DreamHaven Books – Minneapolis’ haven for sci-fi, fantasy & horror


DreamHaven Books: selling books since 1977

We’d like to tell you about a little bookshop in Minneapolis with a big heart. DreamHaven Books specializes in new and used science fiction, fantasy, horror, film books, comics, and graphic novels, and it’s been serving customers since 1977.

Last week, owner Greg Ketter and an employee were attacked and robbed as they closed up the bookstore. Greg lost his wallet and the day’s cash. Both were beaten and bruised, and they were probably thinking that 2020 just couldn’t get much worse.

Well, they breed tough booksellers in Minnesota and DreamHaven Books didn’t miss a beat.

“We’re healing up just fine,” said Greg. “I don’t heal as quickly as I did when I was young but things look pretty good.”

We’d like to lend a little support by telling you a bit more about this bookshop.

Firstly, you will find DreamHaven at 2301 E. 38th St. Minneapolis, MN 55407. They are open Monday through Saturday, 12 noon to 6pm.

Secondly, they offer an eclectic selection of books, ranging from scarce vintage paperbacks to some highly collectible horror and fantasy books, and signed limited editions.

Published in 1967 by Arkham House, this is collection of fantasy stories

They offer an extensive selection of horror and weird fiction published by Arkham House. Arkham will always be famous for printing the work of H.P. Lovecraft – the king of weird fiction. Memorable bindings and limited print runs mean that books from this publisher are loved by collectors of supernatural fiction.

There’s a handful of books by Alan Dean Foster, who is well known for his fantasy and science fiction, and novelizations of film scripts. He’s written books for the Star Wars, Star Trek, Alien, and Transformers universes.

William Boyd was one of the first Western adventure TV stars

DreamHaven’s Hopalong Cassidy books caught our eye. They’re Doubleday Western editions with Louis L’Amour writing as by Tex Burns. William Boyd is pictured on the cover. Boyd famously played Cassidy in the long-running NBC TV show.
