Brisbane is about 700km away. It seems far Bouncy, but not for Australia. We drive or sometimes fly regularly to Brisbane, my oldest child lives there, (Teneriffe, Q). I know that comic shop.

It's not a comic shop. It sells books. There is a comic shop in Brisbane, but Pulp Fiction sells only a few graphic novels... :|

Groovy, I know where you're talking about now. Looks like a good shop. Will be in Brisbane soon, definitely check it out. I think the place I'm thinking about is in ELizabeth St. Around the corner from Dymocks. I could be wrong, again, though.

I think Comics Etc left the spot you're thinking of a few years back.

There used to be a brilliant science fiction shop called Fan Attic. Loved that place, but it shut down years ago... :cry:

Fan Attic - great name! :clap:



Anyhoo, as well as reading the Paterson book, I'm also reading Sourcery on my Kindle.

I wasn't going to buy this book, but it was only £10 in Tesco, so I bought two of them. :oops:

Ahh.

Doesn't it get a tad heavy, carrying all these books over to the US?
