Shocklines, which for more than half a decade reigned as one of the best online bookstores for small press and hard-to-get horror publications, is closing shop, though owner Matt Schwartz says the brand will continue with the discussion board and some kind of industry newsletter. I'm sorry to see the store go. Aside from being a convenient place to order books, I had a holiday-time tradition with quite a few friends of swapping Shocklines gift certificates.|
We've still got Bloodletting, Overlook Connection and Bad Moon as online specialty retailers, as well as some others I'm sure I'm forgetting, but I gotta tell ya, now would be a really, really good time for Clarkesworld Books to reopen. I'm just saying.
