I write books. My latest is a YA science fiction novel called Homeland (it's the sequel to Little Brother). More books: Rapture of the Nerds (a novel, with Charlie Stross); With a Little Help (short stories); and The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (novella and nonfic). I speak all over the place and I tweet and tumble, too.

  1. This seems to be against the rules of kickstarter. But obviously the project was approved which is a good thing. Someone at kickstarter has a heart!

    For the bookstore’s sake I hope the lease holder will be kind enough to allow them a reasonable amount of time. And won’t try to force them out by raising the rent. I’ve known good, and thriving, businesses that lost their lease and were forced out because the property owner had a higher paying client waiting in the wings.

      No, there was no reasonable amount of time! Everything had to get boxed up and taken out of the space. They almost had another location to move to in time – but the negotiations fell through, and now Reading Frenzy is the the hard spot of not making money while closed, having to pay to store everything while seeking a new location, and then all the costs of finding and setting up a new location. They really need the help, and they so deserve it!

    I’m from Portland and I can tell you, first-hand, that Reading Frenzy is worth it!
