Banned Book Week a Success!

I”d like to thank everyone who came by the shop during Banned Book Week and allowed us to litter their fragile minds with great banned reads! Censorship is not good in any form and infringes on the individual’s rights to make their own choices. In the meantime, read some banned books year round and pass them on.

Mycroft Holmes by Kareem Abdul-Jabar and Anna Waterhouse Out 9/25.

If you are a Holmes fan, then you know of his brother Mycroft. But, how much do you know? Here lies a tale of a young Mycroft and events that made him the man he was.

Holmesians rejoice, MYCROFT HOLMES by the incredible NBA legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Anna Waterhouse, is out today!

Fresh out of Cambridge University, the young Mycroft Holmes is already making a name​ ​for himself in government, working for the Secretary of State for War. Yet this most British of civil servants has strong ties to the faraway island of Trinidad, the birthplace of his best friend, Cyrus Douglas, a man of African descent, and where his fiancĂ©e Georgiana Sutton was raised.

Mycroft’s comfortable existence is overturned when Douglas receives troubling reports​ from home. There are rumors of mysterious disappearances, strange footprints in the sand, and spirits enticing children to their deaths, their bodies found drained of blood. Upon hearing the news, Georgiana abruptly departs for Trinidad. Near panic, Mycroft convinces Douglas that they should follow her, drawing the two men into a web of dark secrets that grows more treacherous with each step they take...

Written by NBA superstar Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and screenwriter Anna Waterhouse, Mycroft Holmes reveals the untold story of Sherlock’s older brother. This harrowing adventure changed his life, and set the​ stage for the man Mycroft would become: founder of the famous Diogenes Club and the hidden power behind the British government.

Force Friday at A Galaxy Called Dallas

Even big box stores got first dibs on all things Star Wars, that didn’t leave us out. All holiday weekend we will host a sale on all things Star Wars. You can read the details about it on our Facebook Event page. Suffice it to say, we’ve got some pretty good deals on all Star Wars merchandise and it will run until close of business Monday evening.

Since we weren’t given the opportunity to purchase like the big boxes, we still get to place orders today. I’m giving you a link to the Diamond Star Wars VII catalog and all you have to do is tell us what you want. You can download this handy Star Wars VII order form to help you in your decision making process.

Now, I’m gonna warn you. As smoothly as we try to make this, there will be plenty of delays, snafus, hang-ups and other problems along the way. The sooner the orders get put in, the sooner we can get product and I’m going to place some orders for things that I know will sell, but if you want to make sure you get what you want, you’ll need to get those orders to us quickly. If we don’t get them in fast enough, items will get allocated which means we may get all, some, or none at all. And that’s not to convince you not to try and order, but it’s nice to be prepared.

So with that being said, let us know what you want and we’ll make sure it gets into A Galaxy Called Dallas! Call or email us.
