LCRW map

lcrw wrestles with the future Here’s a map of the bookshops that carry LCRW. Not many! Any help appreciated and followed up in an incredibly slow manner. Hello again Google! We’ve been waiting to map this for 15 years—long before we started the zine. Maybe that’s why we started the zine? Who can remember?

Anyway. How can we take over the world with The Best of LCRW if we have fallen to this few bookshops? Remember the days you could buy LCRW at the checkout at Target? Or when Isaac Miyake designed the free zine bag gotten with a Nordstrom Level LCRW subscription?

God those were either good days or good drugs. And of course we are a drug free environment (barring naturally occurring endorphins and alcohol) here at Small Beer, so they must have have been great days.

So many non-LCRW states!

Come on shops d’books: wouldn’t you like a twice-a-year stack of stapled, no spine, b&w zines? This is the best collection of short fiction gathered in the slowest time in a zine named after an American emigrant. It’s the ultimate impulse buy… James Patterson writes for it… It’s all wonderful but ultimately tragic stories about puppies… It has a few Secrets in every issue…

What’s that? No booksellers read these pages. Darn.

    Don’t forget Magers & Quinn. There’s a handsome looking stack of robots right beside the front register. This might not expand the geographical coverage much (M&Q is only a ten minute walk westwards of DreamHaven), but it’s something.

    Oops, thanks Will! Updated the Map.

    Magers & Quinn emailed us to get the zine (because they are crazy good people) and are our newest store. We are so happy. They should have just received their 1st Package De Le LCRW. Yes, we were slow to mail out LCRW to stores and to chocophilliac subscribers. But wethinks they are all out now.

    PS Google has 9,920 hits on wethinks and only 6 for chocophiliacs.
