Bucket O’ Blood Books and Records
Logan Square’s newly opened Bucket O’ Blood Books and Records is the city’s only specialized shop of sci-fi and horror books. Shelves of paperbacks line walls decorated with medical prints akin to a Gray’s Anatomy text. The quaint shop offers an inviting atmosphere where shoppers can also peruse vinyl. The store, run by Marc Ruvolo (proprietor of local record label Johann’s Face) puts his influences on his sleeve with this venture. His DIY aspect is still as vibrant when booking events and in-stores. Don’t let the name deter you, this is exactly the store Chicago’s lit scene needs.
