Disappointing news on the home front. According to Locus, Dreamhaven Books is closing its doors at the end of January. Here is a copy of the e-mail sent out with the catalog.
I only shopped Dreamhaven perhaps once a year. I like the store, it was just never part of my regular rotation. That's probably part of the problem and why the store is closing. I always took for granted that the Twin Cities had two outstanding genre bookshops. I saw Paolo Bacigalupi read from Pump Six there and bought the book on the spot. It's a good store. I don't really want to say "was", but that's about to happen in just a few months.
I wish Greg Ketter the best and hope that whatever his plans are for the future, that they are a smash hit.
