"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

Rude Surprise

Thu, 13 Nov 2014 03:20:37 GMT

I just got back after a week trip out to Washington DC for the 40th World Fantasy Convention.  I had a great time, didn't sell too many books, didn't buy too many either, packed up and headed home.  I looked at a newspaper on Monday morning at breakfast and saw the headline "Wintry Weather Blankets Midwest" and saw that Minneapolis had or would have 10 inches of snow and freezing cold.  Well, Minneapolis did get about 3 or four inches of snow but up where I live, north of the Twin Cities, we got over 10 inches of snow.  I tried to gun the van into my driveway and got stuck.  After and hour and a half of shoveling,  and blowing the snow away, I got the driveway cleared and the van in the garage.  Shades of 1991 when we got over 2 feet of ...

Happy Halloween / Patrick Rothfuss / Neil Gaiman

Fri, 31 Oct 2014 17:51:29 GMT

I'm rarely home around Halloween but I am here this year.  I'll be at the store between 4 and 7pm tonight giving out some treats.  I'll be heading off to the World Fantasy Convention in Washington D.C. in a few days and then WindyCon just after that.  Then on to Philadelphia for Thanksgiving with my wife, son and some of Lisa's relatives.

Somewhere in the midst of all this travel I will be getting books signed by Neil Gaiman as well as Patrick Rothfuss.  Pat's new book, a novella (150 pages) called,  The Slow Regard of Silent Things is an odd book.  Patrick even warns people this book might not be for them, in a very frank foreword.  It's a sort-of character study of Auri, the girl who lives in the Underthing, below the ...

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
