Visit the rooms of the bookshop
Welcome to the Stage
Behind Leiden's Room, in the back of the store, is Meara's Room, which houses an expansive selection of fiction as well as some Puzzle Books and a few spillover Toys.
Right away, you'll notice eight shelves of Mystery & Thriller books of all varieties and eras. In the alcove to your right, you'll find Science Fiction & Fantasy as well as Horror. In the back of the room you'll find our piano in the middle of the shelves that contain Humor and Historical Fiction.
Horror includes classics such as the ghost stories of M. R. James and the works of H. P. Lovecraft, as well as contemporary works from Clive Barker to Dean Koontz. To feed your fanship, there are plenty of zombies, vampires, and werewolves on offer.
Science Fiction and Fantasy. We carry a variety of recent and classic authors, but fans of any sub-genre will find something here, whether they be fans of the comic fantasy, the traditional fantasy epic, the sociological commentary, the cyperpunk, the apocalypse, the idea story, the cyclical legend, the fantastical adventure story...
We welcome guests to enjoy the use of our piano, but we do have three absolutely set-in-stone rules:
- Do not put cups on the wood.
- Be respectful of other guests in the store - loud and dissonant playing, banging on the keys, etc. are not acceptable.
- Under no circumstances may you play "Chopsticks," "Heart and Soul," or "Fur Elise." If the guitar is out, no "Stairway to Heaven" or "Freebird." Thank you.
