As you’ll know, Borders UK have been in administration for the last 18 months. They still owe me £400 for stock provided AND SOLD at book signing events. But got a letter this week saying that the administration period is now over and the courts say no one else has to be paid. B*stards! I’ll never see a dime, nickle or bad penny from it. The end. I feel rage. Still, you gotta feel sorry for all the staff that lost jobs in the debacle. The real blame has to lie with the stupid American retail-park business model they had… and the poor British management of the stores. Ho hum. Come on Waterstone’s! You are the last plank of British civilization. Dig deep, guys! You can’t leave us with just WHSmith! Nooooo!
a big boo and bye bye to borders
