Specializing in first and autographed editions of science fiction, fantasy, and mystery books

About Ron Larson

RonLarsonI started out as an avid reader at a tender age and, while working in the high tech industry as a young adult, became a collector. Eventually I embarked on a fanatical pursuit of autographs for the books in my collection. For the past two decades, I have been meeting authors and illustrators by attending science fiction/fantasy conventions throughout the country and internationally. I am also frequently present at bookstore signings. Now, as a retiree, I have transformed a beloved hobby into a business.

About Red Dragon Books

dragoncarvingonbooksDuring a visit to China in 2001, a wooden carving of a red dragon caught my eye. The carving inspired the name for my business.

Formerly located in San Francisco, California, my wife and I moved south to beautiful San Luis Obispo on the Central Coast. Ours is not a brick-and-mortar store. We sell primarily online to customers all over the world and occasionally also at science fiction/fantasy conventions and book fairs.

I have an inventory of more than ten thousand books of which approximately eighty percent have at least one autograph, and many have more than one signature. Only a small percentage of my books are currently listed online. Over the years, I have gradually added books to my online listings. In the meantime, I welcome inquiries about particular titles and authors.
