Loompanics Going Out of Business

Mike Hoy's Loompanics Unlimited, seller of unusual and controversial books for over 30 years, is going out of business--everything is 50% off. It's a sad day, but fortunately most of these books are now easier to obtain than ever. (Hat tip to Patri Friedman at Catallarchy--I haven't received the catalogs for many years.)

First R.W., and now this?


You're right, though. The fact that publishing and distribution of books are cheaper than ever--not to mention the fact that virtually anything you need is online somewhere--means that Loompanics has kinda become irrelevant, anyway.

Seen from that perspective, maybe Loompanics' going under should be considered a good thing.
