Welcome to Flights of Fantasy Books & Games!

Flights of Fantasy is NOW a
Pokemon Go Destination!


SALE: Up to 40% Off!

Given the current pandemic situation, now and for the foreseeable future, I have decided that it is time to downsize the business. I am looking to complete this by end year.


I plan to cull the bookstore down to special orders and a curated range of books for each customer who wants to continue to buy their books from me. Direct curbside pickup from my home or mail/delivery if preferred, will be available. This applies to RPGs too — I will offer a 15% discount (with a few exceptions if I don't normally deal with the publishers, and/or small press) across the board.


I will continue to sell Magic the Gathering (MTG) booster boxes, packs and singles- again, either for curbside pickup or mail/delivery. Again, I offer a 15% discount across the board —  using Starcity Games as reference — with a few exceptions like limited printings.



SALE; Up to 40% off


All USED BOOKS, including RPGs, are 40% off, and all titles printed before 2020. 

We also have a table of Sci-Fi /Fantasy titles for $3.98 and a $1 table for mystery, suspense, adventure titles by authors like Michael Connelly, James Paterson, Robert Crais, David Baldacci, Dean Koontz to name a few — mainly hardcover editions and a few mass market.

NEW BOOKS, including RPGs, are 25% off, except for signed, limited edition, or No Discount (ND) items, and the section in the store with the new Black Library (games Workshop Novels), Dragonlance, FGR, and various series   these books are not part of the sale. You can, of course, buy them! 

We are open Monday to Saturday from 12 Noon to 6 PM. Come and see us- browse (10 customers at any one time) and help me move to the next stage of my business life.


See you soon!
