Great Bookstores: White Dwarf Books in Vancouver

Eileen Kernaghan wrote in to let us know about one of her favorite bookstores: White Dwarf Books in Vancouver. You can find White Dwarf Books at 3715 West Tenth Ave, Vancouver, B.C., V6R 2G5 Canada, Phone: 604-228-8223, Email: whitedwarf@deadwrite.com.

Eileen Kernaghan (pictured above at a book launch at White Dwarf Books) says:

“For over thirty years White Dwarf Books on Vancouver B.C.’s west side has been a favourite  gathering place for readers — and writers — of SF and fantasy.

Jill Sanagan and Walter Sinclair have hosted countless readings and book launches, by local writers and by international SF stars. Their knowledge of the SF/fantasy field is legendary, and they’re always ready to recommend a new or lesser known author in your special area of interest. They fill mail orders worldwide from the huge selection on their shelves, and they’ll find you that elusive title the big box bookstores have never heard of.

KAT HOOPER, who started this site in June 2007, earned a Ph.D. in neuroscience and psychology at Indiana University (Bloomington) and now teaches at the University of North Florida. When she reads fiction, she wants to encounter new ideas and lots of imagination. She wants to view the world in a different way. She wants to have her mind blown. She loves beautiful language and has no patience for dull prose, vapid romance, or cheesy dialogue. She prefers complex characterization, intriguing plots, and plenty of action. Favorite authors are Jack Vance, Robin Hobb, Kage Baker, William Gibson, Gene Wolfe, Richard Matheson, and C.S. Lewis.

  1. I just love that picture–I don’t know why bookshelves can look colorful and welcoming, but somehow they do.
