I decided to stop by this bookstore on a Sunday on a whim, and I'm glad I did. As suggested by the great name of this store, their specialty is science fiction, mystery, fantasy, adventure books. Authors like Ray Bradbury have special events/signing at this shop. The bookstore has an aged/antique/homey feel to it which makes it a great place to just hang out and read the books. You'll usually see the owner with his big dog (usually dosing off..the dog that is) which adds to the homey feel. They also have a lot of older VHS tapes. I was able to find an old Ramona tv show VHS tape (the one with a young Sarah Polley) for only $5. Such a great find as I hadn't seen that show in ages!

This is an avid bookreader's dream come true! If you're ever looking for a book that's out of print, then sulk no more! This little innocent book store heaven has saved my google searching fingers from carpal tunel twice already -- and always with a smile on their faces. If you like good books and efficient service, this is the place for you.

PROS: organization, friendly atmosphere, and knowledgable staff
CONS: none

I have only one experience here, but it was really fantastic. I found almost every single Maj Sjowall and Per Wahloo mystery -- 8 out of 10 of the Martin Beck mysteries, in stock. (I read one, was hooked, could not find a single book in Pasadena, and this place had 8). And the woman working there knew everything about the books (a planned series, very, very clever mysteries, with thoughtful social commentary interwoven. Why hasn't BBC made these books into a season-long miniseries?)
