It's quite frustrating to be a Sci Fi fan in Israel. Availability of products and books (in English), is limited and prices are relatively high. Although shopping internationally on the net is cheaper, it takes a lot of time for items to reach Israel and shipping costs also need consideration. Books are relatively easy to buy on the net and yet, we have some magic places of our own.
One such place is Yanshuf (owl) shop in Raanana. It has a magical time capsule in its basement. A room full of Sci FI. Books movies, collectibles and more books that fill this living room with a special aura. Time capsule, definitely. Every time I come down those stairs, I spend minutes only and come up an hour plus later. Time machine must be broken or something, it should work the other way around...
For those wishing to come and visit they keep new and used books in Hebrew and English, role playing games, comic books, posters, collectibles, merchandise…
