The Science Fiction department at the Oxfam Bookshop in Reading started existence as a single gondola, hosting around 100 books, mostly new and glossy, TV spin offs and the latest fat fantasy.
However over the years, under the new leadership, the Science Fiction department expanded to the extent where they now stock about 1,000 books. Additionally we have a spinner for pulp magazines, many of which were generously given to us by Brian Stableford. His donation has enabled us to host 3 Science Fiction Spectaculars, which have brought in an additional 4 grand for Oxfam's work.
We stock science fiction. Hard. Soft. Reimagined. Old School. Nu-skool.
Horror. Shlock-horror. Gore-fest. Traditional. Spine tingling.
Fantasy. Real World. Alternate World. Sorcerous Realities. Fat and slim.
Paranormal Romance - a beast of many backs. Fey, Demon, Werewolf, Vampire and Zombie - we're an equal opportunities seller of novels.
Cowboy. TV spinoffs. And genre-free or cross-genre novels.
The following is a random sample of our stock, taken about March 2011, simply to illustrate the range of novels we stock. There is no guarantee whatsoever that if a book appears in this list we will currently have it in stock.
We cannot take orders over the phone or by email. But we are open 9:30 to 6pm Monday to Saturday and 11:30 until 4:30 on Sundays for you to browse to your heart's content.
You can find us at 8 High Street, Market Place, Reading RG1 2EA
