And one I almost hate to put up, but if knew or read Mike Resnick’s work, or knew him personally, he’s also passed away. However, due to all the medical bills and other issues including $0 income since his death…
Gang, this one is important–Mike Resnick was a giant of the SF community who spent his entire life mentoring other writers, patiently encouraging so very many who have gone on to great success. But more than that, he was a decent, funny, deeply kind and all-around great human being. You always came away from a conversation with Mike feeling lifted up, bostered, and ready to take on the challenges in front of you.
Since his passing, his wife Carol has been trying to deal with large medical bills and a complete loss of income. We all chipped in on the GoFundMe, and it helped quite a bit. Now, she’s setting up an auction for June 14-18 to continue that effort. This is the auction house that will be handling the items. She’s posting the link before Mike’s items go live, so people can register in advance (They’re not on the auction page yet). Please see her note below, and please, share it far and wide. She’s SF family, and she needs our help. (You can share the link from Mike’s page, too, but make sure you get her note included.)
“This is Carol Resnick. I’ve hired an online estate auction house to handle the sale of many of Mike’s treasures. The sale will be June14 through June18. the site is Everything But The House; their URL is www.ebth.com . Anyone can go on the site but you must register to bid; it’s easy to do- even I can do this.”
It’s truly sad that she is having to sell everything, but if you can afford it, buy something to help her out.
And I really, really hope I don’t have to do anything like these last two again anytime soon!
