Guillermo del Toro Calls Upon Horror Lovers to Help Dark Delicacies in LA

Dark Delicacies has been an independant all-horror books and gift shop in Los Angeles since 1994. Owned and operated by husband and wife Del and Sue Howison, the one-of-a-kind store needs your help, as Guillermo del Toro just drew our attention to.

The shop needs to move locations due to the skyrocketing rent in their Burbank neighborhood, and a pretty perfect option presented itself in a possible new location.

More than just a bookshop, the location has played host to numerous in-store events (like autographis, fan-gatherings and more) over the years, and they’re not ready to call it quits with their brick-and-mortar just shy of their 25th anniversary.

You can read Del’s post on the official GoFundMe account set up for Dark Delicacies here.

About Mary Anne Butler

Bleeding Cool News Editor Mary Anne Butler (Mab, for short) has been part of the fast-paced world of journalism since she was 15, getting her start in album reviews and live concert coverage for a nationally published (print) music magazine. She eventually transitioned to online media, writing for such sites as UGO/IGN, ComicsOnline, Geek Magazine, Ace of Geeks, Aggressive Comix (where she is still Editor-in-Chief), and most recently Bleeding Cool.

Over the past 10 years, she’s built a presence at conventions across the globe as a cosplayer (occasionally), photographer (constantly), panelist and moderator (mostly), and reporter (always). 

Interviews, reviews, observations, breaking news, and objective reporting are the name of the game for the founder of Harkonnen Knife Fight, a Dune-themed band with an international presence. 

Though she be but little, she is fierce. #MabTheProfessional
