Story

In the wake of the devastating earthquake that struck Japan on March 11th, the world looked on in horror. We all saw the footage of the destruction caused by the initial earthquake and its aftershocks, and we were appalled by the sheer force of the tsunami it triggered–not to mention the threat posed by damage to Japan’s nuclear power stations, and the ongoing humanitarian crisis which has developed in the country.

We all felt so small and so far away – but were united in our desire to help.

Genre for Japan was set up by members of the speculative fiction community with one goal: to do what we can, however small.

From 28th March 2011, we will be auctioning special, rare and unique items donated by people who love genre just as much as you do: trust us – you don’t just want these things. You need them. You do.

Visit http://genreforjapan.wordpress.com to see the items you can bid on.

Thank you for your generosity.
