Ladies and Gentlemen, Pandemonium Books in Central Square, Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA is in trouble and could use your help. After its recent move from Harvard Square, the owner hoped things would pick up in the new, larger location. But he's had a series of debt collisions and desperately needs both money and some emotional support or the store is likely to go under.
Panedomonium is a niche bookstore specializing in science fiction and fantasy books and related paraphernalia. I am a big fan and, although I haven't made it to the new location, used to buy from them at the old space. I love having a specialty bookstore like this available and would hate to see YET ANOTHER locally owned bookstore go out of business.
He's asking that people pre-order t-shirts to both show support and guarantee him a chunk of revenue. And he's offering ridiculously cheap shipping. If you don't need more t-shirts or don't like their design, consider buying a shirt anyway and donating it to a homeless shelter or Good Will store. Otherwsie, perhaps you might buy a pile of books (or gaming supplies or magazines or used books or whatever) from the store. Many have suggested that he put up a PayPal donation page, but he has yet to do so.
Details of his plea are here:
