This evening was the farewell party at Dreamhaven Books, a local fantasy/science fiction/comic store that has been in business for 35 years. It's not disappearing entirely: the owner, Greg Ketter, will continue to sell via mail and will attend conventions; he'll also open the store occasionally, though it will no longer have regular hours. Lots of folks, food, music. A nice sendoff, in other words, but it's so sad to see yet another bookstore essentially put out of business by online sellers. I discovered so many books and writers there, thanks to the wonderful staff, and heard a quite a few authors read there as well. It will be missed.
