Update on the HP Alliance podathon

It starts in about half an hour--hell, it'll probably be in progress by the time I finish writing this entry--so I thought I'd update you on some of the prizes that have been donated, because some of them aren't listed yet. (ETA: Official prize list.) FOR REAL, I AM SO INCREDIBLY NOT KIDDING:

ONE FULL SET OF U.K. HARRY POTTER BOOKS SIGNED BY J.K. ROWLING plus HANDWRITTEN CARD
donated by J.K. Rowling

Signed copy of HARLEQUIN VALENTINE by Neil Gaiman
donated by Neil Gaiman

Five lots of one signed and DEDICATED copy of UNSEEN ACADEMICALS by Sir Terry Pratchett (VERY RARE!)
donated by Sir Terry Pratchett

Sir Terry Pratchett's WINTERSMITH, signed by the author on the title page (1st ed)
donated by Colin Smythe

Signed TIGERHEART by Peter David
donated by Peter David

Signed graphic novel SIR APROPOS OF NOTHING comic series
donated by Peter David

Signed poster from THE GUILD, featuring cast in "Do You Want to Date My Avatar" outfits: Full cast!
donated by Knights of the Guild Podcast

(3) NEVER BEFORE SEEN production art from the film "Where the Wild Things Are"
donated by Elemental LLC

TRUE BLOOD Swag Bags
donated by True-Blood.net, Mel & Liz

Replica Slimer from Ghostbusters, limited edition, signed by original effects artist

Replica LightSaber based on Luke's from Return of the Jedi (retails at $250)

AND SO MUCH MORE. Personally, I covet the Elder Wand replica from Alivan's, but I don't think I'm eligible. It's not listed yet, but Diane Duane is also pledging a signed A Wizard of Mars ARC. And late breaking, from foresthouse: "8.5" X 11" Sirius Black/Gary Oldman mugshot/prison color sketch on black canson paper by John K. Snyder III." AWESOME.

ETA: YOU GUYS. I JUST NOTICED THAT LUSH DONATED A CRAP TON OF STUFF.

And, as mentioned--on a much lower level, I pledged a signed Movies in Fifteen Minutes paperback (I'm out of hardcovers).

In my head, I hear Headset Vince from the ShamWow commercials bellowing all of these out, by the way.

Oh, and now that Livejournal's back up from its incredibly well-timed scheduled maintenance, you can see the Hope for Haiti telethon liveblog I did last night; the first entry's here, and you can just hit "Next entry" until you get... well, back to this entry.

By the way, I have now been informed that help_haiti here on LJ will have raised $115,000 by the time all the pledges shake out.

ETA: The podathon has brought in $9100 as of this writing, about an hour in.
