Tonight at the Curiosity Shoppe

Tonight is book night at the Curiosity Shoppe, a cool boutique on 4th Street just north of South Street. Several local authors will be there to read from their work and talk about the books. Don Ron Books will be there in the guise of Christopher Munden, editor and publisher of the Philly Fiction series. Come for some free literature, free drinks, and good people, plus take a second to browse the shelves and clothing racks and find out why the City Paper called the Curiosity Shoppe "the best place for last minute gifts."

Philly Fiction 2 plug on

Cornslaw Industries is a cool web project dedicated to the inimitable task of "putting stuff on the web that wasn't there before." It has had some crazy writings, video, and forums in time, but is now mainly dedicated to releasing music of varied quality. A low-fi digital single release by Philly Fiction editor Chris Munden provided an excuse to promote Philly Fiction 2. Thanks to Colin and everyone (?) at

Look out for the new seven-inch vinyl release by the related Uncle Nicky Records featuring two great Philly acts, Chris Kasper and Mason Porter. For now it's only available at the performers' concerts, but plans are underway for a digital store.

Philly Fiction at the Piazza

Why go to Florence when Northern Liberties is so close? The new Piazza at Schmidt’s is getting a lot of press, for its old world-inspired layout; assortment of cool galleries, restaurants, and stores; and drug killings. It is home to all sorts of events — live music, Phillies screenings, movies, LOCALS Only parties — and it’s a pretty cool place to stroll through every weekend, when crafters and the like sell all sorts of stuff. This Saturday, August 8th, Don Ron Books will be out in force, selling Philly Fiction and Philly Fiction 2 and soaking the summer sun. Stop by, buy us a drink, watch some NoLibs hipsters, and get your own copy of these great anthologies.

Piazza at Schmidt’s Marketplace
North Second St., at Germantown Ave
August 8th, beginning 11am.

Philly Fiction First Friday

First Fridays in Old City are one of the great modern traditions of Philadelphia. The galleries and boutiques stay open late, giving away or selling beer and wine and showing artwork of interest though perhaps mixed quality. The sidewalks are packed. Sounds from bands of musicians accompany the hum of conversation. Local artists, jewelry-makers, and clothiers hawk their wares. And tomorrow, as in months past, the publishers of Philly Fiction and Philly Fiction 2 will hit the streets to promote and discuss the books. Come find us somewhere around Second or Third streets, around Market, Arch, or Race. Great weather expected; great fiction assured.
