Signal Boost: Star Cat Books

Some of you know my friends Nancy and Elric. (AKA Baroness Branwen, who among other things did the Mass for Jane's Pelican vigil, and Baron Elric of Erewhon, sometime Baron Bhakail and one of the SCA's all-time great voice heralds.) They are trying to set up an independent bookshop in Vermont, and are running an Indiegogo campaign to help finance it.

This is a fine cause, and one that a lot of folks should consider supporting. They've been in the book business, mainly on the editorial side (particularly in science fiction) for many years, and know their way around. Now, they're trying to create the sort of friendly local bookstore that can survive in the rapidly-changing business -- something that's more than simply a warehouse with a cash register.

If you're in the Dartmouth region, this is likely to be a great place to have around. Even though I'm not, I think it's worth tossing a few dollars in the kitty (as it were) to help out a good business. Give it a look, and spread the word...
