Schedule A Browsing Appointment

If you’d prefer to browse in person, that can be arranged. Phone us to schedule your appointment.

You and members of your household can come and browse in private, all with masks. Wolffy will be masked as well. Appointments are 3 days apart and the store sanitized in between to ensure Covid safety.

Howlingly Good Books!

Katje van Loon writes big, deliciously long speculative fiction and Kaimana Wolff writes big, long literary fiction…and poetry…and drama. Those books live at Wolffy’s Book Den, where you can come and spend a morning or afternoon, or even the entire day, picking out books for everyone on your list!  We have the very best in kids’ books and a huge collection of world literature for grown-ups.

You can have the place to yourselves, or you can call ahead to request certain titles or types of book to be set out for you. Just email wolffdenbooks@gmail.com or call 483-4940 to book a private appointment.

Each appointment is separated from the next by three days and we have a sanitation station, to ensure COVID safety. You may attend with household members. Please bring masks for everyone in your party, or at least for the person who will accept Wolffy’s invoice. Wolffy will be masked, too. You can pay by e-transfer (preferred) or by cash or cheque.

Tail-wags for a happy howl-li-day!
Wolffy, Kat, Tyee, and Sirius

Wolfies Wolfies Wolfies! An Entire Pack!

Is it any wonder that Wolffy’s Book Den is littered with books about wolves, for wolves, and even by wolves? (And dogs, their cousins, of course!) Perhaps you’ve met Lord Tyee, the wolfish K9 who thinks he owns the place, and Wolffy, his human pack leader (who really does own the place)? Then there’s the new addition to the Pack, a border collie pup, Sirius (the Dog Star) Li. Yes, seriously, we love all things K9. Like this Pack of local books, each of which touches on the wildness, wisdom, and witchery of wolves.

Appalled by the news story of the dogwalker who left six dogs in a hot vehicle, Lord Tyee had to warn dog-loving humans with his own version of the story in Hot Dogs. He sets this “cozy mystery” (as they are called in The Biz) in the unique town of Owl River, a place you humans might recognize. “I never smelled it coming,” he begins but soon finds himself trying to outwit his captors in time to do battle at the side of his beloved Pack Leader. $18.95

Lord Tyee has dug two wallows near the Book Den, one for each of his next two Lord Tyee Mysteries. Stay tuned. And please bring bones or sugarless treats on your next visit to the Den, eh?

Kaimana Wolff’s first wolf dog, Amaruq, also wrote a book, How to Keep a Human. ($17.95). In five linked, goofy stories, Amaruq tells how he fell in love, went to university and taught the professors a thing or two, saved his Pack Leader from freezing in the Yukon’s True Woods, saved her from a horde of die-hard home invaders, and became the King of Dawson City.

In Stranger Skies, Katje van Loon kicks off her second series on a world where humans lash out at witches, wolves and anyone who’s different. The True Woods still exist, but wolves have lost faith in Silva, their goddess, in their despairing struggle to survive mindless violence. Silva’s fall from grace leaves her in this alien land, bereft of followers and trapped in a mortal body. Should she strive to regain her godhood or accept mortality and find love? “Rattling good speculative fiction!” $19.95

Katje van Loon’s sharp, witty micropoems in Rewolfing the Soul nip at our Achilles’ heels, insisting we pay attention to the plights and pleasures of the Millennial generation. With spare but accessible design enhanced by simple but symbolic graphics, this lovely book is a hymn to the moon and the earth. The poems demand the return of the birthright of all young beings–the right to an authentic life, to run in company as honorable as wolves. $19.95

10% off when 2, 3, or 4 wolfie books from this Pack are bought together. Buy the whole Pack for $70! No tax, and we deliver. (Small gas charge for north and south of town).

Two Generations Re-wilding

In Cured of Kings, Kaimana Wolff, who’s been running with wolfdogs a long time, describes adventures with all too human princes and kings before finally accepting the pagan wisdom of wolves in this quirky but rich description of life as a Boomer woman. Cover by Powell River painter Arnie Nouwens. $18.95

Katje van Loon’s sharp, witty micropoems in Rewolfing the Soul nip at our Achilles’ heels, insisting we pay attention to the plights and pleasures of the Millennial generation.

The poems demand the return fo the birthright of all young beings–the right to an authentic life, to run in company as honorable as wolves. $19.95

These books as a set ($35 if bought together) make a thoughtful intergenerational gift for Millennials or Boomers wanting to understand each other better and to give voice to their experiences.
