New York SF
Mostly consists of Star Wars, Star Trek, The Lord Of The Rings and other such merchandise (less Harry Potter than you might think, tho'), but there are some worthy SF outlets hither and yon...
- Midtown Comics (40th St and 7th Av, I think) has quite a fun collection of SF-related figurines - some of the 'Sandman' comics-related ones are quite something to behold - although their moderately interesting SF books collection has been reduced somewhat to make way for more, ahem, adult fare. Still worth a look.
- Barnes And Noble (all boroughs) The original from which the wiki's ISBN checks are derived, and generally not bad at all. Comparable with Waterstones' or Blackwells' in quality of stock, although there's a disappointing amount of, well, American self-improvement tat. On the other hand, those who live on Manhattan can order something from the website and get it delivered within 24 hours! Beat that, Amazon.
- Jim Hanley's Universe (33rd Street and 5th Av) The variety of stuff done here, although inclined mostly to comics, is incredible. And, unlike all other stores I've been in in Manhattan, this one does sell DWM!
- St Mark's Comics (St Mark's Place/8th St and 3rd Av) Plain weird, but good fun in inimitable East Village style.
- Sidewalk Bookstalls (Broadway, 111th St-116th St) Arthur C Clarke and other quality SF novels second-hand at a couple of bucks a go? You heard it here first.
- (cyberspatial) New York Review of Science Fiction <http://ebbs.english.vt.edu/olp/nyrsf/nyrsf.html> Could be worth a look.
- Forbidden Planet (nr E 14th St and Broadway) Mostly comic-strip-related stuff here, and an awful lot of Merchandise, but worth a look.
New York Index Indices are not categories; if you want, by all means create a Category New York and use that, but this link as it stands seems somehow wrong. I thought it to be a mirror of the rather sporadic Oxford Index... however, if it's messing up your assiduous system of catalogues, feel free to correct it. --TL The idea of having a New York Index is an excellent one, but the point of an index is that it's a list of links to things, so you don't need to tag the target pages. It's the inverse of a category, if you see what i mean.
