this is pretty cool, thought you, guys, would like to know about this -

Our Big Idea is a simple one, but we think it’s pretty great.

Written by Ash. Posted in Frontpage

We love books.  A lot. And we love sci-fi books, new and old.  But mostly old.
And there are a lot of great old sci-fi books out there that are out of print, out of circulation, and, worst of all, not available in any sort of digital format.
Given the subject material, that’s just not right.
So here’s what we’re going to do.  We’re going to open a bookshop, both online and and in real life, in Brooklyn, NY where we live and work.  It doesn’t have to make much money.  It doesn’t have to make any money at all, since our day jobs cover our rent.
But what it will do is let us choose one great out of print work of classic and/or obscure sci-fi a month, track down the people that hold the copyright (if they are still around), and publish that work online and on all the major digital book platforms for little or no cost. Every month on this website visitors will get to vote on the next great but not so well remembered work we will rescue from the obscurity of the past.
We’re going to take some of the greatest works of imagination of the 20th Century, and bring them into the 21st, and you can help, by subscribing today!

I saw this the other day and it really is cool.  Thanks for posting here.  What I like the most, and this makes me incredibly jealous, is that they have a brick and mortar store too!  Here's a gallery of pics from their grand opening.  So, so jealous.  I wish them the best of luck in their new venture.
