All right reserved. For years we have been supporting Martin de Porres House of Hospitality with book donations. Martin's is a grass roots organization in the Mission district that serves free meals to the needy daily. They are completely independent and receive no support from the city -- it's a straight forward program of giving meals to the hungry without any obligation on the guest's part.
Volunteers are needed to work for a few hours once a week or even only once a month preparing and serving meals. You would be working with a great group of people and have an opportunity to make a real and immediate difference to the lives of the City's homeless. If you're interested, please call and ask to speak with Jim or Charlie. Congrats to Chris and thanks to all of you who voted for him. Notice that it won in the General Fiction category -- interesting!

Once again the year comes 'round and it's Borderlands Anniversary.
Every November I have a hard time imagining that another year has passed.
DISPATCHES FROM THE BORDER
It seems like the last anniversary was only a few months ago. Nine times I've thought that now and I'll no doubt continue to think that 'till I run out of years. Days seemed to pass slower back then. Still, I've spent the past nine years working harder and faster than I ever did before. Perhaps that's why the days seem to move so much more quickly.
I use it often and almost never think what it means -- spend is what we do with money. I'm informed by the OED that it comes from the Latin "expendere" -- 'to pay out'. That suits, really. After all, I'm spending the currency of my life, possibly the most valuable thing I own excepting my old, tarnished but still serviceable honor. So, for the past nine years I've been using up one of my most valuable possessions in return for the chance to run Borderlands. I've never made a better exchange in my life.
Thank you all - my customers, staff, friends, family and everyone else in Borderlands' extended network of publishers, authors, artists, and others - for letting me spend the past nine years having the time of my life. I'll hope to spend at least nine more doing the same. Warmest Regards, Alan.
For the next twelve months we'll be doing a special feature each month in honor of Borderlands' upcoming 10th Anniversary November 3rd, We'll share some stories about what Borderlands is and how it got that way. Captain Jack's Tale Captain Jack's was the funky used clothing store that occupied Valencia Street from until The store's owner, a Mr.
Hale, was also operating a massage therapy studio in the back of the store. Conveniently, Mr. Hale was looking for someone to take over his lease. He'd had enough of the used clothing business, he told us, and wanted to move to the Santa Monica beach, live in his van, and become a stand-up comedian. Hale was uninterested in the used clothing inventory he was leaving and just wanted to go. So Borderlands took over the lease and began excavating 7 years worth of used clothes in preparation for turning the place into a bookstore.
A frantic month of progressive mark-down sales and kind-intentioned booksellers who had never in their lives sold clothes lying through their teeth to shoppers, "Does this look good on me? Finally, all of the old suits and the cool Che Guevara t-shirts and the feather boas and the fearsome 70's polyester cut-to-the-navel shirts and the size 12 high heels and especially the lime-green-and-aqua-polka-dotted monstrosities were sold, or given away, or snuck into customers' bags when they weren't looking. The booksellers breathed a collective sigh of relief, and then got a good look at the place.
Interior decoration had not been of vital importance to Captain Jack's, and now that the walls were no longer festooned floor to ceiling with sparkly 20's ball gowns, we noticed that the walls and ceiling were Pepto Bismol pink, the trim was forest green, and the year-old wood floor was painted dried-blood red. Three eye-catching colors, surely, but also colors that were never intended to be within 50 yards of each other.
But the paint was the least of our worries. The basement was packed with old furniture, unidentifiable Things, disused Nordic Tracks and also a creepy little room that, judging from the used Q-tips on the floor, had been someone's home for a time. There was a seven-foot-tall by four-foot-wide mound of moldering blue jeans in the basement, like a nest for the now-extinct Levisaurus, as well as enough centipedes and other things with too many legs to fill a China Mieville novel with some left over for the next Indiana Jones movie. Did I mention that the basement was not a nice place to be?
Anyway, we cleaned and we cleared and we took continual trips to the dump and didn't scream when the centipedes dropped on the backs of our necks from the ceiling. Well, not much, anyway.
