It appears that some people don’t believe that the bookstore isn’t closing for financial reasons. Fine, be that way. Would it have been easier to swallow if had claimed that aliens came to me one night and said:
“These books must go! We are tired of tripping over them each month when we come to take your family away for experimentation. Tomorrow you will begin the process of closing this business down or we will be forced to dust off the probe! Oh and by the way, that baby wasn’t an oops, it’s exactly what we planned.”
They seem ok with me going into publishing.
