"The Tooth Fairy left the name DreamHaven Books
under my pillow. Usually it's a 25-cent piece;
but given the current value of the U.S. dollar,
the value of this tip was far more glorious.
DreamHaven is a book-seeker's cave of miracles."

- Harlan Ellison

Do Over

Tue, 02 Feb 2016 18:37:38 GMT

I'm just going to re-post what I said in my last post.  It still holds true.

 "It looks like it's going to be a Maytag Repaiman sort of day.  Snow last night and it just started snowing again.  Dreary and cold.  I'm just going to sit here and mark down book prices......."

But I will add that Lois McMaster Bujold will be here tomorrow night at 6:30 to read from and sign copies of her new book - Gentle Jole and the Red Queen (Baen 2016 - $27.00).

Cheers.      Greg

Maytag Repairman Day

It looks like it's going to be a Maytag Repaiman sort of day.  Snow last night and it just started snowing again.  Dreary and cold.  I'm just going to sit here and mark down book prices.......

We Have TOO MANY BOOKS LEFT!

Sat, 26 Dec 2015 17:53:53 GMT

Well, the Christmas rush is over and now we get back to regular business.  This year a bit slower than many in years past but I did manage to keep things about even by doing a lot of eBay sales and more online book sales than usual.  I'm going to try to continue that trend but in the meantime, we have TOO MANY BOOKS LEFT here in the store.  I don't have   a specific plan yet for how to get rid of more books except to say that I will be marking things down and I hope you all will take advantage of some tremendous deals.  As Melvin McCosh, a somewhat (in)famous local bookseller used to say "You need these books more than I do".

Creature From the Black Lagoon

DreamHaven Books is proud to announce the first US publication of the novelization of the 1954 classic film, Creature From the Black Lagoon. Written by Vargo Statten (John Russell Fearn) in 1954, this book was published only in the UK and has become fantastically scarce, with original copies selling for as much as $6000. We are now offering an enhanced version of the original novel at a very affordable price.

The book will contain the original novel but we have added some new items:

- Stills from the film.
- A new introduction by David Schow.
- A new cover by Bob Eggleton.


Trade Paperback $20.00
Hardcover (Limited to 750 copies) $50.00
Limited Edition Hardcover (Limited to only 250 copies) - SIGNED by Ricou Browning (the original Creature actor) and Julie (Julia) Adams, star of the film. $125.00
