Ok. Let's clear this one up before it gets any more out of hand---all those emails!
I DIDN'T EAT THE FISH'S HEAD!
.....but I did try a bite of the crunchy, crunchy tail.
I have neglected you guys way too long.
In other, more wholesome news:
My deepest thanks goes to Laura Burns, who won the special Anansi Boys Neil Gaiman Rat. Thanks too, to each and every one of you who placed bids. It was a great show of support. Neil, the CBLDF and I thank you.
I read a comment stating that the next such fundraiser would be nice as a raffle. I'm willing to try that, but know just enough about raffles to know they're more complicated than auctions. If I can get someone who knows what's up to help with the raffle nuts, bolts and general whats-its, I'm all for it. Anyone interested in helping should say so here, and I'll be in touch.
I'm preparing very soon to have another sale on the Luck's Dancer sculpture that most of you will remember from here: Neil Gaiman - Neil Gaiman's Journal: The Nook
I'll be releasing a numbered limited edition of Lucks Dancer finished exactly as the original on the kinetic sculpture. A portion of sales from these will go to CBLDF. $100 each Edition of 300, signed and numbered.
The rest will be open editions, each painted differently, as before. $50
There's your advance 'heads up' for the next sale (June 15)

But wait--- Good old refrigerator door! Here's one:
The real Han Solo shot first.
