Author opens bookstore, stocks only one title.

Andrew Kessler, the author of “Martian Summer: Robot Arms, Cowboy Spacemen, and My 90 Days with the Phoenix Mars Mission” was worried that since he was a new author, unknown and scandal-free that his book might not get the promotion and shelf space he felt that it deserved. So he opened his own bookstore and only stocked his book, 3,000 copies of it.

He even put up little signs to direct you to “New in Non-Fiction”, “science” or whatever other section of the store you might need a hand finding.
