Offer: Handwritten Poetry Manuscript, Patricia McKillip

Seller: Patricia McKillip

Offered: The handwritten manuscript of Patricia McKillip's "Cruel Sister" from the Welcome To Bordertown anthology.

Patricia says:  I would like to offer the handwritten version of my poem "Cruel Sister", which is published in the shared-world anthology Welcome To Bordertown, edited by Holly Black and Ellen Kushner.

"Cruel Sister" is based on a very old ballad of the same name.  My donation includes a fairly clean (only a few cross-outs) handwritten final version, a rough draft that looks like a train wreck, with words, lines and entire verses crossed out and many margin notes, and a final, printed version.  The handwritten final version is dated 2/10/10, also signed and dated 11/27/11.  The handwritten pages are black ink gel pen on college-ruled binder paper, my draft paper of choice; the printed version is on computer paper.

I will also include a signed copy of The Bards of Bone Plain which has other poems in it written by me.

Opening bid: $75

Auction ends at 5 p.m. Pacific Time, December 15th 2011
