A few years back, the show had an SF/F theme and it was stupendo-awesome. Even when genre is not the theme, it's still amazing. You can count on first editions of Dracula, the Hobbit, Harry Potter & the Philosopher's Stone, etc. alongside firsts of Newton's Principia, Vesalius' anatomy and tasty incunabula. If the smell of musty books turns you on, you must go.
