View this email in your browser
Greetings to Our Friends!

Welcome to our third official newsletter, and we're glad that so many of you have told us how much you're enjoying these monthly missives!

We've got some big news this issue: we've finally added a shopping cart to our website and we're now in the process of listing around 10,000 of our books for your browsing pleasure. Remember, this is still only a fraction of our 125,000 books, so always feel free to ask if you don't see what you're looking for.

And of course drop us a line with comments, suggestions, criticism, whatever. Or send us your Zeus and Apollo photos, and we'll feature them!

Happy Spring!
Dan, Lisa, Morgan, Bob, Ricky, Poul, Brett, Sean, Kevin, Zeus and Apollo

WHAT'S IN THE SAFE?
Have you ever noticed the big safe full of books behind Iliad's front counter? We get asked about it frequently. "Is it really old?" is a common question (the answer: no, we bought it new just a few years ago). But most customers want to know what kind of books merit storage in a safe (we think of these as the rarest of our rare books), so in this column we'll pick one book every month and tell you about it. This month's book is...
Icon: A Retrospective By the Grand Master of Fantastic Art Frank Frazetta, limited edition art book signed by Frazetta!

BOOK NEWS
Did you know that horror literature has its own version of the Oscar? That's right - the Bram Stoker Award is given out every year in eleven categories.

First presented by the Horror Writers Association in 1988, the winners are announced each year at a gala awards banquet held in a different city. The awards have been presented in locations as diverse as Brighton, England, Toronto, Canada, and (last year) Las Vegas, Nevada...but this year they'll be held in nearby Long Beach, aboard the historic Queen Mary.

Taking place April 27-April 30, the Stoker Awards presentation is part of a larger event called StokerCon. The weekend will include guests like George R. R. Martin, Chuck Wendig, Elizabeth Hand, Tananarive Due, and many more. StokerCon will also include panels, special activities for librarians, an academic conference, workshops for writers, and a film competition. And hopefully the awards presenters won't get the wrong envelopes!
