This and that…

We have many, many books, used and new, that are not listed on our website, about 25,000 in all. Come in and browse and find a treasure, or give us a call or drop us an email to inquire. You can also download our PDF catalog, featuring cozies, British, Historicals, International Mysteries, Noir and more. Some of our inventory is older and so some of these titles will be first come, first served. You can email us your order and we’ll get back to you shortly with a total; you can pay us via check or credit card. We’re offering a 15% discount on all our titles as well as free shipping via media mail in the continental U.S.

You can also search our inventory and order titles via our ABE Books page.

“After all, reading is arguably a far more creative and imaginative process than writing; when the reader creates emotion in their head, or the colors of the sky during the setting sun, or the smell of a warm summer’s breeze on their face, they should reserve as much praise for themselves as they do for the writer―perhaps more.”
―Jasper Fforde, The Well of Lost Plots

Aunt Agatha’s won the 2014 Raven Award, presented by Mystery Writers of America! Established in 1953, the award recognizes outstanding achievement in the mystery field outside the realm of creative writing.

We are absolutely thrilled and astonished to be the recipient of the Raven Award! We feel we have been privileged for twenty-one years to share our passion for mysteries with readers and to put forward the work of writers we love. We are really grateful to the Mystery Writers of America for this wonderful honor.
—Robin and Jamie
