This is an extremely nerdy bookstore specializing in science fiction and fantasy books and comics. I can't emphasize enough how nerdy it is. The employees are among the nerdiest people I've ever encountered. They are also extremely helpful and they know their stuff. I once went in looking for what I thought was a pretty obscure science fiction book, and although they didn't have it in the store (despite an impressive selection), the guy I talked to knew all about it and offered to order it for me. This place is like paradise for nerds.

Under the gentle supervision of Shegrat the cat, the friendly and knowledgeable staff here run one of the best bookstores around. With a fantastic selection of Mystery, Fantasy, Science Fiction, and Science Fact books around, what more could you ask for? But this Hobbit has more than books to entice consumers. The Other Change of Hobbit has everything a geek desires from DVD's of Buffy and ST:TNG to boxed sets of Phillip Pullman and Tolkien, to audiobooks on CD or cassette, a great collection of Science Fiction films and TV shows on VHS and DVD. All that and a feline overlord as well. Don't forget to contribute to Shegrat's Vet Fund and give the gentle grey aging feline a rub under her chin, she had radiation treatment 2 years ago and could always use a little TLC. A rocking store, tiny but complete.

Pros: Feline Overlord!, Life-sized Gandalf!, Great books & staff!

Cons: Small space., Too helpful staff??, Nowhere to sit & read
