  • Lightning really does strike twice - dammit

    Some of you may remember a while back when Jeanne Robinson (wife of Spider Robinson and co-author of the "Stardance" trilogy) was fighting biliary cancer, I did some auctions to help them out with expenses not covered by the Canadian health system. Many of you both lurkers and posters sent me things to auction and the support was absolutely amazing.

    I'm sorry to report now that Spider and Jeanne's only daughter, Terri-Luanna is fighting Stage IV metastatic breast cancer. More information can be found at Spider's website:

    or at Terri's own amazing blog:

    (Graceful Woman Warrior is the meaning of Terri's birth name, Luanna)

    I'm going to be doing some auctions again soon. And once again, I'm asking that if any of you have items that you can send to be auctioned, please get in touch with me via PM. Even if you're not able to send anything, once I get the auctions going, if you can help spread the word via your own posts, blogs and websites, it'd be a huge help also. And of course, sending any goodthoughts or prayers Terri's way can't hurt and may very well help.

    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. Thanks.
