THIS AUCTION IS NOW CLOSED.
NEW AUCTION STARTING in <1 hour
IS NOW UP HERE!


It is sad to be clearing out Endicott West, which was an arts retreat for many years, as well as being the Arizona home to Terri Windling, where she created so much great work inspired by the Sonoran desert and its people. Terri's prodigious library here has given many people joy over the years, and I wish we could teleport it all to her little cottage in England - and build a new room to house it all in!  That being impossible, we're making sure it all goes to good homes (including the Special Collection at Northern Illinois U.) - and one of those homes could be yours!

To keep our spirits up - and to help support repairs on her home caused by the recent dramatic flooding in the UK - we are offering you the chance to bid on:

1) 25 Years of Books Edited by Terri
Including: Swan Sister; The Green Man; Ruby Slippers Golden Tears; Black Swan White Raven; Salon Fantastique; Sirens [all co-edited with Ellen Datlow]; The Essential Bordertown;  Faerie!;  Elsewhere Vol. 3 . . . and maybe a few surprises.  Each will be signed by Terri.
NOTE:
There will be *2* winners on this one: The last 2 high bids each get a box.

2) Surprise Box of Terri's Favorite Fiction
At least 9 hardcovers + as many paperbacks as we can fit in the box of books Terri really loves, and has probably talked about on her fabulous blog and/or the Journal of Mythic Arts' celebrated "100 Books of Mythic Fiction."  You won't be disappointed.  Authors may (but are not guaranteed) to include Alice Hoffman, N. Scott Momaday, Vikram Chandra, Katherine Vaz, and others whose work Terri brought to the fantasy reading public's attention through her 20 years of groundbreaking work on The Year's Best Fantasy & Horror.

NOTE (ETA):
There will be *2* winners on this one: The last 2 high bids each get a box.



3) Terri's personal collection of Dorothy Dunnett novels!
You've heard me speak of them often: the Lymond Chronicles (recently discussed in my Facebook thread here): here offered in the 1980s paperback edition, with Terri's eye tracks on each page, and her wails of anguish across our apartment still ringing in my ears . . . Plus the Niccolo series, in the fancy trade paper edition, which she swears is all worth it once you get to the last volume.

Still to come:
• A box of Biographies (about Authors & Artists)  • A box of Art Books!  • Poetry! • Native American Fiction
* A box of Pre-Raphaelite books with some special collectibles!!*
 * 2 Boxes of Fabric Scraps (suitable for Quilters) culled from Endicott West decor

Look for those later today!
