New Word Horde Emporium Website

In case you haven’t heard, we recently opened a book and game store in Petaluma, California where you can find not just Word Horde titles, but books from many of our favorite presses, small and large.

Word Horde Emporium of the Weird & Fantastic is a “wonderfully curated” bookstore specializing in weird, horrific, fantastic, and speculative fiction for all ages, including a Spooky Kids Zone. We are the Bay Area’s home for the best in Independent horror and weird fiction, and possibly the largest collection of Penguin Classics.

We also carry RPGs, board games, puzzles, and gaming accessories, as well as tons of stickers, buttons, and pins, creepy decor, quirky collectibles, candles and bath goodies, over 40 different tarot decks, journals and stationery, plush monsters and guts, jewelry, art, oddities, and so much more!

If you’re in the Bay Area, stop by! We’re open Wednesdays through Sundays at 301 2nd Street at the corner of 2nd and E Streets.

Now you can also shop the Word Horde Emporium of the Weird & Fantastic online at! Inventory is still being loaded, but so far our Small Press section is well stocked and worth exploring, as are Fiction/Horror and several Accessories categories. We offer shipping and local pickup, including curbside.

Note: Due to issues coordinating the store POS with the Word Horde website, there are currently two shopping cart systems.
