You'll find a newly revised edition of Mary Kay Andrews' Blue Christmas, cozy titles by Laura Childs, Linda O. Johnston and others; new noir from Carol O'Connell and Michael Wiley and tons of others books in every genre.
Check the New Arrivals page for all that's fresh.
If you're a fan of Stephen Colbert, or know someone who is, you'll want to get his book: I Am America and So Can You. Packed with information, almost all of it wrong, this is the indispensable guide to modern American life, religion, politics and science. It even includes a special Holiday CD. (Actually, he lied about the CD).
We've got a limited number of copies of the latest Ian Rankin, featuring John Rebus, Exit Music. As the title implies, Rebus is preparing for retirement, tying up some loose ends, when a murder intervenes in his plans.
As this book is a British import, quantities are limited. Please order now to avoid disappointment.
We've updated the Staff Picks with the latest reads for October where you'll find several choices that you might enjoy.
The September Best Sellers for MLB have been compiled and posted. You can see that book clubs, author events and popular authors all play a role in this eclectic assortment of books.
The Shamus Awards are given by the Private Eye Writers of America. Nominees in each category are picked by a committe of PWA members who then vote on the winners. The awards were given at the just completed Bouchercon convention.
The Anthony Awards are given by the Bouchercon Convention, a fan convention held annually. Registered convention goers nominate and vote on the awards.
We've got a fascinating guest lined up for our Coffee & Crime author breakfast on Saturday, Oct. 20 at 10 am. James Swain is the author of a exciting series of novels that feature Tony Valentine, a retired cop who acts as an investigator for casinos to help rid them of card cheats and con men. Swain has made a study of this subject and will share with us his extensive expertise.
Please join us for Coffee & Crime with Jim Swain. Cost is $5 which includes continental breakfast, talk and signing and reservations are essential.
Happy reading while we wait out those fall colors,
Richard, Mary Alice and the MLB Staff
