Sad day for Embiggen 

As you might have heard, Embiggen Books is closing down on June 22. Embiggen has been a perennial presence on skeptical bookshelves and at Skeptics conventions from their beginnings on Queensland's Sunshine Coast to their more recent presence in Melbourne. Refusing to stock pseudoscience, they have promoted science and skepticism relentlessly, but the trials of the book trade and publishing in general have finally caught up. So, send Embiggen off with pride and at least a little cash in the pocket - go down to 197 Lt Lonsdale Street in the middle of Melbourne and buy a boxload.
