Psychic Readers' Corner, and An Invitation

Book buyers frequently come in, embarrassed because they cannot remember the author or the title of the book they are seeking.  Speaking only for myself, I love these situations -- it is like an updated version of the old game show "What's My Line?"  And when you can guess correctly. . .oh, the job satisfaction!  The following are just a few actual examples of the hundreds of successful Psychic Bookseller Moments that have occurred at Borderlands Books, where our book sellers correctly guessed the title in one try, using only the vaguest of clues:

Q: "I'm looking for this book that is about a river."
A: To Your Scattered Bodies Go by Philip Jose Farmer.

Q: "This author sort of writes about religion."
A: James Morrow

Q: "I'm looking for a book about bridges in Wisconsin."
A: "You must mean 'The Bridges of Madison County'."

Q: "It's a fantasy series with an Asian feel, but not exactly, by two authors."
A: The Empire series, by Raymond Feist and Janny Wurts.

The list goes on and on.

A long time ago, when I worked in a metaphysical bookstore, a customer came to me seeking a book on Buddhism called "Born Into Bed".  The customer had been to several different bookstores, had no luck at all and was at wit's end.  I was able to find the book right away. . . it was actually called "Born In Tibet"!

So the invitation I spoke of is this: send us your fragments of memory, your descriptions of half-recalled book covers, and your breathless "I know there was an important character named Dan Davis, but I can't remember anything else!" queries.  (Extra points if you remember the book from that example!)  We'll call on our collective 25+ years of book selling experience to give you the author and title of the book you're seeking.  If we're stumped, we'll turn your question over to this mailing list (in an anonymous fashion), and see if our Psychic Readers (i.e. customers) can help!  (And don't worry, we'll never give out your personal information without permission.)

From The Office

The ability to sell books on-line is pretty important for book stores, especially specialty stores like Borderlands.  Not only does it bring in extra money but it also lets people know that we exist and it allows us to buy more obscure books because we have access to a worldwide market, not just our (very well loved, believe me) local customers.  For a small business there are really only two options for selling on-line: we can either spend a great deal of time and money to set up a full e-commerce section at our web site or we can use one of the on-line book listing services.  Almost since the day we opened, we've been going with the second of these choices.  In that time we've only used one company, not only because I feel a great deal of loyalty to companies that give us good service but also for years there has been a hands-down winner in terms of selection, service, and reliability.

For years we've been listing our books on-line at a site called  In fact, we've been listing there so long we still call it by the original name - The Advanced Book Exchange - in unguarded moments.  For a very long time, ABE gave us wonderful service at a fair price.  Their sellers were probably the finest in the used book field and we used to recommend the site to all our customers.

However, in 2002 or thereabouts, things started changing.  The company was sold, or went public, or some damn thing, and all of a sudden ABE started trying to make more money.  In itself, I think that's a great goal.  It's what we do here at the store.  The problem is that the way they went at it was to start soaking their sellers (us) and their buyers (you) for more money instead of trying to grow their business.  Granted, there were a few attempts to start an advertising campaign in the beginning, but it was a pretty weak attempt (how many of you have ever seen an ad for ABE?).

Service also began to suffer and costs went up and up and up.  More distressingly, there has been a systematic attempt on the part of ABE to obscure our identity as a business behind layers of mandatory rules, complex web site structures, and inflexible policies.  It seems that the goal of ABE is a system whereby booksellers are little more than share-croppers for ABE while the buyers see only the face that ABE wishes them to perceive.

At the beginning of this month, the final straw has been put into place.  Without going into tedious detail, suffice it to say that ABE will be charging us an additional commission for a non-service and they will be taking control of a substantial part of our post-sale customer relations.  And we're not going to put up with it.

As of Monday, April 3rd, for the first time in almost seven years, our books will no longer be listed at  We are moving to a new service called ( ).  There are a number of features at their site that are vastly superior to ABE from a buyer's standpoint, and they are a much better business to work with from our standpoint.  The funniest part of all of this is how slow I am -- when I went to look at Biblio's site I discovered that all the other specialty SF, Fantasy, and Horror booksellers that I admire and consider my peers, like Paul Dobish, Lloyd Currey and Bob Brown, were there already.  So, if you're looking for quality books in our field, you'll almost undoubtedly do as well at as you would on ABE.  Probably better since most of the people I've spoken to who are still listing on ABE are planning on increasing their prices _only on ABE_ and/or not listing their "best" books there.

For many of you, our move to will be completely unnoticed.  But, if you're used to checking our inventory at our web site, you'll notice some changes in how the search function works.  There also may be some initial glitches as we get the new system worked out.  Needless to say, if you're used to searching our books on ABE, you'd best bookmark

Cafe Update

I finally have the plans that I've been waiting for since February.  Now we can finally get going with the structural repairs which we have to get out of the way before we can start with the actual permit process and getting the remodeling done.  I'm very happy.  I'm also buried in blueprints.  Who knew that the planning department would need a plan of the entire exterior of the building (all three stories of it)?  I'm sure there's a good reason -- there must be a good reason, right?

Well, I'm back to work.  Take care, everyone, and make sure to mark your calendar for this Thursday's Variety movie night.  I'll be the one in the corner with a roll of plans and a tall Scotch.

Notes From a DVD Geek

Heads up, animation fans.  Last year's kick-ass fantasy extravaganza, Howl's Moving Castle, (directed by Hayao Miyazaki and based on the Diana Wynne Jones novel of the same name) is now out on DVD.  I highly recommend this one.  Also available on DVD in the States for the first time is My Neighbor Totoro.  Totoro is widely regarded as Miyazaki's best film. and if you've enjoyed any of his other films, you should check this one out.

If you have already gotten a look at MirrorMask (which I mentioned last month), and want to sample some other movies that Neil Gaiman wrote or adapted for the screen, be sure to check out Miyazaki's Princess Mononoke, which was adapted to English by Neil.  The Miramax DVD features English language subtitles, and a passable English language dub, both based on Gaiman's script.  Also available on DVD is one of the first items that Gaiman wrote for the screen, Neverwhere, which actually started out as a screenplay for the BBC miniseries, and was later adapted into the novel of the same name.

Once you've put yourself in the mood for some BBC miniseries action, you should definitely check out their adaptation of Mervyn Peake's Gormenghast, which, given the dense and un-cinematic nature of the original prose, is better then anybody could have hoped for; in fact, it's quite good.

Just as last month brought you the interesting failure that was Dune, the extended edition, this month brings us Dominion: The Prequel to the Exorcist.  Some of you may have seen, or heard about The Exorcist: The Beginning, which was also a prequel to the Exorcist.  This movie wasn't very good.  It wasn't mind-numbingly awful, like the first sequel, Exorcist II: The Heretic.  It just wasn't very GOOD. Well, actually, yeah, it WAS pretty bad. 

Of course, like many Hollywood franchises, behind the Exorcist prequel was a long-running fight between the studio and the movie's original director, Paul "Taxi Driver" Shrader.  This fight got so bad that when Schrader turned in his version of the movie, the studio rejected it outright, and hired a new director (Renny "Deep Blue Sea" Harlin) to come in and shoot an almost entirely different movie, with only about 20% of the Renny movie coming from Shrader's shooting.

People have been talking about the "Paul Shrader Cut" of this movie for some time. . . Long before the actually-released movie hit the theaters, the internet was filled with rumors of how much better The Shrader cut was.  Internet fanboys around the world hoped that the DVD would have both versions of the movie, but last year they were disappointed.  Now, however, the studio has relented and quietly released Paul Shrader's Exorcist prequel as a separate DVD, with the title "Dominion:  The Prequel to the Exorcist".  The DVD features commentary by Shrader, which is a little dry at points, but also filled with some juicy details.  And while Dominion is no Taxi Driver, or Raging Bull, it is a pretty damn good movie -- much better then, say,  the actual Exorcist prequel.

If my descriptions of the different versions of The Exorcist Prequels seem a bit convoluted (or at least a bit intriguing) I recommend you take a look at an interview that The Guardian UK did with Shrader at (,6737,1175811,00.html )

Until next month. . . .

-Jeremy Lassen

P.S. If you are a science fiction fan, and you've never seen the movie Free Enterprise, you need to.  This Thursday, at the Variety Preview Room, it's free.  Otherwise you'll have to shell out for the Special Edition DVD that was just released.  And Logan's Run isn't nearly as bad as you remember it being.  (In fact, when viewed in light of a horrifying dystopia, all those bad 70's fashions amped up to the Nth degree are actually quite effective!)

April 8th at 3:00 pm: Scott Sigler, EARTHCORE (Dragon Moon Press) - Please join us in welcoming San Francisco author Scott Sigler, who will be presenting his new novel EARTHCORE.  From the author's press release: "Deep below a desolate Utah mountain sits the largest platinum deposit ever discovered.  A billion-dollar find, it waits for any company that can drill a world's record, three-mile-deep mine shaft.  Earthcore is the company with the technology, the resources and the guts to go after the mother lode. . . But at three miles below the surface, where the rocks are so hot they burn bare skin, something has been waiting for centuries.  Waiting. . . and guarding. . ."
Mr. Sigler is a creator of novels, short stories, and screenplays.  His work revolves primarily around modern science's dichotomy of simultaneously producing good and evil.  Don't miss this chance to meet him.  You can hear excerpts from the audiobook of Earthcore here: Prologue ( )
Chapters 1 -4 ( )
Chapter 5 ( )

Tuesday, April 18th at 7:00 pm: SF in SF: Rudy Rucker and John Shirley at New College of California - Come hear two of the original masters of cyberpunk read from their work and answer questions!  This event takes place at New College of California (777 Valencia Street), and is not organized or sponsored by Borderlands Books, although we'll be in attendance with books to sell, and we enthusiastically support these talks.  Admission to this event is $4.

Saturday, April 22nd at 3:00 pm: Jane Lindskold, WOLF HUNTING (Tor) - Borderlands is delighted to welcome Jane Lindskold, prolific author of THE BURIED PYRAMID, CHILD OF A RAINLESS YEAR, the FIREKEEPER series, DONNERJACK (completion of the novel begun by Roger Zelazny) and nearly a dozen others.  Ms. Lindskold will present her newest Firekeeper novel, WOLF HUNTING.  From Publisher's Weekly: " In the thrilling fifth installment of Lindskold's Firekeeper fantasy saga, Firekeeper, a human girl raised by a pack of wise wolves, receives a message from Truth, an oracular jaguar, that Firekeeper is the only one who can help her regain her sanity, which was lost in battle in the previous book, WOLF CAPTURED (2004).  Firekeeper's wolflike sense of curiosity leads her to accept Truth's challenge, and she soon takes to the road accompanied by, among others, Blind Seer, her faithful wolf companion, and Darian Carter, a native of the land of Liglim.  They seek to reunite Truth with her senses and to find out who belongs to the voice Truth is hearing in her head.  With a smaller cast of characters and more interaction between animals, this volume is more tightly focused than earlier entries in the series.  The intriguing plot makes for a quick and enjoyable read."  Ms. Lindskold doesn't get out to San Francisco often, so come on down on April 22nd!

Saturday, April 29th at 4:00 pm: FIREBIRDS RISING (Firebird) event with Kara Dalkey, Ellen Klages, and editor Sharyn November - Join us in welcoming authors Kara Dalkey and Ellen Klages and editor Sharyn November to Borderlands!  Penguin's website says "FIREBIRDS RISING is the eagerly anticipated follow-up to the award-winning anthology FIREBIRDS.  This collection takes readers from deep space to Faerie to just around the corner.  It is full of magic, humor, adventure, and — best of all — the unexpected.  The one thing readers can count on is marvelous writing.  FIREBIRDS RISING proves once again that Firebird is more than an imprint — it is a gathering place for writers and readers of speculative fiction from teenage to adult, from the United States to Europe, Asia, and beyond."  Jude says "I was very lucky to be able to read this brilliant collection early.  Kara Dalkey's story 'Hives' is both ingenious and chilling, a near-future look at the cruelty of groups of teenage girls, and Ellen Klages' 'In the House of the Seven Librarians' is a bittersweet, funny story that will appeal to any lover of libraries and reading, and those are just from the attending authors!  There are also exceptional stories by Nina Kiriki Hoffman (those of you who attended last year's Halloween Dusk 'Til Dawn Story Party may remember "Unwrapping"), Charles de Lint, Carol Emshwiller, Tamora Pierce, and so many others.  FIREBIRDS was one of the best books of 2003, and FIREBIRDS RISING is also excellent -- Sharyn November has gathered another collection of fabulous stories.  There is little to be sure of in this world, but I'm sure that you will like FIREBIRDS RISING.  Come for this reading and discussion; you'll be glad that you did."

Sunday, April 30th at 3:00 pm:  Pat Murphy, THE CITY, NOT LONG AFTER (Firebird) - Borderlands is very pleased to be able to host charming local (and award-winning) author Pat Murphy, and present the new printing of one of our favorite novels ever - THE CITY, NOT LONG AFTER.  This book has been out of print for far too long, and we are so glad that Firebird has brought it back.  Join us to hear Pat read an excerpt from this novel that celebrates the triumph of art and creativity over violence and fear in a radically changed future San Francisco.

Dog Soldiers and The Descent at Variety's Preview Room, Thursday, May 4th at 7:00 pm - Borderlands and Variety Children's Charity invite you to an independent British horror double feature.  The screenings will take place at Variety's Preview Room, located in The Hobart Building, 582 Market Street @ Montgomery, San Francisco.
Doors open at 6:30 pm and the first movie starts at 7:00 pm.  There will be one thirty-minute intermission between the two films.

Thursday, May 11th at 8:00 pm: World Horror Convention Group Signing - Just in case Thursday isn't busy enough, at the same time as our party for John Picacio, Borderlands will be hosting a group signing for many of the fabulous authors who are attending the World Horror Convention.  The complete list of guests is still be assembled, but we can guarantee that this will be one of the biggest gatherings of horror writers all year.

Thursday, May 11th: Sunday, May 14th: World Horror Convention in San Francisco - Yes, San Francisco is hosting the World Horror Convention this year!  Join Guests of Honor Kim Newman, Koji Suzuki, Brom, Bill Moseley, Toastmaster Peter Straub and lots more of your favorite authors at the Holiday Inn Golden Gateway on Van Ness.  We'll have more details on both the convention and the signing for you next month, but meatime, visit ( ).

Saturday, May 20th at 1:00 pm: Alan Dean Foster - Please join us in welcoming Alan Dean Foster, author of dozens of books and the creator of the beloved characters Pip and Flinx, among so many others.  From his web site: "Foster's work to date includes excursions into hard science-fiction, fantasy, horror, detective, western, historical, and contemporary fiction.  He has also written numerous non-fiction articles on film, science, and scuba diving, as well as having produced the novel versions of many films, including such well-known productions as Star Wars, the first three Alien films, and Alien Nation.  Other works include scripts for talking records, radio, computer games, and the story for the first Star Trek movie."  When he's not writing, Mr. Foster travels and adventures extensively.  You won't want to miss the chance to meet this fascinating author!

Saturday, May 20th at 3:00 pm: Michael Cadnum, CAN'T CATCH ME (Tachyon Publications) - Poet and novelist Michael Cadnum is the author of over two dozen books.  He has been a National Book Award Finalist and a Creative Writing Fellow of the National Endowment for the Arts.  He was twice a finalist for the Mystery Writers of America Edgar Award as well as a finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Award.  His newest collection of stories, CAN'T CATCH ME, contains eighteen myths and fairy tales retold; funny, biting, and startlingly new. 

Saturday, May 20th at 5:00 pm: Donald Sidney-Fryer, presenting George Sterling's THIRST OF SATAN (Hippocampus Press) - Donald Sidney-Fryer, the last of the Courtly Poets, will share his performance of and his insights about poet George Sterling.  Sterling is an unjustly forgotten American poet.  The pupil of Ambrose Bierce and the mentor of Clark Ashton Smith, Sterling achieved early fame with such "cosmic" poems as "The Testimony of the Suns" and "A Wine of Wizardry."  But these two works are just the most celebrated of many poems of fantasy and terror written by Sterling over a career that spanned three decades.  Come for the spectacle!

Sunday, May 21st at 3:00 pm: JAMES TIPTREE AWARD ANTHOLOGY VOL. 2 event with Michael Blumlein, Ellen Klages, Pat Murphy, and Julie Phillips - Details to come.

Friday, May 26th - Monday, May 29th: Baycon 2006 in San Jose -  Baycon, The San Francisco Bay Area Regional Science Fiction & Fantasy Convention, will be held Memorial Day weekend at the Doubletree Hotel in San Jose.  Borderlands will be on hand selling books and checking out the convention!  For more info, see

Saturday, June 3rd at 7:00 pm: Morbid Curiosity Magazine Turns 10 - Details to come.

Saturday, June 10th: Ripley's Birthday Sale -  The hairless cat turns four.  Come down to the annual Ripley's Birthday Sale and celebrate with an indifferent feline!  Buy two used paperbacks and get a third of equal or lesser value free, and all non-book items in the store (excluding staff and cat, sorry) are 10% off!  Ripley will of course be on hand to greet admirers and be spoiled, and there will also be cake and cat treats (but not together).  Ripley says "I already have everything I need, so instead of bringing me gifts, please donate some money or volunteer time to the San Francisco SPCA ( ) or to Wildcare ( ).  You'd better come and adore me, though."  Borderlands will also be donating a portion of the day's profits to the SFSPCA and Wildcare.  We hope to see you here!

Sunday, June 18th at 2:00 pm: Jacqueline Carey, KUSHIEL'S SCION (Warner) -  Borderlands is thrilled to welcome back Jacqueline Carey!  Carey will be touring to promote the first book in the much-anticipated new trilogy in the Kushiel series.  KUSHIEL'S SCION follows Imriel's journey through adolescence to young manhood as he wrestles with his complicated heritage and the conflicting desires that drive him.
Imriel de la Courcel's birth parents are history's most reviled traitors, but his adoptive parents, the Comtesse Phedre and the warrior-priest Joscelin, are Terre d'Ange's greatest champions.  Stolen, tortured and enslaved as a young boy, Imriel is now a Prince of the Blood; third in line for the throne in a land that revels in art, beauty and desire.  It is a court steeped in deeply laid conspiracies--and there are many who would like to see the young prince dead.   Despite his enemies, obstacles, and lineage, Imriel's greatest challenge is discovering how to be good and find his true self.  His journey to heal his soul is fraught with sorrow and joy beyond all expectation.
Jacqueline Carey writes with a unique blend of epic fantasy, historical flavor, and erotica.  Her previous publications include the nationally bestselling Kushiel's Legacy series, which includes KUSHIEL'S DART, KUSHIEL'S CHOSEN, and KUSHIEL'S AVATAR. 

Borderlands event policy - all events are free of charge.  You are welcome to bring copies of an author's books purchased elsewhere to be autographed (but we do appreciate it if you purchase something while at the event).  For most events you are welcome to bring as many books as you wish for autographs.  If you are unable to attend the event we will be happy to have a copy of the author's books signed or inscribed for you.  We can then either hold it until you can come in to pick it up or we can ship it to you.  Just give us a call or drop us an email.  If you live out of town, you can also ship us books from your collection to be signed.  Call or email for details.

Dead Names - The Dark History of the Necronomicon by Simon (Avon, Mass Market, $7.99)

A Dirty Job by Christopher Moore (Morrow, Hardcover, $24.95) - Take your pick between a standard first edition signed by the author, or an unnumbered signed limited edition containing a tipped-in signature sheet signed by the author!  (There is no escaping a signed copy of this book, darnit!)  Yet another wonderful book from Chris Moore that manages to cheerfully walk a dental-floss tightrope over the abyss of laugh-out-loud humor, heart wrenching, tear-jerking human drama, and flat-out, stone-cold, eye-blinking weirdness.  This new novel is set in San Francisco, and many of the locations will be familiar to you, but that's only one of the myriad reasons to read this book.  Several others: a remarkable exploration of the concept of "Beta Male", a horny, sarcastic Goth chef named Lily, an army of undead squirrel-things, sewer harpies, the requisite adorable androgynous dyke sister, and a cameo appearance from Jody of BLOODSUCKING FIENDS fame!  I really, really, liked it.  If Chris Moore is to your taste, you will love this book.  Recommended by Jude.

Science Fiction and Fantasy:

The Bonehunters - Malazan Book of the Fallen vol. 6 by Steven Erikson (Bantam, Hardcover, $37.60, and Trade Paperback, $25.47) - It's finally in.  The newest Malazan book.  We've already sold out our initial order and are halfway through our second (though they are still first printings).  If you want a hardcover you should call and reserve one now.

The Voyage of the Sable Keech by Neal Asher (Tor, Hardcover, $33.00) - I haven't read this one yet (too much work to do) but I'm really looking forward to this sequel to THE SKINNER.  Recommended (sight unseen) by Alan.

A Shadow in Summer - Long Price Quartet vol. 1 by Daniel Abraham (Tor, Hardcover, $24.95) - This book starts slowly, (okay, REALLY slowly,) but if you stick with it you'll be delighted when it suddenly closes around you like a trap.  The start of what promises to be a very interesting new fantasy series, this book plays out entirely in shades of grey, with complex, conflicted characters and a fully-developed culture.  Fans of Guy Gavriel Kay, or Brandon Sanderson's ELANTRIS will likely enjoy this book.  Recommended by Jude.

Dance of Time - Belisarius vol. 6 by Eric Flint and David Drake (Baen, Hardcover, $26.00) - The conclusion to the series begun in AN OBLIQUE APPROACH.  Very satisfying wrap-up in which Flint and Drake pull all the various threads together.  If you like alternate history, this series is a must-read. Recommended (along with all the other books in the series) by Alan.

Armies of Memory by John Barnes (Tor, Hardcover, $25.95) - The (probably) concluding volume in the series started with A MILLION OPEN DOORS and continued in EARTH MADE OF GLASS and THE MERCHANTS OF SOULS.  I've enjoyed almost everything that Barnes has written and I expect that this will be no exception.  Recommended in advance by Alan.
