On Friday, November 27, TAFF candidates Anne K.G. Murphy, Brian Gray, and Frank Wu will be hosting an auction to raise funds for TAFF on Ebay. The auction will include Tuckerizations from Cory Doctorow, Charlie Stross, David Brin, Elizabeth Bear, Nalo Hopkinson, Julie Czerneda, and Mary Robinette Kowal. Other items include first editions of George Orwell’s 1984 and John Hersey’s Hiroshima. A Tuckerization is the inclusion of an individuals name in a work of fiction, named for Wilson Tucker who used to include his friends in his novels. TAFF is the Trans Atlantic Fan Fun, which, each year, sends a fan from North America to Europe, or vice versa, to foster fannish relations.
