Next Tuesday, Michelle Sagara‘s new book Cast In Honor will hit shelves. She’ll be in the store Monday, if you’d like a signed copy.

I mean, we plan to put her nose to the grindstone make her sign many, many copies for the store anyway, but if you’d like one personalized*, let us know and we’ll make it happen.

*If you’ve reserved a copy, you’re already covered.

Tanya Huff Is Coming To Town!

Wednesday, October 7th, 2015

On Saturday! Yes, this Saturday, October 10th, Tanya Huff will be here at the store to launch An Ancient Peace, the first book in her new ‘Peacekeeper’ series.

Join us at 3pm for a chance to talk to Tanya (which is never a chance to be missed), to pick up a copy of her new book, and generally fill up on enjoyment so as to make it through the Thanksgiving weekend with the extended family.

Can’t make the event but want a signed copy? Just let us know.

Two Great Authors: One Great Afternoon

It’s happening this weekend!

Please join us at the store on Sunday October 4th for an event with two Canadian YA authors. E.K. Johnston will be on hand to launch her new book A Thousand Nights, along with special guest Erin Bow, with her newest title The Scorpion Rules.

The event is free and open to everyone. We’ll put the cookies out at 2pm: we’d love for you to be here.

This is a friendly neighborhood reminder:  on Saturday October 3rd, author Kate Blair will be at the store to launch her new book Transferral. Join us here at 3pm to meet the author, get books signed, and imagine a world in which the rich can transfer their ailments to the  poor.


It’s Here.

Wednesday, September 2nd, 2015

Shepherd’s Crown, Terry Pratchett’s final book, has arrived.

I cried a little bit, opening the boxes. Not just because he’s gone, but because of everything he gave us before he went.


Tuesday, September 1st, 2015

This is hard to say. But here goes:

The new Terry Pratchett book is not, in fact, available today.

It just arrived in the warehouse, and will be shipped out to stores later this week. We should have it by early next. But hey, originally the book wasn’t due in stores until September 30th. So we’re all still ahead of the game.

Robert Charles Wilson

Thursday, April 23rd, 2015

This Saturday, April 25th, we’re truly pleased to be launching The Affinities, the newest book by Robert Charles Wilson.

We’d love to have you join us here at the store at 3pm. Come for the cookies; stay for the conversation!
