Win Heather Christle Week

barnstormerOyfliffle is Heather Christle Week at HTMLGIANT. There will be chances to win one of the dwindling numbers of Heather’s Nor By Press broadside, Barnstormer, leading up to the Ag Read-ing at NYU this Friday w/ Diane Williams, Matthew Rohrer, Joshua Cohen. Sela. 


UPDATE Not to be outdone by Noö (see below), Walser & Co. is now giving away Barnstormer + Heather’s Notnostrums broadside Vespers 

1) Leave the name/location of a favorite bookstore in the comments (optional: tell us whether they stock, or might stock, Octopus Books) and Maggie (pictured below) will choose the winner of BarnstormerHastings style, and some of the stop-motion stars of When You Think of It will choose the winner of Vespers. 2) Order the The Difficult Farm directly from Octopus Books and be entered in a drawing. (Pick up Matvei Yankelvich‘s Boris by the Sea while you’re at it.) 3) A Barnstormer will be tucked into one of the Farms for sale at Friday’s reading. (Ante)penultimately (for there’s at least one more contest in store), Mike Young will be giving away a copy of The Difficult Farm at Noö Journal. Heather has gently consented to consolidate details on her blog. And don’t forget to win the Week itself at HTMLGIANT.

Well heck, I’ll jump in. My favorite bookstore is a little place in Wicker Park called Quimby’s. I love them because they carry a wide variety of books, graphic novels, adult fare and just generally some strange things, and some really beautiful books. I saw Chuck Palahniuk read there and just caught Stephen Elliott there too. I’ve been meaning to pick up some of Heather’s work, so…we’ll see if this works! 🙂

My favorite bookstore is DogStar Books (529 West Chestnut Street Lancaster, PA 17603). They would definitely stock Octopus Books. It’s a local independent bookstore that is very comfy. Check them out at http://www.dogstarbooks.com

Politics and Prose in Washington, DC. There are amazing bookstores all over the world, some breathtaking in their design, location, or inventory, but Politics and Prose is my hometown favorite. Amazing readings, friendly and professional staff, and an outstanding buyer.

Probably GREEN APPLE in San Francisco. There’s also the Book Worm in Beijing.

Currently my favorite bookstore is Santa Cruz Bookshop. But they do not have Octopus books. But I have Difficult Farm! But I do not have a broadside.
