Re-Unite Bradbury's Hugo Award with his Manuscripts!
Ray's Retro-Hugo is currently up for auction, along with more than 400 other artefacts offered by the Bradbury estate. The starting bid was $5000. Unfortunately, this is beyond what the Center for Ray Bradbury Studies, which holds (in original or digitised form) many manuscripts related to Fahrenheit 451, could afford to spend. So I would like to make a simple proposition to put the Hugo back with the manuscripts:
Is there someone out there who could bid for the Retro-Hugo, and donate it to the Center for Ray Bradbury Studies at Indiana University?
If this idea appeals to you, please visit the web site of Nate D. Sanders Auctions of Los Angeles (link below); or email email@example.com; or phone 310 440-2982. The auction instructions and registration pages of the website explain the online, phone, and mail bidding process.
The bidding period runs until 5:00 p.m. PDT on Thursday, September 25th, 2014. The Bradbury Hugo Award is lot number 293 in the Bradbury online auction catalog. Here's a direct link:
