I learned today that local independent bookstore Pandemonium Books & Games, who specialize in Science Fiction & Fantasy, are having a lot of financial trouble. They used to be located in The Garage (sort of a small mall) here in Harvard Square but relocated to a larger space in Central square last year. I had hoped this would mean they would thrive. They’re a great store with wonderful booksellers. Owner Tyler Stewart was visited by the tax man and has launched a plea to help keep the store open. They planning on producing a new t-shirt each month. If 1000 people pre-order their new shirts, Pandemonium can pay their back taxes. I hope they make it, I really do.
