A cautionary incitement from one of the world's better-known authors:
"Support your local independent bookstore. Independent bookstores are an endangered species. I don't know a single one that isn't struggling to survive against the triple whammy of the Barnes and Noble conglomerates, the Costco/Walmart chains, and the Internet bookstores. If you want to assure that in the future we'll have access to books that Walmart doesn't want to discount, books that serve smaller, more specialized markets than B&N wants to deal with, and that can be sold to you by a real, live human being, support the independents now before it's too late."
-- Starhawk, Dec. '98
