"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

I'm in the middle of one of the biggest lulls I've had in a long time.  I don't have any conventions, bookfairs, or other events until Lisa and I leave for the UK in August to take a week holiday and then attend the World Science Fiction convention in London.  I am selling at the WorldCon but it should be a lot of fun, nonetheless.

Last Sunday we finished the last event we had planned; William's combination Eagle Scout Court-of-Honor and Graduation Party.  They were both great successes.  Over 50 people attended the ceremony, which was just the right mix of serious and silly, and none too long.  He's an official Eagle Scout and has a letter from the President to prove it (I have mine from Richard Nixon somewhere around the house - ...

I just attended the 24th annual Book Fair at the Minnesota State Fair Grounds this past weekend, and it was a sad affair.  The number of book dealers keeps dwindling as do the attendees.  I'm not sure which is dropping faster.  Sales were mediocre but what distressed me even more than the lack of sales was the seeming lack of enthusiasm over the books.  I remember the first few book fairs and people lined up around the block before the opening night.  There were near fist-fights with rabid book seekers trying to get in as early as they could.  There was a real passion for books and a desire to acquire them.  That's all gone now.

There were some pleasant talks with fans of books and I sold some unusual items (I call some of the ... Read More »

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
