With space on the library shelves scarce, the characters of your most beloved genres are banding together into gangs to secure their books' places - and their lives.
The little town of Stonewood sits in the forested hills of East Tennessee. Like most towns, it has a public library, and like in most libraries, a strange and entirely invisible war rages.
Gangs centered around major book genres battle one another for space on the shelves. The more books in their area, the better the chance of their own novel being read. Readership determines life or death, so it's every genre for itself.
But if survival alone wasn't enough, genre rivalries and biases leave some gangs not only fighting for shelf space but pushing their own agendas as well - even within their own groups.
Welcome to Shelf Space. Let the war resume.
of the month
Jan. 1 Welcome to 2018! This month's newsletter is short and sweet, but don't let that stop you from reading it.
No special event this month, so let's really use this time to further our gang sub-plots!
" Nothing brings you together like a common enemy.”

This is where you'll make all your claims in one go! Make sure you check the face claims and literary claims beforehand.
Be sure to post in this thread using the [code] tags!
Below are the codes you'll need for each of the three claims along with specific information you may need to know. Please read any information pertinent to your claims. Also, for your convenience, we've listed what URLs you'll need for each kind of claim.
Reserves last 2 weeks for applications and 2 months for want ads.
Do not list book titles with "A", "An", or "The". Add those at the end, as such: Tale of Two Cities, A.
Claiming an actor's face from the current decade: not required to list a year.
Claiming a face from previous decades: list this in your claim. (Example: Ralph Macchio (1980s) is claimed, but Ralph Macchio from 2010 is available.)
Comic book characters must have animated face claims. No other group is allowed to have animated claims. CRUCIAL! Read the 5th practical FAQ character question about how comic book characters are perceived in the library and how this affects your claims and posts.
Claiming an animated face: depends on how many alternate universes exist for this character. If applicable, you'll need to claim the universe/version you are taking. You'll find the specific codes in the claiming thread.
To claim a creature: Animated or otherwise, give the name of the show or movie you took the image from.
