Eau de Livres, Rare Books

Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451 is quoted in an article from Shelf Awareness on the smell of books! With the growth of e-books, it is only a matter of time before book smell is gone forever, like the sound of the typing pool. Read more about some of the less obvious aspects of book odour in the fascinating artcle, here.

Horrorgy, a blog run by internet book dealers Horror Mall, has published a full list of the chapbooks published by Roy A. Squires. These slender volumes, often hand-finished, featured many fantasy and horror writers between 1962 and 1979. Bradbury was published several times. See the full list here.
