Well, issue #2 has a new store carrying Bull Spec, Barnes & Noble’s Durham “New Hope Commons” location. (For all locations, click here!) It’s way back and the bottom in the newsstand, to the left of “The Paris Review” and to the right of “F&SF”. And I’m making another pitch to Greenville and Burlington this week. Wish me luck!
Well, issue #1 is in stock at Barnes & Noble location at the Streets of Southpoint in Durham; thanks very much to the management there giving it a chance and their support.
And a box is on its way to Forbidden Planet NYC — hopefully it will get there soon and folks will like it!
And for folks in the local area, I’ll be at the Bimbé Cultural Arts Festival in downtown Durham tomorrow (Saturday) from 12-9. Come by to chat, play chess, and bring snacks.
Well, it’s happened. Two stores whose management I cannot personally influence with a visit and an “offer they can’t refuse” have opened their doors to Bull Spec #1.
The first is Greenville, South Carolina’s Fiction Addiction. I found them on IndieBound and they were very up front about their support for authors and artists in the Carolinas, and though it’s much later than I’d hoped (the fault is all mine, trying too long to figure out ever-cheaper ways to send more than a copy at a time somewhere) issue #1 should be in stock at their Woodruff Road store if you head their way. To be safe, maybe wait until tomorrow? But why not go by today anyway and, worst case, check out something else if “BS” isn’t in stock.
The second is Indianapolis, Indiana’s Downtown Comics. I had the sibling inside scoop that their downtown location (they’re also in Castleton, Greenwood, and on West 10th Street just outside I-465) was a really nice place, and the oldest of my younger brothers (there needs to be shorthand for that) took a copy of BS #1 by the next time he was in for some comics and a chat. A phone call later I was sending a box their way. Thanks for supporting a small independent publisher, Downtown Comics! (And “Boiler Up!” Doug!)
