Employee Recommendations

The Generations of Sci-Fi and Fantasy Live On

As a young intern who has missed many years (even decades) of quality Sci-Fi and fantasy material, I took it upon myself to go around The Boulder Book Store asking the employees for their recommendations. In doing so, I got the chance to see the wonderfully knowledgeable and geeky side of our beloved Boulder Book Store employees as well as a whole selection of favorites and recommendations that I would have never found on my own.
Thank you Boulder Book Store!

Ashanti Recommends...

-The Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch by Philip K. Dick

-Dune by Frank Herbert


-The Windup Girl by Paolo Bacigalupi

-The Last Werewolf by Glen Duncan (Look for Ashanti's official recommendation on the Boulder Book Store shelves, coming soon!)


Susan Recommends...

-Sandman: Dream Hunters by Neil Gaiman, P. Craig Russell

-Transmetropolitan by Warren Ellis (Volumes 0-10)

-Living Dead by John Joseph Adams


Tara Recommends...
