Since 1997, you’ve been coming to BarnesandNoble.com to discuss everything from Stephen King to writing to Harry Potter. You’ve made our site more than a place to discover your next book: you’ve made it a community. But like all things internet, BN.com is growing and changing. We've said goodbye to our community message boards—but that doesn’t mean we won’t still be a place for adventurous readers to connect and discover.

Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

About Literary Ventures Fund

[ Edited ]
The Literary Ventures Fund, a first-of-its-kind, not-for-profit private foundation, serves as a "partner-in-risk" providing supplementary support to literary authors and publishers. It does so by offering them the foundation’s resources and publishing ties to bookstores, media outlets, and publicity assistance, as well as innovative marketing and sales programs, and direct cash investments, if warranted. LVF lends its support to ensure that exceptional works of fiction, literary non-fiction, and poetry with a potential for wide readership reach the broadest possible readership and remain in print for years to come. LVF also presents public programs that generate discussion about the broader literary landscape, the role of publishing in serving literary writers, and how more readers can become engaged with literature.

Re: About Literary Ventures Fund

I was interested to know if the LVF makes printing of larger printings possible?

I had a difficult time finding copies of THE FIRES in the smaller bookstores in my community.

after several attempts, I did find ONE copy at a nearby B&N but it was the only one on the shelf. (I felt kind of guilty taking the only one.)

And my local library did not have a copy either.

I'm wondering if other readers also had a difficult time finding copies. That may explain why there aren't many readers sharing their thoughts.

Which is unfortunate, if that's the case, because the novellas are amazingly well-written.
