One of the UK's leading specialist SFF book shops comes under cyber attack.

News from Laurence over at the Andromeda bookshop - their business is still running fine (and have been for the last two and a half years) but their website is having problems at the moment ... their hosting site is currently fighting of a "Denial of Service" attack which means that access can be very difficult ... this is a malicious attack caused by somebody with a grudge against their hosts and should be sorted out in the next few days.
