"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 specializes in new and used science fiction, fantasy, horror, film and media books, comics, and graphic novels.

I have to give a big plug to Patrick Rothfuss's incredible charity foundation WorldBuilders .  Pat and his
amazing, dedicated staff do sales, mount actions, host contests and do whatever it takes to raise money for Heifer International. Heifer International Read More »

I have books signed by : Neil Gaiman, Patrick Rothfuss, William Alexander (he stopped by yesterday - thanks Will), Christopher Moore, Kathe Koja, John Crowley, Harry Turtledove, and just about anyone else you can think of including Isaac Asimov, Ray Bradbury, Robert Heinlein and many hundreds more.

I also just received a shipment of Studio Ghibli items including some plush toys and some really great shoulder bags.  I already had an amazing collection of art books from many of Miyazaki's movies like My Neighbor Totoro, Kiki's Delivery Service, Castle in the Sky and more.  Beautiful items, great gifts.

I've never had a larger inventory nor have I had a better one.  I hope you'll come in and support a stubborn independent bookseller.

Beige Friday

Sat, 29 Nov 2014 00:49:39 GMT

I did finally get to Philadelphia and dinner was very kindly delayed until I arrived.  A planned first course was consumed well before I arrived as an appetizer, to keep the pangs of starvation at bay.  But the turkey and fixings was grand and we had a fine dinner.

This afternoon (note: AFTER NOON) we did some shopping and William got a bunch of much-needed clothes and we stopped by Best Buy where I bought a load of DVDs at huge discounts.  I'll get to look at them when I get home.

Things are good; we'll keep it quiet and low-key.  It's good to have some time away to force me to relax.  I hope everyone has had the kind of holiday they wished for.

Next up: Festivus, I mean, Christmas.

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
