King donates book to dinner dance auction

A SIGNED first edition of Just After Sunset personally donated by Stephen King tops the list of items donated to next month’s Halloween Fundraiser Dinner Dance auction in Melbourne.

The rare collector item is among several collectable books and items up for auction including personally signed editions of Stephen King, a literary companion and Horrors: great tales of fear and their creators by Rocky Wood, artwork by Greg Chapman and a sterling silver opal pennant.

The dinner dance is hosted by the AHWA and Australian-American Association.

It will raise money for the purchase of an Eye Gaze Device for Rocky Wood, a Melbourne horror author and past president of the HWA who has been diagnosed with an incurable motor neurone disease.

Tickets for the event at City of Melbourne Bowls, Flagstaff Gardens on Saturday, October 29 are $55 and include a buffet dinner and entertainment.
