Autistica, a charity funding research into the causes and treatment of autism, is holding a character auction to raise money.
A number of authors have agreed to allow the highest bidder to name a character in their next book. The full list of authors involved can be found here, but I’m especially excited to see David Mitchell’s name on the list. Other authors who may interest you include Ken Follett, Hari Kunzru and Maggie Gee. The auctions end this Sunday so you still have a few days left to bid.
