copy of Steam-Powered: Lesbian Steampunk Stories + Artwork by Shweta Narayan

Hey guys! With only four days left to bid, shweta_narayan and I wanted to sweeten the deal on this offer: if the bidding reaches $150, Shweta will post the (freakin' AWESOME) poem written by her Jahanara in English, complete with pedantic Syrian scholar footnotes! If it doesn't reach $150, you'll only get the footnotes. :p

FURTHER... If you're very VERY keen and the bidding reaches $200, I will write my [presently unnamed] Syrian Ruler's poem in response to Jahanara's, and post it publically for free. I will write it out by hand, seal it with wax, and mail it to the auction winner as well.

The bidding is presently at $110. Have at it!
