Happy New Year!
* Borderlands Cafe is finally open! Come check it out any day of
the week; the cafe is open from 8:00 am - 9:00 pm and it's located
right next to the bookstore at 870 Valencia Street. The cafe
serves coffee and espresso drinks, tea (you MUST try the Spice Tea!),
organic juices, pastries, bagels, and light meals. The hot chocolate
and spiced cider are especially good. The cafe will soon carry
lots of general interest magazines -- right now they're trickling in,
but we still have upwards of 100 periodical titles for you to peruse
with your coffee or tea.
Borderlands Cafe also has no wi-fi. Alan made the decision after
much discussion among the staff and customers, and he determined that
the cafe should be a social place for readers, writers and others, and
not have the "office vibe" that wi-fi so often induces.
We hope you'll like the new business as much as you like Borderlands. Welcome to the Cafe!
* The two stories that Jay Lake and Ken Scholes co-wrote in the store
months ago have appeared at Tor.com! Be sure to read Shannon
Page's rollicking description of the event here <http://www.tor.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=blog&id=58361> and then the two stories, which contain cameo appearances by some familiar names: <http://www.tor.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=story&id=58363> and <http://www.tor.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=story&id=58362>
* Stephen and Tabitha King donated $12,999 so that members of a Maine
unit serving in Afghanistan could come home for the holidays -- because
$13,000 would have been unlucky: <http://www.bangordailynews.com/detail/132676.html>.
* Jane Lindskold has started a blog! You can follow her weekly updates here: <http://janelindskold.wordpress.com/>
* Adidas, the sneaker company, has a new "Star Wars" line for
2010. That's so geeky I can't even think of a clever phrase to
announce it. <http://www.starwars.com/vault/collecting/news20091208/index.html>
* Thanks to your generous donations, Borderlands sent nearly $450 to
help with Jeanne Robinson's medical bills. We're continuing to
collect money for her, so if you can assist, drop some cash in the jar
at the counter, or see <http://wedreamforjeanne.blogspot.com/> for more ways to help.
* Thanks to the several customers who sent us to Tor.com and Neil
Gaiman's "I, Cthulhu, or, What's A Tentacle-Faced Thing Like Me Doing
In A Sunken City Like This (Latitude 47, 9' S, Longitude 126, 43' W)?"
* Ripley health update: Thanks to all the concerned folks who have
asked after Ripley's health recently, prompting me to publicly address
it. You may remember that in summer and fall of 2008, Ripley
underwent two cancer surgeries and then radiation treatment.
Well, cross fingers, she's totally recovered and is now cancer-free,
but a weird side effect of the radiation treatment was that she started
to grow hair! Well, more fuzz that hair, but we still have a
fuzzy, formerly-hairless cat. Additional news is that Ripley has
been diagnosed with hypothyroid, and is now on pills to address
that. Look for a thinner, more energetic Ripley in the months to
* I know, MORE cat news? Two videos to help you start your new
year with Ripley and Ash. First, almost 8 minutes of adorable
baby Ripley in 2003: <http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cbLco_Nw2Mw&feature=related> and a recent video of both cats: <http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O9J1xBgzizA>
* In sobering news, Dr. Peter Watts, science fiction author of
BLINDSIGHT and many others, was beaten and arrested at the US
border. Article here from BoingBoing: <http://www.boingboing.net/2009/12/11/dr-peter-watts-canad.html>
* In really heartbreaking news, author Kage Baker is gravely ill.
This is a terrible tragedy, as Kage is one of the most kind, witty,
intelligent, arch, and talented writers and genuinely wonderful people
I've ever had the pleasure to know. Rarely do I find myself
railing at the unfairness of the Universe, but this is certainly one
case -- it is just awful. Cards, letter, emails and prayers for
Kage are welcome. You can read the statement from Kathleen here;
it also contains the addresses to send correspondence: <http://tribes.tribe.net/renfairehistorysnobs/thread/c6091923-27e4-438c-ac8e-0e28d596b85d#402bb8f2-e567-471b-9fad-6ed5551c4f2e>
Overheard in the Store
Okay, so normally this section is called "Overheard at
the Con," and we only print it when we attend conventions &
overhear things at them. Well, you guys are just so gosh-darn
quotable that we'll be expanding the section to include funny,
out-of-context things we occasionally overhear at the store, too.
(And no fair oh-so-casually dropping funny quotes just so we'll include
them in the newsletter!)
"I'm just at the part where the werewolf kisses her. It's gone on for four pages; it's pretty intense!"
"I want to stab law school in the face."
From The Office
First off, please forgive me for
the lateness of this newsletter. Jude had it ready to go out a
week ago (late, but not too bad -- given the givens) but she was
holding it waiting for this piece and my article about ebooks.
For my part, it's been a _very_ long few weeks and, though I've had
time to write, I haven't had the concentration to do so.
You faithful readers and customers probably have a guess as to what's
been taking up so much of my time and brain-space. The new cafe
next door has been operating for just a bit over a month now and it's
proving to be a fair amount of work. Moreover, it's hard to
switch gears from being the manager there (as well as the #1 dishwasher
-- I tell you, I'm one fast devil with a bussing tray full of cups) to
being bookseller guy. But, I'm managing and things there are
going quite well. I'm lucky to have a great crew to work with
(Jim, Chris, John, Naamen, Cole and Peter are just as pleasant and
quirky a group as the folks on the bookstore side. Just about as
well read, too) and the day-to-day operations are getting to be
routine. I've seen a fair number of customers from the bookstore
over there and it's been great to get your feedback and ideas.
I'm looking forward to getting some of the final bugs out of the
operation over there and then settling in for the process of building
up the business and customer base. I hope to have the place
operating in a mostly self-sufficient way in about six months or so and
then I'll be moving my office back to the bookstore. But for now,
you'll find me in the cafe most of the time that I'm at work. My
desk is set up towards the back and I'd love it if you'd say "hi" when
you stop by.
I've two little pieces of cafe business that I'd like to mention before
I close this. Firstly, I'm looking for local artists who would
like to show their work at the cafe. If that's your thing or if
you know someone who might be interested, please drop me a line and
we'll get something set up. I'm open to most sorts of static art
and I would be proud to feature our customers' work.
Secondly, if you have a group of some sort that could use a place to
meet, please consider meeting at the cafe. We've plenty of room
and I would be happy to reserve space for groups that need a place to
meet. Providing that sort of service was one of my original goals
when I started planning this and I'd love to make it a reality.
In closing, I hope that the new year is treating you well and bringing you all that you hope.
New Media Update
Three big pieces of news on the ebook front this month.
Probably the biggest is that Apple is going to be announcing their
tablet device next week at a press event in San Francisco. The
rumor mill has been running overtime on this topic but there is one
thing that relates specifically to ebooks that's worthy of note.
Apple has been in negotiations with Harper Collins about selling
Harper's content and the terms that have been discussed are
significant. Apple has basically offered to act as the middle-man
in selling the books and has offered Harper 70% of the selling price,
which will be set by Harper. This is significantly different from
Amazon's sales term in which Amazon sets the retail price and the
publisher sets the wholesale price. Amazon's price point of $9.99
has made a number of publishers very uncomfortable since they are
concerned (despite their wholesale price control, which has often made
major books loss-leaders for Amazon since the publisher's wholesale
price has been _higher_ than Amazon's selling price) about a future
wherein Amazon's market control will allow them to dictate prices to
The Apple offer is essentially the same as what is offered software
developers at the iPhone App Store and is a deal that would make most
publishers much more comfortable. If this goes thorough, you can
expect publishers to be much more supportive of Apple's devices and
channels than they are of Amazon.
Not to be outdone, Amazon announced today that they are changing their
deal with publishers to offer . . . you guessed it, 70% of the selling
price on ebooks sold for the Kindle. But, there are a number of
restrictions on this deal as well as some hidden costs. The
biggest restriction is that the books may not be priced over Amazon's
self-set ceiling of $9.99. I don't expect many publishers to be
thrilled with the new terms.
The final bit of news is that Asus, a company which has distinguished
itself in the netbook market (i.e. low priced, small laptop-type
computers, designed primarily for web-surfing and email), has announced
an ebook reader to be released late this year. The twist on this
one is a very long battery life (i.e. days of full usage) and a color,
organic light emitting diode (OLED) screen. OLEDs are a new-ish
technology which have not seen common usage due to price and longevity
concerns, but compared to current LCD screens they are substantially
better since they have a faster response time (which means less screen
flicker), use much less power (since they don't need any additional
light source like the back-light of an LCD display), and are capable of
displaying true, dark black shades (which LCDs also cannot do, due to
the same back-light requirement that increases their power
consumption). An ebook reader with an OLED screen would be truly
remarkable since it would be able to have the sort of long battery life
that is only provided by eInk displays now, combined with color
rendering and fast response time, which would make it possible to
display both video and color content like magazines and comic books.
Next month you can expect some information about Apple's offering and
perhaps a bit of speculation about the effects that it may have on the

Notes From a DVD Geek
Welcome to 2010. While most of the world is focused on James
Cameron's latest special effects extravaganza ("Avatar," AKA "Dances
With Smurfs"), I thought I'd start out the new year by going over some
of Cameron's earlier efforts. Cameron's first film job involved
building miniature sets, and supervising process-projection on Roger
Corman's "Battle Beyond the Stars". Not a great movie by any
means, but Roger Corman once again launches the career of a future
Hollywood heavyweight. Cameron's first directorial effort was
still within the area of low-budget genre thrillers -- "Piranha 2: The
Spawning". He was originally hired to be the special effects director,
but the director quit before production started, and he inherited the
From such humble beginnings comes greatness -- or at least, extreme
commercial success. Cameron wrote and directed 1984's "The
Terminator," starring a future California Governor. Not much
needs to be said about this, other then the original "Terminator"
should not be confused with the big-budget sequel. The original
"Terminator" was a relatively low-budget affair, very much a natural
successor to "Battle Beyond the Stars" (remember those cool robotic
miniatures scenes in "Terminator"? Yeah. Thank Roger Corman
for giving Cameron a shot at making miniatures.) It was a big
hit, and gave Cameron the street credibility he needed to step up to
the next budgetary rung on the ladder. Twentieth Century Fox
handed off their successful SF/horror franchise to them, and he
delivered what many feel is the best movie in the Alien Series of
films. With two big hits under his belt, Cameron continued to
push the SFX and logistical possibilities of movie making to their
"The Abyss" was legendary for its underwater sets, underwater shooting,
and technology developed specifically to shoot this epic. It also
had some cool "Alien" CGI imagery, which Cameron put to good use in his
next film. "Terminator 2" was a big budget extravaganza . . . the
definition of Hollywood blockbuster. Big stars. Big
explosions. Big budget (Over $100 million . . . the first movie
to have that size budget). It also featured cutting-edge special
effects that one year later would be incorporated into music videos and
commercials everywhere. Remember the morphing Terminator and how
revolutionary the effects technology seemed at the time? What
really was revolutionary was just how quickly Cameron's morphing
technology made it out into the wider world. After "T2", Cameron
had only two other movies come out in the 90's: an Arnold vehicle,
called "True Lies," and a little chick-flick that somehow managed to
have a budget of over $200 million, called "Titanic". Now that
"Avatar" has "redefined" movie-making, expect to see "Avatar" CGI
character technology in every music video and cell phone commercial in
2010 and 2011. (I'm not jaded or anything.)
But if Cameron's career has proven anything, it's that the new cutting
edge FX of his movies quickly become commonplace. Cameron keeps
pushing those FX boundaries, and that's all well and good. But
what holds up over the years? All of these movies, of course, are
available on DVD so you can check them out for yourself. For my money,
"Terminator" and "The Abyss" hold up remarkably well. For some
reason, I like "Aliens" less and less every time I see it, so sometime
about 5 years ago, I stopped re-watching it. Your millage may vary.
"T2," even more so then "Aliens," hasn't aged very well for me. I
loved it when it came out; Linda Hamilton ruled the screen, and was one
of the original "chicks who kick ass". But. I don't know .
. . it's just not doing it for me any more. "True Lies" has
either aged spectacularly well, or horribly, depending on your views of
Arab caricatures and thrill rides involving terrorism.
"Titanic"? Well, I am one of the only people on the planet
who has not watched "Titanic". I'll let you, the readers, make
your own judgments about that one. Even more embarrassing then
"Titanic" . . . I have to admit that I have never seen "Piranha 2: The
Spawning". This is doubly embarrassing because it includes in its
cast Lance Henicksen. I need to run out and watch that. Right
now. I'll talk to you next month when the world isn't going crazy
about Cameron, and get you caught up on all the new releases of early

Upcoming Event Details
Malinda Lo, ASH, (Little, Brown, Hardcover, $16.99) Saturday, January 23rd at 3:00 pm -
Local author Malinda Lo presents a charming and fascinating twist on
the traditional Cinderella story, but utlimately takes this novel to a
whole new (and more complex) level than the original tale. I've
been hearing this book described as a "lesbian Cinderella story," but
it's really much more well-written, complicated and memorable than that
description implies. Come meet Ms. Lo and check out one of the
more interesting debuts of 2009!
Diana Paxson & Deborah J.
Ross: "From Avalon to Darkover, New Adventures in the Worlds of Marion
Zimmer Bradley," Sunday, January 24th at 3:00 pm - Join us for a
joint reading and discussion with these two prominent authors, both of
whom worked closely with Marion Zimmer Bradley!
Connie Willis, BLACKOUT (Spectra, Hardcover, $26.00) Thursday, February 4th at 7:00 pm -
From Random House: "In her first novel since 2002, Nebula and Hugo
award-winning author Connie Willis returns with BLACKOUT, a stunning
novel of time travel, war, and the deeds -- great and small -- of
ordinary people who shape history. In the hands of this acclaimed
storyteller, the past and future collide -- and the result is at once
intriguing, elusive, and frightening. BLACKOUT follows three
researchers from the future, stranded in the past during the London
Blitz of World War II. Eileen is researching the Children's
Evacuation from a remote country manor. Polly is masquerading as
a London shop girl while she studies people's behavior during the
Blitz. And Mike is exploring what makes everyday people turn into
heroes at the evacuation of Dunkirk. But when each of their drops
to the future refuses to open, these three refugees must somehow find
each other and figure out how to return to their own time-before it is
too late. From the people sheltering in the tube stations of
London to the retired sailors who set off across the Channel to rescue
the stranded British Army from Dunkirk, from spies to hospital nurses
to Shakespearean actors, BLACKOUT reveals a side of World War II seldom
seen before: a dangerous, desperate world in which there are no
civilians and in which everybody -- from the Queen down to the lowliest
barmaid -- is determined to do their bit to help a beleaguered nation
survive. Told with passion, humor, and a historian's
understanding of the period, BLACKOUT once again proves why Willis is
so beloved by both critics and readers alike."
Terry Bisson, FIRE ON THE MOUNTAIN (PM Press, Trade Paperback, $15.95) Saturday, February 6th at 3:00 pm -
We're pleased to welcome local author Terry Bisson back to
Borderlands! Originally published in 1988, FIRE ON THE MOUNTAIN
is a fascinating alternate history now re-released by activist
publisher PM Press. From PM Press' site: "It's 1959 in socialist
Virginia. The Deep South is an independent Black nation called Nova
Africa. The second Mars expedition is about to touch down on the red
planet. And a pregnant scientist is climbing the Blue Ridge in search
of her great-great grandfather, a teenage slave who fought with John
Brown and Harriet Tubman's guerrilla army. Long unavailable in
the US, published in France as NOVA AFRICA, FIRE ON THE MOUNTAIN is the
story of what might have happened if John Brown's raid on Harper's
Ferry had succeeded - and the Civil War had been started not by the
slave owners but the abolitionists."
Ray Garton, SCISSORS (Leisure, Mass Market, $7.99) Saturday, February 13th at 3:00 pm -
Were you thinking "My Valentine's Day just won't be complete without
some extreme physical horror"? Look no further, 'cause one of the
masters is coming to Borderlands. Meet Ray Garton and help
celebrate the paperback release of his novel SCISSORS, previosly only
available in a pricey limited hardcover. C'mon, the botched
genital operation and the revolting Santa Claus are just the beginning!

Chapter Two - Book Listings
Small Press Features
ON ZANZIBAR by John Brunner (Centipede Press, Signed, Limited Editon
(300 copies) Hardcover, $225.00) - This incredible edition is signed by
Kim Stanley Robinson, (who wrote the introduction) and also contains
the tipped-in signature of John Brunner! In the early 1980's,
Brunner was working on a project with the late Charles Brown of Locus
Magazine, and signed a few hundred signature sheets for that
book. Brunner passed away in 1985, and since the project Charles
was working on never came to pass, when he heard about Centipede Press'
lovely new edition of ZANZIBAR, he sent the signature sheets to the
publisher for inclusion. This is truly a unique volume.
FROM THE PEN OF PAUL: THE FANTASTIC IMAGES OF PAUL R. FRANK by Paul R.
Frank, edited by Earl Korshak (Shasta-Phoenix, Hardcover, $59.95 and
Oversized Paperback, $24.95) - A really lovingly-produced and beautiful
collection of this seminal artist's work.
HOUSE OF WINDOWS by John Langan (Night Shade Books, Hardcover, $24.95)
- From Night Shade Books: "When a young writer finds himself cornered
by a beautiful widow in the waning hours of a late-night cocktail
party, he seeks at first to escape, to return to his wife and infant
son. But the tale she weaves, of her missing husband, a renowned
English professor, and her lost stepson, a soldier killed on a
battlefield on the other side of the world, and of phantasmal visions,
a family curse, and a house . . . the Belvedere House, a striking
mansion whose features suggest a face hidden just out of view, draws
him in, capturing him. What follows is a deeply psychological
ghost story of memory and malediction, loss and remorse. This unnerving
tour de force, exploring the literary haunted house, from Charles
Dickens, Edgar Allan Poe, and H. P. Lovecraft to today, incorporates
family trauma, abstract art, literary criticism, the occult Dickens,
and the war in Afghanistan. From John Langan (MR. GAUNT AND OTHER
UNEASY ENCOUNTERS) comes HOUSE OF WINDOWS, a chilling novel in the
tradition of Peter Straub, Joe Hill, and Laird Barron."
SLIGHTLY BEHIND AND TO THE LEFT by Claire Light (Aqueduct Press, Trade
Paperback, $12.00) - We're excited to be stocking local author (and
customer!) Claire Light's first collection. I've just started it,
so I'll let the publisher tell you about it: "Claire Light's fiction
shifts our perspective just enough off-center to render the world we
know a strange and unfamiliar place. In this volume, a woman with the
most thankless job in space will calculate a new kind of "cold
equation" to get her home to port. In a fantastical place where
adulthood is the biggest threat to adolescent boys, predators arise
from unlikely quarters. In a world with wonky physics and no gravity, a
lone human learns the meaning of "reckless endangerment of alien life."
And an alien abduction is only prelude to a long phantasmagoric
journey. Interspersed with evocative flash fictions, this collection of
stories luxuriates in the weird and wonky, half-lit realities and
sidelong looks at painful truths."
STRANGE TALES VOL. 3 edited by Rosalie Parker (Tartarus Press, Limited
Edition (500 copies) Hardcover, $50.00) - From Tartarus Press: "The
strange tale is alive and well and flourishing at the beginning of the
twenty-first century. These seventeen brand new stories, representing
the very best of contemporary weirdness, range from the mythical terror
of Adam Golaski's "The Great Blind God Passing Through Us", to John
Gaskin's assured ghost story, "Party Talk", in which an elderly lady
tells her disturbing tale. Circus folk take in an abandoned girl
with unforeseen consequences in Nina Allen's Machenian "The Lammas
Worm,". In "Countess Otho", Reggie Oliver's actor protagonist finds
success after he inherits the manuscript of an unproduced play: but
what is the precise cause, and the price, of his new found fame? The
curator of a dream museum has an interesting appointment in Mark
Valentine's "Morpheus House", while in "Her Father's Daughter", Simon
Strantzas thoroughly subverts the familiar horror trope of a young
woman seeking help at an isolated farmhouse. These and more await
the reader of Strange Tales III."
