What’s in the Shop Window?

We aim to keep our shop displays interesting and changing. In the same way as we feature eclectic selections of themed books in our windows and on our front table, this page brings the same kind of curation to our website shop.


A signed copy makes a great gift.

Signed copies and special editions

We often have extra signed copies after author visits to the shop. And we have good contacts with publishers who sometimes supply us with signed copies. There are limited supplies of these books so available can change quickly.

Science Fiction in the 21st Century

Out of This World

Science Fiction has so often been overlooked or actively consigned to the ‘pulp fiction’ scrap heap by the critics and the literary establishment. Yet it is a field that has constantly produced some of the most l thoughtful original and lastingly relevant writing across the years.
This is a personal selection of some great science fiction novels published over the last ten years or so, together with one or two ground breaking books from times past.
