San Diego’s Mysterious Galaxy bookstore lost its lease and needs to find a buyer – stat!

Cory Doctorow, Boing Boing:

Mysterious Galaxy is a wonderful, longstanding science fiction bookstore, host to readings for the Clarion Workshop, designated bookseller for Comic-Con signings, and much more.

In an email to customers and stakeholders, owner Terry Gilman has offered the store for sale on a “turnkey” basis, seeking offers before November 20th. The store has 60 days to vacate its location and unless a new owner and location have been found by then, Southern California will lose one of its most storied, best independent bookstores, and science fiction and fantasy will lose one of its greatest, longest-standing genre bookstores.
