Save the Books!

(from another e-list)

To All You Book-loving Atlanta Locals:

I just got a note from Sean Wallace, Publisher/Editor with Prime
Books/Wildside Press. It seems that SF/F publisher Meisha Merlin,
which declared it was shutting down in November, has a rather large
amount of stock (tens of thousands of books) in its Stone Mountain
warehouse (1440 Kelton Drive, Stone Mountain) that needs to be rescued
or it will all be destroyed/recycled.

Sean is renting a truck which can fit fifteen pallets, single-stacked,
or thirty double-stacked, but there’s no forklift available, only a
pallet jack. So he has to fill the truck by hand. He’ll be in town
Tuesday and Wednesday (4/22 and 4/23) to load up, and he’s asked me to
spread the word that he’s desperate for volunteers to help him. Anyone
who volunteers can cart off any books they want that don’t fit into
the truck.

If you can help out or know of folks who might be able to, email Sean
at: seanwallace at

All you people who do book arts! what a treasure trove!!!!! go get em!!!!!!!

(oh, and people who like to read too, haha)
