To honor the memory of Star Wars author Aaron Allston, who passed away last month reportedly due to a massive heart failure, our friends at Far, Far Away Radio are hosting a charity auction to benefit the American Heart Association. The prize is a signed first-edition copy of Fate of the Jedi: Backlash, which Allston wrote after undergoing emergency quadruple bypass heart surgery in 2009.
"Let us use Star Wars to celebrate Aaron's life and to help others who are facing trials similar to his own," writes FAR co-founder Austin Blankenship. "This is an opportunity to further Mr. Allston's legacy of kindness by reaching out to the countless people who need help getting through their personal hard times. We can make the world a better place, much like Aaron Allston did through his endearing personality and wonderful stories."
Click here to place your bid for the signed copy of Backlash, and bid knowing that 100% of your money is going to support a worthy cause. The auction closes at 4:56:33 p.m. ET on March 21, 2014.
