Wheel of Time ebook cover art prints

Originally published at Con or Bust by Kate Nepveu. Please comment there ( comment(s)).

Item Name & Description: one of three 14″x16″ prints (image size 12″x12″) of a Wheel of Time ebook cover image, your choice, donated by Tor.com. These prints are not available for sale.

Except for A Memory of Light, these covers were originally commissioned for the ebooks of the series; some of them have since been used for the trade paperback reissues. Below, you can see some of the images and how they are laid out as a print (click to enlarge). You can see all the ebook-commissioned covers at Tor.com, and see how Michael Whelan’s cover is cropped for the ebook cover of AMoL at Macmillan.

Starting Bid: $15. Three prints available, top three bidders win.

Notes: will ship anywhere.

(And yes, I still have The Shadow Rising hanging in my living room, and it still looks awesome.)

About WorldCon memberships and Hugo voting

Originally published at Con or Bust by Kate Nepveu. Please comment there ( comment(s)).

In response to this year’s Hugo nominations [*], a few people have inquired on Twitter whether Con or Bust would consider funding supporting (that is, voting but not attending) memberships to WorldCons, or whether Sasqaun (this year’s WorldCon) might consider donating money from supporting memberships to Con or Bust. I am grateful for people’s confidence in Con or Bust, but must decline both suggestions, for the reasons I will put behind a “Read more” cut, so I don’t have to try and break it down to 140-character chunks.

Con or Bust remains committed to helping non-white fans/fans of color attend SFF cons, including Sasquan; here are ways to support that goal, including Con or Bust’s annual auction, which is accepting offers now. In addition, Con or Bust is still looking for a transferred attending membership to Sasquan; please email knepveu@steelypips.org if you have one available.

Edit: Supporting memberships are now being sponsored by many people and organizations; if this is a thing that interests you, Mary Robinette Kowal has details.
