Following close on the heels of the announcement that Mainspring is ceasing its book publishing operation, comes this:

Sad news indeed.

That's terrible, and sad news. :(

Oh no. Even though the internet has provided us with an avenue to access so much information, there is nothing like sitting down with a book. :(

I feel fortunate that I was able to buy pretty much all of the books mainspring published over the years. What a shame that the remaining stock was destroyed.

A tragic thing. I saw pictures of the mess. So sad. And I agree with others that are sad about the loss of the books. I don't find online reading to be a very good replacement for an actual book. At least the information will still be there in one form or another. But, this is the end of an era and a great loss to the hobby.

It’s sad, all we have left is Mulholland Press.

I think interest in the hobby has been dwindling down for years. It’s sad.
