Here’s some news passed on to us today from Mark Chitty (‘Chitman13’ in the Forum Discussion Area).
Over to Mark:
‘I got an email from Peter Hamilton yesterday letting me know that he’s taking part in a charity auction for Autistica, an Autism charity.
It’s taking place on Ebay UK from 11th November and the prize is for the winner to get their name as a character in his next book, Great North Road.’

Note: There are other authors there too. Though most are not genre related, Darren Shan is there too.
