About Dark and Stormy Night Books

Now entering our eighteenth year, Dark and Stormy Night Books is an online bookstore carrying Rare, Antiquarian and other interesting finds. Alasdair and Alexandra Johnson, Proprietors. Alasdair, from Edinburgh, Scotland has a colorful heritage including the salvage of shipwrecks off the English coast, and transportation of an eighteenth-century revolutionary relative to Australia. When not swashbuckling through the world of electronics and other gizmos as a lad, he scared himself silly with science-fiction, ghost stories and gothic novels. His partner, Alexandra, is a third-generation book dealer, whose family had the smallest of small-press workshops in the family barn. She is a graduate in history and art history from Bowdoin College, with a particular interest in the Far East and the China trade, the Pre-Raphaelite brotherhood, and the British Arts & Crafts Movement. She also spent some years working for a nationally known early-American antiques dealer. They make their home in historic Newburyport, on the Massachusetts coast.
