We have a fundraiser going

We have a fundraiser going on Facebook, as well as the ability to donate here (note the DONATE button on the right side of our front page — there is also a text link if the button doesn’t work in your browser).

The Facebook fundraiser is at this link — we appreciate anything you can contribute to keep us running in this economic clime, plus the current small business climate in our small town (several stores empty now) and a slow summer and fall. We are doing really well so far this holiday season, and that along with the fundraiser should put us into winter pretty well.

We *will* be holding our usual winter auction of signed books to get us through the bleak Vermont season, but this year we’re doing it with a twist: instead of just Neil Gaiman books, we’ll be bringing you signed books from famous authors of all different genres. A little bit for EVERYONE! Watch this space for announcements as we get closer to running the auction.

Dean Whitlock reading and Q&A

Meet DEAN WHITLOCK at STAR CAT BOOKS in BRADFORD, VT, on Saturday, Nov 17 3-5pm for his reading from FIREBOY, his latest book in the Carver Series.


All three volumes of the Carver’s World Series are now back in print in trade paperback format, including Fireboy, which was originally released only in ebook format.

Dean Whitlock gives us a unique world of his own creation—a true world, deeply perceived and fully realized. Magic runs throughout the adventure, along with suspense, terror, and poignancy . . . we can only wish for other journeys to come.
      —Lloyd Alexander, author of The Black Cauldron, the Prydain Chronicles, and many more fantasy adventures

A nice blend of introspection and action.
     —Kirkus Reviews
