I felt like the wind had been knocked out of me this morning when I heard that Loompanics Unlimited is closing its doors. I’ve been buying books regularly from Mike Hoy for 24 of Loompanics’ 30 years in the mail order biz. There was no more reliable source for “underground” and “dangerous” books than Hoy. Loompanics published a lot of essential radical volumes, too — including most of Claire Wolfe’s books. And no one published a more entertaining catalog than Hoy. Goddammit!
Well, another era has passed. At least we can all take advantage of the fact that Mike’s offering everything in his inventory at 50% off.
