Transreal Fiction

Scotland’s sf & fantasy bookstore

Transreal Fiction

Please see the Brian Ruckley page for details of how to obtain a signed copy of his new book, fantasy novel The Free, which came out in October.

Transreal Fiction is a shop dedicated to selling science fiction, fantasy & related books, together with a limited selection of other merchandise.But really, it’s about books. Transreal Fiction opened in April 1997 in Cowgatehead and moved to it’s present location nearby in June 2011. The owner, Mike Calder, first sold sf & f books many years ago and has worked in the business either part- or full-time since. For years he also had a respectable job as well, but that’s another story…

The shop is named after the term coined by Rudy Rucker to describe his fiction and I thought it an apt name for a shop specialising in speculative fiction. And, in case you’re wondering, yes, Rudy Rucker was happy to allow me to use of the term as a name for my shop.

  1. Hiya Mike

    I spent a day last week looking at a collection. If you are interested have a look and make an offer.

    haven’t spoken in a long time – I haven’t been in Edinburgh for a long, long while. Glad to see the shop still thriving.

    drop me a line and a mail address for me to send the spreadsheet for you to look at – or you can ring me at home if you like –

    cheers for now
    Kenny

  5. This is a comment to the admin. Your website is missing out on at least 300 visitors per day. I have found a company which offers to dramatically increase your visitors to your website: http://hand9.pw/2310 They offer 1,000 free visitors during their free trial period and I managed to get over 30,000 visitors per month using their services, you could also get lot more targeted traffic than you have now. Hope this helps :) Take care.
