Summary
Bookstores are the greatest places on earth, yet there’s never been an anthology devoted just to them. Here are sixteen science fiction, fantasy, and horror stories—all but two original to this anthology—each of which includes a bookstore at its core. Whether seen as enchanting repositories for the magic of books—welcoming nexuses of power for those who read—or reflecting the dark dangers that may lurk where such magic lies, these are stories that are sure to please readers. Introduction by Neil Gaiman
