Two new homes for Bull Spec! Also, flyers! Also, a brief aside on selling out.

I’m very happy indeed that there are two more places in the Triangle where folks can get their hands on a copy of Bull Spec #2: The Durham County Library’s Southwest Regional Branch on Shannon Road, and Duke University’s Gothic Bookshop.

I want to talk about the library first, not only because it was there first chronologically but because, well, it’s very awesome for me on a personal level to know that somebody can walk into the library and discover worlds, as I did all through my youth at my “home” public library in Marion, Indiana. The magazine was already at the Durham main branch’s North Carolina Collection but the hours there are a little more limited, and it is primarily used as an archival and research room. Now, folks can come in, flip through without tweezers, etc. And I love this. I absolutely love it.

Secondly, I’d been trying to figure out a way to approach Gothic Bookshop for a while. It’s in the heart of Duke campus, so it’s not a place I generally pass by on the way to or from anywhere, I’m not a regular customer there, and it’s been a good long while since I had a serious connection with Duke. But, from the world of random events, I saw that they were looking for somebody to hand out flyers at NASFIC for the upcoming William Gibson book tour, and, hey, I was driving to NASFIC from not too far from campus… so I ended up with a stack of bright yellow flyers and finally that random connection to the store; now it’s in stock, so, “Let’s Go Duke!” and head to Gothic, eh?

Thirdly, flyers. While versions will come and go, here are some flyer links:

OK. Lastly, selling out. Of issue #1, that is. All I have left which aren’t spoken for (I do have a Northeast Raleigh local delivery loop to make, very sorry for the delay out there, folks) is a very short stack of bookstore returns with bookstore stickers on them. So when I get a chance (ha!) I’ll be removing the ability to order print copies of issue #1 or start subscriptions with issue #1. Lesson learned? Get issue #2 while it lasts… UPDATE: another box of issue #1 has arrived! It is in stock in a few local stores and, of course, online.

PS: All the local folks who were very disappointed indeed that copies of Raleigh native (alas, now Portland’s own) Mary Robinette Kowal‘s Shades of Milk and Honey could not be found? Yeah. I think there’s a pretty good chance that The Regulator and Gothic might have some copies soon. Just saying.
