The winter holidays are fast approaching, and Annie’s Book Stop of Worcester, located at 65 James Street in Worcester, Massachusetts, has lots of holiday gift suggestions spanning the outer reaches of Time and Space, and the inner realms of horror and mystery!
* As we mentioned in yesterday’s blog entry, we’re hoping you’ll join us this weekend for our annual DOCTOR WHO celebration, where we’ll be running special sales on audio CDs and magazines in addition to our events.
* Speaking of events… VERY IMPORTANT REMINDER!!!!! Sign-ups for the DOCTOR WHO “New Who” Trivia and “Classic Who” Trivia contests on Saturday, December 13th close on WEDNESDAY, December 10th. Please RSVP on our Facebook event page ASAP, or contact us by phone or e-mail!!!!
* Books by local authors make marvelous gifts. Just a few of our speculative fiction favorites include: FINDER, a fantasy written by Terri-Lynne DeFino; MANNER OF THE SUNDOG, a thriller by Ted Cabana; AN EVER FIXED MARK, a magical realism work by Jessie Olson; DESERT BONES, the latest suspense novel by James C. MacIntosh; and mysteries STAGES OF GREY by Clea Simon and THE PRECIPICE by Penny Goetjen.
* We can’t leave horror out of our speculative fiction round-up. We recently hosted NEHW [New England Horror Writers] on Small Business Saturday, and we have a large selection of their titles here, ready for shivery gift-giving. We have anthologies, collections, and novels from Inanna Arthen, Roxanne and Karen Dent, John Grover, Bracken MacLeod, Rose Mambert, Errick Nunnally, Howard Odentz, Dale Phillips, David Price, Jennifer Allis Provost, Doug Rinaldi, Morgan Sylvia, Erin Thorne, KH Vaughan, Morven Westfield, and more!
* If you missed last weekend’s signing with Ryk E. Spoor, don’t despair! We still have signed copies of PARADIGMS LOST, GRAND CENTRAL ARENA, and SPHERES OF INFLUENCE. We’re very much looking forward to the spring release of his Oz title POLYCHROME, but you can while away the winter months with tales of Jason Wood, Ariane Stephanie Austin, Kyri Victoria Vantage, and other Spoor characters.
Give the gift of science fiction, fantasy, mystery and horror this holiday season!
