White Dwarf Books is a science fiction and fantasy bookstore located in Forrest Place in the Perth CBD. It's pretty easy to find. It's across the road from the Perth Train Station and right next to the big green cactus statue. Yeah. That one.
White Dwarf Books is a completely different experience from some of the other bookstores in town. It's quiet for one thing. Calming. They don't try to be hip or trendy. They just focus on books here. White Dwarf Books is determined to have the largest and best collection of science fiction and fantasy books in all of Perth.
There is a vibe when you walk into White Dwarf Books. You can just tell that the people that run this place adore what they do and take great pride in their book collection. This is a bookshop that is serious about its love for science fiction and fantasy books.
When I was a teenager, I went through a huge period where all I read was Star Wars books. I spent so many hours in my high school library curled up on a bean bag reading about Han, Luke and Leia and their teenage kids. I must've read hundreds of Star Wars books. I lived in that universe.
White Dwarf Books has what I think might be the best collection of Star Wars books in the entire city of Perth. They have SO MANY STAR WARS BOOKS. They have so many books they are stacked in two rows on the shelves. They have all of the "Legends" Star Wars books (books that came out before the rebooted Disney movies were released), rare Star Wars books, video-game tie-in Star Wars books and all the new Star Wars books. And some dedicated person has gone to all the trouble of putting all of these books in chronological order.
In addition to Star Wars books, White Dwarf Books also has many other things available for purchase. They have a big collection of books that tie into video game and movie franchises like Mass Effect, Minecraft, Alien and Resident Evil.
