Goodbye & Gods Bless

April 7th, 2017

Lorna Toolis, the Head of the Merril Collection (the largest public library collection of SFF on the continent) retires today.

When a customer would say, “I’m looking for a book I read when I was a kid: it was blue and they could breathe underwater…”, we called Lorna.

When someone asked for more “…by that author who wrote the story in that anthology, can’t remember what it was called but it had a quilt on the cover? From the 90s, I think?”, we called Lorna.

And she could always, always, help.

Smart, funny, kind, possessing both a bottomless resevoir of encyclopedic genre knowledge and the adamantine spine required of librarians working in downtown Toronto, Lorna has been our friend (and savior) for decades.

We’re so happy for her, and wish her all the best in her new adventures.

All Signed And Shiny

Nick Cutter

Cory Doctorow (who’ll be back here April 30th to launch WALKAWAY!)

Kevin Hearne

Lesley Livingston

Michelle Sagara

Brett Savory

Samantha Shannon

Drew Hayden Taylor

That Didn’t Last Long

March 6th, 2017

After the cascading series of errors last week, Bell managed to get our phone up and running for the weekend. But not, apparently, today. We’re down again, and it looks like this might take some time.

 

Phone’s Out

March 1st, 2017
Our phone is currently down. If you need to get in touch with us today try here, Twitter, or email.

Sorry about that. Bell installed a line for one of our tenants early this week, and knocked out someone else’s line to do so. Then while fixing that line, they knocked out ours.

We’re talking an almost sitcom-worthy display of genius, here.
