Adventures Underground is located in Richland, Washington (USA), and we sell books all over the world. Our open shop is located in the Uptown Shopping Center at 1391 George Washington Way. If you visit our store, you will find wide aisles and a clean, well-lit, and friendly atmosphere, with thousands and thousands of books, toys, comics, games, and records.

We have fielded many queries about our store name, which comes from the original title of Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland: Adventures Under Ground. We are neither an amusement park nor a spelunking business. Even our bookstore dog, Charley, is named after Lewis Carroll, whose real name was Right Reverend Charles Lutwidge Dodgson. Our cat, Mr. Peterson, however, is named after the cat in Scott Dikkers' comic strip, Jim's Journal.

We began our internet presence in 1999 with a small selection of used books online. Since then our web inventory has exploded tremendously, and we now carry new books and remainder (or discount) books, with a large new selection from Fantagraphics Books and Eros Comix, with an early emphasis on R. Crumb, Edward Abbey, and L. Frank Baum. Graphic novels are now our largest genre for new books, though we try to keep up with demand for young adult fantasy as well.

We used to focus on cover art and prints, but found they don't do as well in-store - of course we haven't made a very good poster display yet either. So, despite our covering our back walls with slatwall to hang toys and collectibles, there is still a fondness in our hearts for the under-appreciated paintings on books. ("Cover art" refers to the original painting done for the cover of a book, which is then processed by the publisher and printed on the book. We carry the artist's original art for many titles.)

Gaming has ballooned here in our store. We started with just a shelf or two of euro games - those games that maybe the chains didn't carry, and now we have several thousand board games and card games, as well as all the supplies that go with them, including expansions, spare parts, card sleeves and boxes, dice and bags, and even apparel. We even opened a dedicated gaming area in the back of our store, so we could replace our previous table-space with four more aisles of games. We should point out that we don't carry video games or computer games, just good old-fashioned board/card games, which are really nothing like the Troubles and Monopolies you grew up with.

We strive to provide quality products at affordable prices to all buyers, and we guarantee the descriptions of all items. we're not a widget-seller and we care about the low-fi entertainment we offer. If you are interested in any titles or have any questions about our inventory, please don't hesitate to ask.

We also have a secure online shopping cart, so you can place your orders securely through our site, for shipment directly to your home, or awaiting pick-up in our store.

Thanks for visiting!
