The other day I visited one of my local comic shops on a whim. I was driving home and had no intention of stopping, but something made me pull into the parking lot. I walked in and began browsing the shelves, looking for nothing in particular. Then, randomly on a counter top in the back of the store, I found a set of small hardcover books.
It took all of two seconds for me to decide I needed these in my life. I’d never heard of the ‘Little Books’ series. Some research taught me that there were 15 in all, published by Borderlands Press. When I brought the set home I was a little saddened to find that it was missing the Neil Gaiman book, but the rest were all there. Some were even from the original signed printing.
I stumbled into an awesome set of books. What’s the best thing you’ve ever stumbled across on a random bookstore trip?
I hate how there’s this sense in society that men are the universal main character and that if a book has a male main character it’s for everyone, including girls and women, but if there’s a female main character it’s assumed the book is for a female audience. Essentially, men are people and women are women.
