Uncle Hugo's Science Fiction Bookstore

Minneapolis is privileged to have the oldest Science Fiction specialty bookstore in the United States—Uncle Hugo's. Owner Don Blyly has since branched out, and in the current physical store Uncle Edgar's Mystery Bookstore occupies the rear portion of the building.

This is Uncle Hugo's first gentle step into having a web presence (there's recently been some talk about significantly extending it, perhaps to include direct web ordering and a direct tie to the store's database of titles in stock). The main goal was to make the newsletter, which Don has been publishing regularly on paper for years, available to more people, and give people an easy way to check upcoming events at the store. In addition, Don hoped to perhaps cut the cost of the newsletter by having some people choose to receive notification of it electronically and not receive a paper copy.

You can view the current Uncle Hugo's site live on the net here.

I worked on this project with Bill Christ and Rebecca Chesin. We all contributed to the site architecture and design; I did most of the server-specific things and Bill did some very nice Java applications to help Don maintain the content on the site. Rebecca is primarily responsible for the appearance and function of the navigation bar. Oh, and the photo is mine; not even taken specifically for the site, I had a copy in my files already.

Starting with "homepage", you can go walk through the site using the navigation buttons to the left.
