Neutral Good Books...Old Ones Welcome.

Neutral Good Books serves the community of Detroit Lakes and the adjacent lake country region of northwestern Minnesota first and foremost.
In an attempt to establish and promote the genres of Fantasy and Science Fiction & their numerous sub-genres, associated hobbies & media, Neutral Good Books will offer itself as a place both virtual and physical for like minded souls as a local source for the physical mediums and as a home for inspiration, solace, learning and exchange of ideas within our small rural community.
Lofty goals I will attempt to fulfill.

I have a deep love and passion for the common paperback.
They are rooted deep in nostalgia for me and command my time, attention and creativity in order to find and place them in the hands of collectors, readers and other odd folk of the paperback.
Neutral Good Books began in Colorado in the late fall 2013 as way for me to further explore a lifelong passion of paperback books, the genres of Sci-Fi / Fantasy, games and media; with the intent to ultimately open a bricks and mortar shop and share those passions and ideas with other like minded souls.
And, if a living can be eked out along the way, all the better.

My bookselling education truly began in early 2017 after reading Greg Gibson's specialty dealer speech entitled 'Don't Do It' that he gave at the Colorado Antiquarian Book Seminar (CABS) in 2009.
Mr. Gibson urged me to attend CABS and in the summer of 2017 I did just has been the singular best thing I've done since beginning this journey.

In 2020 Neutral Good Books traded the high country of Colorado for the lake country of Minnesota and relocated to the town of Detroit Lakes.
Currently, in search of a modest space to peddle my wares.
