Going to be in the store? You can get your 13% but you've got to ask for your Friday the 13th discount.
There are some restrictions which include already marked down sale items, fuure publications, and British titles which are not in stock. We'll notify you if anything you order isn't subject to the discount and you can decide what you'd like us to do.
If your order includes any non-book items we'll have to charge you the regular Priority Mail rate of $8 for shipping since we cannot send these media mail.
What are you waiting for? Get shopping and start saving.
Our event with Dennis Palumbo to launch the first in his Pittsburgh-set mystery series has been changed to a talk and signing, no charge. We had originally announced this as a Coffee & Crime Breakfast but overwhelming response has forced us to change this to a simple talk and signing.
If you've already paid for tickets we'll take care of you--just give us a call at the store to discuss: 412-828-4877.
On Tuesday, August 31 at 7 pm we'll have a unique event at MLB, an author talk, signing and violin recital with Gerald Elias. Mr. Elias is the assistant concertmaster at the Utah Symphony Orchestra and he's visiting us with the second of his mysteries featuring violinist Daniel Jacobus. Danse Macabre is the title and Danse Macabre is the musical selection when Mr. Elias appears at the store. The first of his mysteries, Devil's Trill, is here in paperback.
Please call 412-828-4877 or use our Contact Form to let us know if you're coming.
