getting easier to find

Dear Internet,

We thought we’d let you know that Explosion-Proof has come to more bookstores, perhaps one among them more convenient to you. This is kind of the most recent fruit of a recent big-get for us, when we were picked up by two distributors, U and I, just in time for Issue 4: The State of Union. That was rather huge, because previous to that our distribution mechanism was limited to, more or less, ourselves and our backpacks, walking to bookstores one at a time. Also, mailing boxes to friends in distant cities, filled with magazines and instructions to go haggling about wherever books are sold.

Needless to say, we are of course EXTRA appreciative of all the bookstores that carried us when we were greenest, and who carry us yet. Theirs is, of course, the braver generosity.

Anywho, we’re still waiting on information from one of our distributors, but the other just let us know that they sold their inaugural swath of magazines to Barnes and Nobles, the first round of which will be sent out to the following stores:

AK: Fairbanks; AZ: Gilbert; FL: Pensacola, Orlando, Jensen Beach, Melbourne, Boynton Beach; GA: Atlanta (Buckhead, Edgewood), Savannah, Alpharetta, Columbus; IL: Chicago (North State Street), Crystal Lake, Dekalb, Schaumburg, Carbondale, Vernon Hills; IN: Bloomington, Carmel; KS: Topeka; KY: Florence; LA: Metarie; MI: Royal Oak, Ann Arbor (Huron Village), Rochester Hills, Flint; MN: Minneapolis (Calhoun), Roseville, Edina; MO: Des Peres, St Louis (Crestwood), Independence; MS: Ridgeland; NC: Pineville, Durham, Cary, Huntersville, Raleigh, Jacksonville, Greenville; OH: Pickerington, Columbus; SC: Columbia; TN: Knoxville, Murfreesboro, Chattanooga;TX: Austin (Arboretum), Arlington, Bee Cave, Fort Worth, Houston (West Oaks, Village, River Oaks Shopping Center), Pasadena, El Paso (Sunland Park); WI: Wauwatosa

There you have it. Apparently, those locations should proliferate within the vague future; and of course as soon as we hear from our other distributor (whose smaller individual units-of-sale dictate locally, rather than nationally, precedent stores; we’re also about that very much), we will keep you, Internet, posted.

But in the mean time, should you or your hip, hip mother-in-law live in any of those towns beyond our previous range of feet and friends, well, now thither Explosion-Proof giyerder, as they say.
