Wow, we’re in the Top 10!

I was just alerted to this by some customers who came very much out of their way in their travels just to come to our store!

We are listed in the Top 10 Science Fiction Bookstores in the US by Buzzymag.

Wow! Well, if that’s not a reason to stop in here, I don’t know what is!

Well, Atlas Obscura has listed us as one of the top 45 Independent Bookstores in the WORLD.

Openings & Closings this week

This upcoming week I’m having work done at my house that requires me to be there, so, the following is our bookstore schedule for the week:

WEDNESDAY – OPEN starting at noon

Thursday and Friday may vary, with me opening in the afternoon – I won’t know till it happens.

My heartfelt apologies for the inconveniences. But a house generator was a long time coming, and I’m eager to get the project done before winter!

Closing early Thursday 10/6/22

Hi everyone! Sorry for the inconvenience, but we’re closing at 2:30pm on Thursday, October 6 for a much-anticipated dentist appointment (and you know how hard those are to get these days!).

We will be open from 10-2:30 tomorrow, and our usual hours on Friday and Saturday.

Looking forward to seeing you then!

Changes at Star Cat Books

First of all, Gabby is fine, but she won’t be in the store anymore. My assistant won’t be here from now on — my husband, Andrew Phillips, and I are back to running it ourselves. We not only wish him no harm, but also wish him the best in some endeavors only he can do for himself. He’s been a terrific assistant and a good friend.

I’ll still be posting online (Instagram, FB, Twitter: we’re “starcatbooks”) daily “star cats” of my own — Willow (1 year old as of 2 weeks ago) and Spike (14 years old this year) are still in fine fettle and very photogenic.

In the meantime, the news is SEPTEMBER IS BACK TO SCHOOL SAVINGS: 10% off all children’s books, both new and used. We take cash, check, debit/credit card (with a $10 minimum because of fees) — and of course we order books every two weeks (new books); inquire about a book you’re interested in!

Thank you for being patient while we shielded the store’s windows with our beautiful Swedish curtains — that summer sun was brutal. The curtains are coming down tonight, and you’ll be able to see us again!
