Meisha Merlin Book Rescue

A plea for help from book-loving Atlanta locals has been broadcast on several fans’ LiveJournals, including http://eugie.livejournal.com/364858.html.

SF publisher Meisha Merlin, which shut down in November, has tens of thousands of books in its Stone Mountain warehouse (1440 Kelton Drive, Stone Mountain, GA) that need to be rescued or they will be destroyed/recycled.

Sean Wallace, Publisher/Editor with Prime Books/Wildside Press, cited as the source of this announcement, is renting a truck. He has only a pallet jack available to load it, so he has to fill the truck by hand. He’ll be in town Tuesday and Wednesday (4/22 and 4/23) to load up, and he’s desperate for volunteers to help him. Anyone who volunteers can cart off any books they want that don’t fit into the truck. If you can help out, e-mail Sean at: seanwallace@comcast.net
