That's probably the route I'll end up taking. It depends on the type of con and who they get for their Dealers' Room. At Toronto Trek/Polaris, we usually had Bakka/Phoenix as our book dealer - which, as I said earlier, doesn't seem to stock the magazines any more. (Though I really should ask a friend who works there to confirm that.) Same with Ad Astra. However, Polaris is no more, and Ad Astra was a few months ago. The next con in these parts (not counting the pro shows, which don't generally have booksellers in their Dealers' Rooms anyway) isn't until November, and I didn't have any travel plans until Dragoncon at Labour Day. I've actually been avoiding buying an e-reader, because I learned from the VHS/Beta and Blu Ray/HD DVD wars not to jump on one technology until it all shakes out and there are only one or two left standing. (Chapters/Indigo has one they sell called Kobo, and they sell a lot of e-books in that format. But I have no idea whether I'd be able to get a book in that format if, for example, I was in Atlanta and saw a book I wanted.) That said, I know that there's a free online Kindle reader (I use one at work for a reference book they ordered for me), so that's certainly a possible fallback - thanks for the heads-up. That's what they say, but I'm not holding my breath. They've been talking about this for years - it was supposed to be built something like 15 years ago, but the premier of Ontario at the time, Mike Harris, cancelled all but one of the new lines that were going to built (and had shovels already in the ground).
