Found In Our Free Bin

In our free bins in the front of Atomic Books, we frequently distribute all kinds of items people send us - from zines and mini comics to newspapers, books, CDs, cassette tapes, t-shirts and more.

Sometimes, things find their way into the bin, and we don't know where they came from. That's just part of the magic and fun of the free bin.

Such is the case of an unopened padded envelope with cancelled postage and a crossed out shipping address that we could tell was full of publications. So opened the envelope and inside we found an array of awesome publications from Mud Luscious Press.

I started thumbing through a magical novella called I Am A Very Productive Entrepreneur by Mathias Svalina.

It's a series of stories that all start with the line "I started this business once...".

My favorite section is:
I started this business once that retrofit memories to include pilot lights.
Thereafter the memories stay lit, even when you are away on vacation. Even when you are sleeping on the cold, dry marble. Even when your loved one has been dead for so long that the junk mail in his name has stopped arriving in the mailbox.
Thanks, Mud Luscious Press! However your publications found their way into our free bin, they made our night!
