It is a chilly and sunny Saturday in The Loop. Lots of people are coming in from the Ice Carnival who have never been in our store before. It’s always exciting to see the magical look on someone’s face when they realize they have a real, honest to goodness local bookstore that they can shop […]

Here’s What You Missed….

AND I have some super freaky stills from the slide show.  The WHIRLING GYPSY is some sort of creative genius invention.  And I am completely sucked into the story line.  Tim’s full explanation of The Magic Dwindler’s absence here. Untitled from Timothy Lane on Vimeo.

The Lyndas are Here

  We are so lucky.  So so lucky.  She went into the publisher’s office and signed these just for us.  Seriously. If you want one holler (phone, email, buy online–but you MUST put “signed” in the comments if you buy online–unless you’re Jim and you put “Hi Kelly” which also works). They each have a […]

Tip-off curtesy of Shelf Awareness to the 10 Essential Books From the Last 25 Years.  The Guardian recently ran an article in which Rick Gekoski remarked on the disappearance of essential cultural books. He argued that a few decades ago, “there was a canon, […]

Brothers From Another Mother

Published by under Subby Love,Subculture

    In many ways the last 10 years of Soft Skull Press have mirrored the 10 years of Subterranean (except the major cash infusion they got a couple of years ago–we could use that).  And the closing of their NY offices and dismissal of the NY staff saddens and frightens me.  This article lays out […]

Speaking of Noir

Do you know what geniuses Scott Phillips and Jed Ayres are?  Seriously.   We’ve done, um, 7(?)  Noir@Bar.  8?  And they always bring in someone who isn’t yet published who just blows the crowd away.  In kind of a jaw-dropping what-the-hell-was-that I-don’t-know-but-I-liked-it sort of way. Frank Bill is one of those folks who, shortly after his Noir… appearance, […]
