Copper Dragon Books (King seller) Disappeared

Post by classicalsteve » Fri Feb 05, 2010 1:09 pm

Anyone know what happened to Copper Dragon Books in Oakland, CA, owned by Mark Anderson? He used to sell a lot of Stephen King. His phone is disconnected and his listings have disappeared. He has often been a vendor at the SF Book Fair (happening this weekend) but he is not listed this year.
thanks.

He probably went bust. His books were always priced at the higher end of the market, and these sellers cannot compete with ebay prices.

Many more booksellers will go bust this year if that is their only source of income. The most famous Stephen King bookshop, Betts, no longer exists as a shop and is shutdown. Stu had to sell it because he was losing money, and it now only exists as an internet shop.
