This news goes way beyond sad.

Whatever takes Shaman Drum's place on State Street (a Quizno's? a Subway?) will get zero business for me.

I am so depressed.

Even I went there a few time and I've only been to Ann Arbor a handful of times. It was a great store, and I am pretty upset.

That is so sad! One of my best jobs was working as a part-time employee in the upstairs of Shaman Drum. There is just something about that store that just made me happy...

Definitely going to go visit when I visit Michigan next week.

This is a sad day for Ann Arbor, and for book lovers.

First GM, now Shaman Drum. It's like God is smiting Michigan for our carbon footprint and interest in literature!

Anybody wants to make a group field trip out to the Drum, do let me know. I understand that everything (sigh) is 25% off.

  • Isak is a space to celebrate tales and truth in the curious, joyful way embodied by the writer for which it is named. The name "Isak," after all, means "laughter," as she was fond of pointing out.

    By tales, I mean fiction (especially short fiction), as well as other literary and artistic narratives. By truth, I mean the world in which we live. I especially have my eye on creative social justice.
