Dymocks (Sydney)

Dymocks Building, 424-425 George Street, Sydney 2000 (map)
CBD, — by danny, February 2010

Many branches around Sydney, all generally well stocked with good selections covering all subject matter. The main branch is at 424-425 George Street, well worth a visit. SF and Fantasy are well-represented in all branches with current UK editions; as is the usual rule, the bigger the shop the bigger the selection. Some SF/Fantasy can also be found in remaindered/discounted tables in some branches, positioned at the entrance.

Dymocks Building, 424-425 George Street
The major branch, especially strong on fiction, also providing guides, maps, and a decent balcony cafe (art supplies, stationery at Dymocks Stationery next door at 428 George Street). The basement houses a superb SF/F section in which can be found plenty of rarities and SF-related toys and DVDs (almost enough to rival Galaxy) plus a good section on fannish stuff, comics and marginal literature; also down there is a large, excellent children's books section with quite a bit of computer-based learning material. Knowledgable staff on hand to help track something down, and definitely worth a visit; this is the kind of bookshop that ought to be open late every evening. [PY, October 2001]

350 George Street: Largish basement branch, good general reference & computing sections.
