First up is the 9th Academic Bookfair. It’s from July 11-15, 9 am to 7 pm, at the PTA Tent – Clamshell 2 Gen. Luna St. cor. Anda St., Intramuros, Manila. (Not exactly for you fiction fanatics, but those who are interested in education or need to get cheap stuff for school, feel free to drop by.)
Bidshot currently has this auction for Neil Gaiman paraphernalia (click on the Neil Gaiman banner). Bidding ends on Friday, and you can pick up the stuff at Fully Booked on Saturday. (Honestly, the items presented aren’t spectacular, except perhaps for the Sandman Dustcovers, but it’s terribly overpriced. But hey, you’re the Gaiman fans, and it’s your money.)
Haven’t been to Fully Booked in Rockwell yet, but I expect it should have relocated to the third floor by now. So if you go there, don’t be surprised if the ground floor is just an empty shell. Don’t fret, the bookstore lives. Meanwhile, Powerbooks has a new branch, this time in Shangri-La (which for me makes a whole lot more sense compared to having a National Bookstore branch there, considering its market).
Lastly, Neil Gaiman interviews Gorillaz for Wired magazine.
