Shana Porteen

aka "The CAPTAIN"

 

As the owner of the shop, Shana lives for getting a great book into your hands!  She's happy to talk your ear off about ANYTHING geek!  When she gets tired of people, she hides in the back room...

Rachel

aka "BETTER THAN SILENT BOB"

 

Rachel is simply the best!  She will help you find even the most obscure story line or book!  If she can't, she'll just shrug her shoulders...

Rich

aka "Number One"

 

Well, this guy is lovingly committed to the Captain but has his own gig impersonating a Criminal Justice professor!  He helps out in the shop from time to time, but we don't let him be in charge of much...
