- Tyler Stewart, owner of Pandemonium Books in Central Square, has managed to stave off the IRS with his t-shirt sales. According to this article in the Globe, they’re still in debt, but not crippled quite yet. You can visit their Livejournal to keep on top of what they’re doing. I for one plan on popping by and picking up some much needed sci-fi—any recommendations?
- Speaking of social networking, Pocahantas of Jamestown (which I mentioned yesterday as my favorite book read so far this year) has her own MySpace page. Who doesn’t have one? Am I going to have to break down and create one?
- Look who has a review of William Vollman’s latest book Poor People in the LA Times! Also, he’s redesigned his site—very spiffy! (I believe Mr. Bookdwarf took the photo now is brandished on the blog.)
- Five Chapters is serializing a new piece of fiction from Danielle Trussoni, whose Falling Through the Earth was one of the New York Times’ top 10 books of last year.
I’m not a big fan of sci-fi, but you might try Stanislaw Lem.
