The former Rountree's R & B Club is now the permanent home of Black Oak Books HC. It's located between Parker and Carleton Streets on San Pablo Avenue, two blocks south of Dwight. This vintage building has been transformed into our new store which is 30% larger than our old store on Shattuck Ave.!

We usually evaluate and can buy books brought to the store for $$ on Thursdays from 2-6. However, we will not be buying books from now through January 31 because we want to concentrate on stocking our new mini science fiction and fantasy store with what we are sure will become the largest selection of new and used sci-fi and fantasy books in the bay area. (And of course we also have to restock our large selection of new books for the Christmas season!)

Please Note: we are really only interested in recent books in good condition or scholarly books. We also can come to you if you have a large amount of scholarly or other noteworthy books to evaluate and we will continue to do on-site visits during the Christmas season!

Please email us at with any questions, comments or concerns. Additionally, we continue to increase our online inventory of exceptionally rare and unique books that can be searched below. As always you may contact us at if you need more help finding that special book. Thanks for your continued support as we grow into our new home.
