see what I could find. They took the opportunity while they were
closed for the pandemic to completely rearrange the store. I'm not
sure what their aim was but it is laid out strangely. They don't have
the book shelves in straight lines with aisles between. They seem to
be in coves, with the books around the sides. The Science Fiction
section is also weird. For one thing they separated it into Science
Fiction and Fantasy. That always works so well. There are a lot of
SF books that bridge the gap between SF and Fantasy. And there seems
to be some sort of split in the Fantasy section, as if there were 2
kinds of fantasy. I'm not positive about that, it may just be that I
was bemused by their strange arrangement.
I suppose I will get used to it. But it was strange.
And they also didn't have a couple of books that I was expecting to
find. 'The Glass Magician' by Caroline Stevermer, and a new one by
Lisa Shearin, I can't remember the title right off hand, but it is
apparently the start of a new series.
