Bucket O’ Blood Books and Records is a fantastic sci fi/fantasy/horror store just off the corner of N Milwaukee and N California, owned and operated by genuine genre fans Grant & Jennifer McKee. Currently they are in danger of losing their storefront and are asking the horror community for help – from their IndieGoGo page:
Bucket O’ Blood Books & Records has been offering a wide selection of the best new and used vinyl as well as Chicago’s best selection of genre fiction for 5 years, but we will soon be without a storefront. Moving is a daunting (and expensive) task, and we’re asking for your support to help us. Our lease is up at the end of July and we have nowhere to go. We’re seeking a larger storefront that will not only house our ever-growing collection of books and records, but also give our customers a better shopping experience and allow us to host a wider variety of store events. We cannot do this without your help!
Chicagoland horror fans, we can’t let this store wither away. Whatever you can do to help, do it, right now. If you have a couple of bucks you can donate, every penny counts. If you’re flat broke, share the IndieGoGo page so that somebody else might be able to help. We need to keep Bucket O’ Blood in Chicago!
Special thanks to Kreepylady Kristin / The Chicago Creepout for the heads up!
