ABOUT US

WE ARE CURRENTLY CLOSED FOR BROWSING IN STORE DUE TO COVID-19, BUT WE'RE STILL OPERATING. AND WE'VE RELOCATED!

Get directions to our new location on 432 N. Anthony St. here. We are offering porch pickup for any order. We can ship to you as well; our shipping costs depend on the order. You can also shop online and get items shipped directly to you from our warehouse. The best way to support us is to toss a coin into our virtual tip jar or to purchase a gift card.

ABOUT THE STORE

Tubby & Coo’s is a local queer-owned, progressive, nerdy, independent book shop in Mid-City New Orleans focused on science fiction and fantasy, queer, and diverse books. The shop is named after the owner’s grandparents, Tubby & Coo, who grew up in the same neighborhood where the shop is located. 

 We’re a community center for nerds, geeks, and anyone who doesn’t feel supported elsewhere. We believe in creating change through building community, promoting literacy, and demanding social justice. We also ensure our community has access to stories that reflect diverse experiences. We envision a future where everyone is empowered, able, and encouraged to tell their own stories, regardless of social class, gender identity, sexual orientation, ability, religion, race, age, or culture. Every voice deserves to be heard, and we work to build a world where all voices are equally important.

 We also have a board game demo library of more than 300 games for customers to peruse. Come on in, choose a game from our gaming library, and play at our gaming tables! (Not currently available due to COVID-19.)

Our motto: “It’s all Geek to me!” For more information, visit our FAQ and Used Book Buying Policy pages.

ABOUT THE OWNER

Candice Huber (they/them) is a sixth generation New Orleanian and self proclaimed nerd/geek, and opening a book shop has fulfilled one of Candice’s lifelong dreams. Candice serves on the Science Fiction & Fantasy Task Force for the American Booksellers Association and is a writing, editing, publishing, and virtual event consultant. In the before-times, they hosted The Writers’ Forum on WRBH Reading Radio, focusing on interviewing science fiction and fantasy authors. Candice established TALES Publishing in 2018, which has thus far published three books.

Candice started reading at the age of two, earning the nickname “Johnny 5” after the Short Circuit robot who loved “input” any way he could get it. Besides books, Candice loves board games, Hamilton: The MusicalStar WarsSupernaturalDoctor Who, ThundercatsHe-ManShe-RaJem and the Holograms (see the 80s cartoon trend here?), musical theater, and Disney, among other geeky things. Candice also loves to write and tends to overachieve and get way too involved in things. Stop by, say hello, and ask for recommendations!
