Chillermania Indian River

Chillermania Indian River review, pics, hours, and info. Chillermania is author Jonathon Rand’s personal HQ, store, and museum of American Chillers and Michigan Chillers books and memorabilia.

The Chillermania Indian River MI store is a fun little stop if you’re up north in the Petoskey/Harbor Springs/Indian River area. Kids really enjoy it. Chillermania is decked out like a year-round Halloween shop with all the spooky skeletons and bats. The walls are stacked with books and posters from floor to ceiling and is a small museum dedicated to the insanely popular Chillers series.

Johnathan Rand, author of the American Chillers and Michigan Chillers series, is a frequent traveler throughout the school year as he visits many schools to visit with students and promote his children’s books. Johnathan Rand is also an author of mystery/sci fi books for adults. He uses a pen name (Chris Knight) so as to not confuse people who might think they are children’s books.


We stopped by Chillermania and were lucky enough to be greeted by Johnathan Rand himself (your best bet to catch him are the summer months)! Chillermania is an excellent place to visit for kids. Imagine if your favorite author or celebrity had their own store or shrine where you could just drop-in and perhaps meet him or her!
