White Dwarf Books, Dead Write Books: what do users think?
Patrick Swan: The older sister unit came to town for a visit and picked this book store a specific destination. Although I did not personally purchase anything, the owners were on point in their recommendations for everything my sister brought up as a point of interest. If you like science fiction or fantasy, this is the bookstore you want to go to. Also, I love that dog.
Warren Woodhurst: Good selection and if they dont have something they're more than happy to order things in for you. If you like Sci Fi or Fantasy, this is a great place to shop.
Nico Smith: An absolutely massive inventory of mass market paperback fantasy and science fiction books. Holy cow. You’ll find hardbacks in the New Releases section.
N Fitz: Excellent science fiction and fantasy selection. One of the best in the entire country.I make a point of stopping by when I'm in Vancouver.Lots of new stuff. But if you look closely at their many shelves, you'll seen many older and long out-of-print paperbacks as well!
Hxnnah UωU: Very nice people! Super good books
Wesley Prahalad: Amazing friendly staff. Great energy in the store itself. They really helped with some recommendations . If youre a speculative fiction fan u gotta visit !
Camille Dinesen: Love this store, I have been going for most of my life, they have a great selection and a great dog.
Jean-Francois Lacroix: Nice place! Lot of book! Really nice place for science-fiction, fantasy and mystery novel! The owners are great!
Ashley Lambert-Maberly: I've been going for years (they used to have two separate locations, one for mystery, one for fantasy/SF before they merged) and wow, what a wonderful shop! The owners have an amazing memory, they will get to know you and your taste—they can usually recall "you liked so-and-so, didn't you?" and make recommendations for new books based on your tastes and not necessarily theirs. They'll even steer you away from books they don't think you'll like (although they aren't really losing a sale; I imagine most customers are like me, and buy something else instead). It's small but mighty—filled with volumes—and there's always something new to discover. A favourite place in town (if I go more than four weeks without popping in, I make a point of a special trip!)
Olivia Dreisinger: Really amazing place. So much character to the space and the owners are so nice. If you want a book they don't have in stock, they easily order it in for you. Super communicate and efficient.
conskeez novaskeez: I went in randomly because I was working out front. Gave him a little rundown of what I like to read, and he pointed me in the right direction. I hadn't read books In years and now I can't put them down 🤘
Brenda Carre: This is a great bookstore with friendly and helpful staff.
Wanda Coallier: They have a great selection of books and can order in just about anything. I’m lucky I live so close by, I have been going in for a new book every other week it feels like. Lots of newly released and popular books on display to help you find something new.
David Tindall: This is one of the treasures of the west side of Vancover!
Dyllan Goldstein: Amazing selection if sci-fi and fantasy. Almost all my favourite reads in the past decade have come from the owners. I reccomend this store to all my friends and family.Plus, what's better than getting a good book and a cinibon from around the corner?As a side note they seem to take COVID seriously, so only a few people with masks are allowed in at a time. Nice to see the owners being safe
Barry Simunovic: These guys are the best, awesome selection and they can order in anything you want. Super friendly!
Heather Babcock: Great selection for mystery and sci fi/fantasy with knowledgable owners.
robert rothon: Knowledgeable owners. Excellent stock in both genres. Small retail space with narrow aisles, so masks strongly recommended in these COVID times.
Johnny Doubles: Always very helpful with great suggestions!
Jim McPherson: A reliable source for new and recent sci Fi, fantasy and mystery novels and collections. Can order anything in the field. Knowledgeable and friendly. Carries a selection of phantacea mythos publicatios
Adam: Great selection for such a little store! I was supremely impressed. I’ll absolutely be back once I’ve devoured the books I bought on my most recent visit.

Massy Books: what do users think?
Theodore Jakob: Phenomenal bookstore, incredibly helpful staff & great selection. The staff are very knowledgeable. Couldn't give a higher recommendation!
Sebastian Fiorini: Great selection, knowledgeable staff, and pays living wages for their employees. Highly recommend
MikeGonzales84: Great book store. Indigenous owned. Great selection. Easy to find. Definitely recommend visiting. I will be returning and getting a few more books at a later date.
Jesse Byiers: My favourite book store in the city. Phenomenal selection of fiction, poetry and indigenous lit as well as extensive reads on queer, gender and sexwork. With art and drama works upstairs that doubles as a gallery from time to time I can get lost in this store for endless hours.
Sofia Lowenstein: Really good selection of books if you're into socioeconomic issues. It also has a good selection of local authors, authors of colour, indigenous authors, and topics of all kinds. Just overall amazing selection and atmosphere and wonderful staff.
Chiara Berton: A very nice and cosy book store. I was very excited about the secret room behind a bookshelf.There is a great selection of books, also second-hand books.The only thing is that some books are to high placed to even look at.
Mary S: Really great selection but man o man are they expensive. Not for the budget conscious 😭
David Jolivet: Easily accessable by wheel chair, Or scooter, parking no problems accessable for mobile or whwel chair devices as well. Friendly staff, who are very eager to help if you need assistance in finding your book. Kid friendly and any book you want you'll get it here.great place its a really good business in Vancouver.
Rachel W: I came in specifically to ask for recommendations on some very niche topics. The staff compiled a whole list of recommendations (some of which weren’t even sold in the store) with zero sales pressure.. Extremely cool and knowledgeable bunch of people. Plus, over a certain price you can get a discount or you can donate it to the Massy Arts fund. Massy is an Indigenous owned and operated bookstore—very important, and so thankful to have this gem in town.
Travis Amyott: Charming book store, with friendly and knowledgeable staff. Fun to explore, and get lost in. Easy to order books, if they do not have in stock; they are happy to also redirect you to another store if it's a better option. Welcoming to all :).
Effie S: This is an example of an excellent book store. We are big collectors, and though we had less interest in the general selection, the rare books in the locked glass case were a delight to look at. The staff also didn't hound us or monitor us while we examined all the books and we took our time doing so (we inspect books quite meticulously). Once we selected the books, we returned to pay. A rare book set we recognized had just come out of a box and was being prepared to be priced. We inquired about it and even though it had not been put on the floor, it was offered to us on the spot and at an excellent price. We really appreciated that, that the staff were so friendly and accommodating, and also they gave us a nice tote for free to protect the box set. Will certainly stop in again on our next visit to this city.
Julie: Favourite bookstore in vancouver!Very cozy, neat and it has various kind of books about gender, indigenous people, and LGBTQ+.Reasonable prices for second-hand books, they are almost new.
FancyChristine: Massy books is a great space, and the staff are friendly and professional. I appreciate the large selection of books about Indigenous people, places and histories, it’s a very community-focused store, and I feel safe shopping there. The preorder process is easy, and I appreciate how it currently includes the option to make donations. Very grateful for Massy Books!
Gray Elf: Well curated book selection, art showcase, caring for employees, Indigenous owned, central location.... What are you waiting for? Get yourself to Massy!
Taryn Peterson: Indigenous owned wonderful bookstore with a secret room 🤩 would reccomend.
Elsi Dawson: Always welcoming, so helpful. Staff are knowledgeable, non-judgmental, and genuinely warm. Every time I'm here, I see interactions with the wider community that makes me proud to call this my local bookstore.
Duncan McIntyre: Extremely well-read staff members give the most thoughtful recommendations. Amazing selection. A must-visit - an experience like no other!
Soefae Chen: I visited Massy Books with a friend recently. The moment I stepped in, I was greeted by two very friendly employees, one of which complimented my makeup, which made my day. I am very impressed with this bookstore as it has many sections promoting authors that don’t get as much recognition as they deserve, such as Indigenous authors. The bookstore interior is very tidy and organized. There is even a secret room hidden behind a bookshelf, which was quite a surprise :) Overall, would reccomend!
Jui-Ting Hsu: An incredible treasure of books, of all parchment and genres, housed in a small enclosure within Chinatown. Peruse the sections, or - if you so choose - visit the website to discover new and welcome recommendations!
Marissa Jolin-Dobbin Lim: Amazing selection and service
M: Great selection of used books, wonderful service and fantastic prices.

PanBeh Bookstore کتابفروشی پان به: what do users think?
Hossein Meimani: Was told about this store by my producer for a shoot. I spent a few hours there on the day of the shoot and browsed the titles they carry during our down time. I don’t think I came across a single book that I didn’t find intriguing. They have great standards - topic range and quality of the material for each topic - for what they have placed on their shelves and it shows. The mosaic that is Vancouver could really use such high quality spots for each community.
Peyvand: Lovely Persian books here! I'm glad we have this in the Vancouver! I hope they organize a book Cafe for good discussions sometime soon.
Nasrin Moradinik: You may find a variety of books in a small store and order the books you are looking for, and the gentleman there can usually provide them. You might order online through their website as well.Overall, I love this place.
Nana AR: I recently visited this book store. It reminded me of my hometown. cozy, friendly and warm place
Shahed Valian: Great book store with the best collection of Persian books in Vancouver. Great atmosphere and very knowledgeable book keeper. Recommend to all Persians.
Vahid Amiri: I really like this Bolstore and I founded many amazing books overthere, I recommend it to all parents who are looking for good books, you should walk in and check their books specially for kids, they have many choices for different ages.
Hani Padidar: I ordered online from California, and I received the books on time with nice packaging, so happy to find them and of course, I’ll order them again
Zahra Shenasa: Today, I visited this bookstore. I loved the friendly atmosphere there. The owner of the store is a real gentleman. Books are great and prices are good too. I can wait to go there again.Zahra
Kamyar Chatr Zarin: Very amazing books
Djhdd dndjS: HelloI am a writer.I have a novel ready to be published.You print?
yashsvi girdhar: The owner of the book store is amazing! He has a great music playlist along with the great variety of books :)Also, got great printing quality :))
Payam Vaziri: I found this gem of a bookstore today when I was trying to find a good book for my brother's Birthday. Wow, I'm so happy so see a great store with an excellent guide who helped me pick the right book for the occasion. They also have a great selection of Persian books for kids. I was able to find some classics like Mimini there and I found a couple of new books which seem great. One is called "Maman Bia, Jeesh Daram" 🤣🤣 I hope it helps us with potty training our toddler. If you're looking for a Farsi book for yourself or you're trying to buy something special for your Persian friends, this is definitely a place to check out.
Kazem Naderi: My comments here might be more detailed than others since I was sharing an office with Panbeh and was observing the business operation very closely. PanBeh bookstore has a very diverse collection of books in Farsi. Panbeh, even though, is not a none profit, it really runs like a none profit as his owner simply runs Panebeh for his passion to make it possible for farsi speaking people in Canada have access to farsi literature.PanBeh customer service is exceptional. I have wittnessed so many times that its founder goes extra miles to meet his client's expectations.
Najlla Hafizi: Amazing collection of Persian (Iranian/Farsi) books and friendly customer service 👍Hundred percent recommended.
nur rashidi: Excellent selection of books for young children. Reasonable prices and friendly staff.
Rosa Rahimi: Wonderful bookstore to have in the heart of Vancouver with an excellent selection of books (that would otherwise be hard to come by!)
Ab Cd: Moving to Vancouver, I couldn't bring my Hafiz with me ( I had five back home), so I was like I have to buy one all this time. Luckily I came across PanBeh bookstore. He is welcoming and knowledgeable. He showed me many versions of the book and made sure I get a good price for the one I liked. Also if you are a Farsi speaker, regardless of your nationality, here is good place to stay connected with dear mother language. There are so many kids books as well. Come and visit you won't regret.
Sadaf Hajaghasi: I’m so excited that we have a persian book store in Vancouver! Lots of books with different variety including kids, poems, stories… The owner is very nice and knowledgeable.You can make prints and graphics there too.
Nasim Peikazadi: Amazing collection of Farsi books at the heart if Vancouver DT for all ages! So happy to find this great resource in town. Also, the owner is very helpful in finding what customers need.
farzi ghaemmaghami: Panbeh has been doing great for more than a decade by providing community with the best books and publications and unbelievable price match. Keep going and I wish you more and more success👌🌺
min ta: Panbeh is a wonderful book store, where you can find your favorite books from all kinds of genre.In my experience, I was so impressed for the book I requested that was not available in Canada but being ordered by store manager from Europe and I received it within a reasonable time.Very Friendly and cooperative towards clients and book lovers!I definitely recommend Panbeh to anybody who is looking for a quality book shop.
