FACT: The excerpt from Neal Pollack’s new book in last week’s Stranger—about becoming a responsible pot-smoking father by buying a vaporizer called the Silver Surfer—has apparently created a run on Silver Surfers. Today I got a letter from Tina, the sister of the Silver Surfer’s creator.
We have got tons of orders from the Seattle area and one customer said it was probably because of this article. First, I want to thank you all for publishing the article but would also like contact info for Neal Pollack as I want to especially thank him as well…
Well, you’re welcome Tina. Least we could do. If you’d like to send along a Silver Surfer to the office, our address is 1535 11th Avenue, 3rd Floor, Seattle, 98122.
