About Our Auction
We created this online auction for those in the Tiptree community who aren’t attending the Tiptree Award auction at WisCon this May. We don’t want you to miss out on all the fun—and the opportunity to possess something beautiful, really cool, or wonderfully odd.
So we put together an auction of ten items, all with a connection to the Tiptree Award—from an amazing silk-screened print created by Freddie Baer to a votive candle featuring Saint Karen Fowler for those who agree with Karen’s contention that writing should be more exuberant than is strictly tasteful.
Check it out. Submit a bid. And as those of you who have attended the Tiptree Auction already know, extra karmic points for bidding prime numbers!
About James Tiptree Jr. Award
The James Tiptree Jr. Award is presented annually to a work of science fiction or fantasy that expands or explores our understanding of gender. Founded in 1991 by authors Pat Murphy and Karen Fowler, it is intended to reward and create a community for those writers and artists who are bold enough to imagine imagine futures that are very different from today. The Tiptree Award honors Alice Sheldon, who wrote under the pseudonym James Tiptree Jr. By her choice of a masculine pen name, Sheldon helped break down the imaginary barrier between “women’s writing” and “men’s writing.” To learn more about the Tiptree Award or to recommend works for the jury’s consideration, visit tiptree.org.
