'NOW HEAR THIS...!!! The Phantom Bookshop is no Hunchback. It is, rather, the equivalent of Dracula saying "I bid you Velcome," or The Mummy going for a 'little walk." Or Baron von Frankenstein shouting, "It's alive!" Or King Kong falling off The Empire State Building and landing squarely, happily on us! Roll 'em all together and you got The Phantom Bookshop! Do you read me?--' Ray Bradbury, 1995.
