Dryad Books is an online one-woman bookshop stocking Fantasy, Sci-Fi & Horror fiction. Our focus is on providing a range of diverse titles, and we particularly pride ourselves on our curated selection of books with LGBTQIA+ representation. We believe every book should feel extra special, so each book purchased comes lovingly gift-wrapped & with a free bookmark at no additional cost. 

Now and then, we pop up at markets & fairs across the country. Our next event is: 

Fantasy Forest, 19-21st July, Sudeley Caste, Cheltenham.

Come and say hi!

Though based in the West Midlands, we ship across the UK, Europe and the US – check out the FAQ page for more information. If you'd like to purchase through Dryad Books, but can't find the book you're looking for on the website, let us know. We'll order it in, often despatching the very next day. We also supply book clubs and offer competitive prices – contact us for a quote!
