Imagine that you're stuck in the West End, searching desperately for some reading material for the tube ride home. Perhaps the four minutes of entertainment that the free newspapers provide will account for only a tiny fraction of your journey. Perhaps you're afraid that perusing Loaded in public will destroy your sensitive metrosexual image. Perhaps you're burned out on Patrick O'Brien, or you've read all the Harlequin titles. You're thinking to yourself, if only I could find a story where the men are men, the sheep are scared, the weaponry is described in minute detail and the women…well, they're waiting at home and that's boring, so we don't need to fiddle around describing that.

Forbidden Planet can help.

Down the stairs, to the left.

It's helped that I already happened to be thinking about beautifully laid out racks when I read the post. :)

Men with overdeveloped pectoral muscles often have them, yes.

Well, there is a book called "Macho Women with Guns". A good read from my memories of it.

I think we need to submit that genre type to the suggestion box.

It's one of those magazines you buy for the pictures. That's how I feel about most magazines anyway. Articles, pfft.

You could probably make a decent living off of it. See belasco's suggestion above.

Shaftesbury Avenue just isn't the seedy Dickensian cesspit that it used to be.

Seeing as the first two shelves are devoted exclusively to one author, I have the feeling it's a bit of a niche market.

What do you suppose James Axler did before he became a writer?

*snorts* What a riot. Did someone hand-stencil it?

Nope, I think it was printed the same way all the other signs in the store were.
