Genre for Japan Appeal

Following the recent devastating earthquake and tsunami in Japan, a group of SF bloggers and professionals have gotten together to raise funds to help in the relief effort.

Blogger Amanda Rutter (of Floor to Ceiling Books), author Louis Morgan, Solaris editor Jenni Hill, blogger Ro Smith and writer Alasdair Stuart have joined forces to create the 'Genre for Japan' appeal, auctioning limited collectibles, rare items and signed books to raise funds for British Red Cross efforts in Japan. Bidding for the items begins on Monday and The Guardian has coverage of the appeal here.
