"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

DreamHaven's Big 37th Anniversary SALE
Saturday, April 12  Noon - 6:30

Big markdowns on Used Hardcover Fiction, Graphic Novels, and much more.  I opened my first store
on April 1, 1977 in St. Paul and grew and expanded until I went SuperNova and contracted to the
size I am now.  The store had been doing quite well up until Christmas 2013 and then the winter

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.

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
