Offer: The GameWorld Trilogy by Samit Basu (Autographed)

Item Name & Description: A set of brand new, autographed paperback copies of The GameWorld Trilogy, (3 books - The Simoqin Prophecies, The Manticore’s Secret and The Unwaba Revelations) by Samit Basu. The books have been signed by the author, with thanks for supporting Con or Bust.
This series is one of the first Indian English books to be categorised as SFF; and since it has not been published in the UK, the US or Australia, might not be easily accessible outside of the Indian subcontinent.
If the bidding goes above $99 (and the bidder so desires) I will read the series and insert my reactions to it as a series of post-it notes tucked away at intervals between the pages.

Starting Bid: $30

Notes: Since these books are currently in India, it might take up to two weeks to reach you via international registered post. (Shipping costs as well as the original costs of the books have been met by some kind donors who are not me.)

Bidding starts Saturday, February 11, 2012 at 12:01 a.m. EST (GMT -5) and ends Sunday, February 25, 2012 at 11:59 p.m. EST.

Offer: Blog Post by Deepa D.

Item Name & Description: I am offering a blog post that the winner can suggest the theme or subject for. This could be a commentary about a book or vid or movie, a meditation about a concept or term in anti-oppression theories, a rec list, or something else you might want me to blather about.
I will try to make it at least 1,000 words long, and will work with you to make sure it's something I can write about, and something you want to read about.

Depending on what the topic is, it might take me a while to write the post; but I will have it up within 3 months of the auction closing. You can go through my tags and read my previous posts over on my blog [personal profile] deepad.

Starting Bid: $5

Notes: Note: If the bidding goes over $50, then I will write a post for all the people who have bid over that amount in incremental bids of at least $5 above the previous one.
