Chapters has been taken over by Indigo (, a smaller but similar chain that had a rich couple behind it. Neither is ideal, but for Americans either web site (or whichever is there when the merger is done) is worth checking if you're looking for British imports. We have the best of both worlds here, usually staying current with American and British releases even when they have to wait on the other. No Exit books are not unusual, for example.
