We’ve just returned from The Northeastern Writers’ Conference, an annual event known colloquially as Camp Necon and held at Roger Williams University. Featuring familiar names and rising stars in the genres of horror, weird fiction, and dark fantasy, it’s one of our favourite events of the year. We sold many books at our tables and brought home many books with which to restock our shelves and broaden our selection of titles here at our little bookstore that’s bigger on the inside.
July may be almost over, but we have lots to look forward in the weeks to come.
From now until Labor Day Weekend, our hours are: MONDAYS & TUESDAYS 10AM-9PM; WEDNESDAYS & THURSDAYS 10AM-8PM; FRIDAYS & SATURDAYS 10AM-9PM; SUNDAYS 10AM-7PM.
