The Mount cover - click to view full sizeThe Tiptree Award is going to have an auction that starts August 24 but you can preview it here. Included in the auction is a very rare item, a copy of The Mount signed by the late author, Carol Emshwiller. (Is it rare? I searched on Bookfinder for a signed copy, any edition, and none came up.)

The Mount was a Nebula Award finalist, won the Philip K. Dick Award Winner, and was selected as a Best Book of the Year by Locus, Book Magazine, and the Village Voice. More recently MaryKate Jasper and Charlie Jane Anders included it in an io9 list 10 Ultra-Weird Science Fiction Novels that Became Required Reading.

It is a weird and fabulous novel. It’s rare to find one signed and the money goes to an excellent cause. Good luck with your bidding!
