A map of cool bookshops and variety stores around the country that can usually be counted on to have Blaft Publications titles in stock.
Othavadai Street, Mamallapuram
This is a much better little bookstore than you would expect to find stuck between silver jewellery and stone carving shops a few metres from the beach. Due to the heavy European stoner traffic in Mamallapuram, you can also sometimes find really weird books written in French and Danish and Estonian. There's often a pétanque game going on nearby. Walk in barefoot, else people may think you're some kind of square.
Shop. No.1, A.N. House
31st Road, lane opp. Shoppers' Stop, off Linking Road
Bandra (W), Mumbai
Would you like some kitsch-tastic accountrements to go with that superfunkadelic acccessory? Yo, have I shown you my Rajnikanth ninja pillow? Yeah, this store rocks like that.

Opposite. Jehangir Hospital,
11 Church Street, Church Street Inn, Bengaluru
A fun little hole in the wall with a good selection of new and used books. Also functions as a lending library. The perfect sort of place to hang out with a few friends and plot a revolution. The underground location may even provide some protection from drone attacks in case your whereabouts are leaked to the authorities.

Brand new store in Hyderabad. Location on map is approximate: Google can't seem to pinpoint their address. That fact taken together with their futuristic-looking logo and store design makes us wonder if they are part of some super-high-tech undergound, like Assange's team or Anonymous. Just in case, we suggest you travel in disguise and leave your RFIDs at home.
