August Recommendations from Pandemonium Books & Games

August Book Recommendations from Pandemonium Book & Games

Tyler Stewart founded Pandemonium Books & Games in 1989, and has been happily serving Boston’s science fiction fans ever since. The store was originally based in the book mecca of Harvard Square in Cambridge, Massachusetts, until moving six years ago to bigger and cheaper digs in nearby Central Square. Pandemonium hosts events every night, including author signings and game tournaments.

If you want to make Tyler’s day, simply walk up to him and ask him to recommend a book. Chances are that he’ll drop whatever he is doing and take you to browse among the shelves, pointing out titles likely to please. Tyler notes, “While I’ll read almost anything to do with science fiction, fantasy or horror, I have a definite bias towards fantasy. I also prefer the protagonist to be a least a little sympathetic. I need to care about the characters in order to finish a book. While new ideas always are appreciated, I also really enjoy when authors logically extend an old idea in new and clever ways, like a magician taking a hat out of a rabbit.”
