This is a specialist website, selling real books of the genre Weird Fiction (early Horror, Fantasy and Science Fiction) as well as Pulp fiction, Graphic Novels and Graphic Comics
This website is quite new and we still have hundreds, if not, thousands of books in stock and waiting to be uploaded so please keep checking back as we grow.
John, the owner, has been an avid collector of weird fiction and similar genres, all his life (he has a whole room full of his own books at home) and has always been interested in weird fiction. Now he wants to share a lifetime of knowledge with you, so look out for featured books and general information on our blog, in the future.
As booksellers, we have quite a bit of experience: We opened our first shop, Red Books in 2006 and our second one, Imagine Books in 2010. Red Books specialised in 'read books' (second hand books) mostly of the Weird Fiction genre, as well as Military, History and many other subjects. Imagine Books (run by Ann, John's partner) specialised in Esoteric books and local history.
We have had a successful online book-selling presence for over ten years now, with accounts on Amazon and Abe Books (called The Real Book Shop). With ever-improving e-shop facilities, we have now been able to set up this website, Weird Fiction in the way we think book-selling websites should be:
- Selling real books at sensible prices
- With specialist subject, collections and Antiquarian books
- Easily navigable with books in logical sections, for enjoyable browsing
- Sensible postage prices, linked to the weight of your order
- Just like a traditional High Street Bookshop, but online
- Straightforward basket and safe payment with Paypal (no Paypal account needed) or Shopify's own safe portal
- Postage by Royal Mail, providing the most convenient postal service for you, the customer.
So we hope you enjoy this ever-growing website, and buy lots of books!
