Nature of the Beast

Published by under News

Our art section is changing! Our art section is changing! Well, maybe it’s not that exciting, but in the next couple of days it’s going to transform from an unruly primitive monster to a modernist work of logic. Well, maybe. I haven’t worked out all the details yet, and most the books are lying on […]

A Tree Grows in St. Louis

After buying all your holiday goods at Subterranean (hint! hint!), you may be left wondering what you can give this year that will also benefit the community (not that giving books doesn’t!). Of course, there are a lot of great projects, but here are two of my favorites. The first is the “Tree-Membrance” program in […]

Published by under News

So you’re sitting at home with nothing to do. How about making paper snowflakes for us? We’re putting together our new window display soon, and we could use all the little paper art you can throw at us. Subby will always appreciate it! Big, small, medium…we don’t care. What a way to make yourself part […]

Thanks, Stadium Pal!

Apart from there being a Essayist Laureate, nothing could make me happier than to see an essayist reading his essay (I would like to say “essay” once more) on a late-night talk show.

The leaves are falling off of the tree in front of the store in these wonderful layers of orange and yellow and red. Freakishly warm, yes, but lovely all the same. Also, they started ripping out the shelves and ceiling […]
