Weekly Update 9/4/09


The limited edition of The Lineup is being snapped up, so if you have not ordered your copy yet, this would be the time to do so.

It looks now as though we will be shipping the last week in September. We will keep you informed if that shipping date changes. We are also going to have to charge $10.00 for shipping and handling. The Lineup is a heavy tome as well as a beautiful one and shipping is high - actually higher than we’re charging, but $10 seems like a good round number.


Last week I wrote that The Amateurs by Marcus Sakey is a Hard-Boiled Club Selection. It is not. So if you’re in that club and would like a copy, please order it. $25.95

Karin Slaughter did not sign Undone. If you still want a first edition, unsigned, let us know.


Michael Atkinson came in and signed copies of Hemingway Deadlights, his first novel, featuring Ernest Hemingway as sleuth. This means we can send out crime club orders. Hooray! We have a very few left over after the club members get their copies, so if you would like one, first come, first served.... Oh, and Atkinson has drawn a nifty little cartoon of Hemingway’s face. A First Mystery Crime Club Selection. $24.99

We also have a very limited number of copies of The Magicians signed by Lev Grossman. Again, call soon if you would like a copy. $26.95

The Last Ember by Daniel Levin is a first mystery with a definite "Dan Brown" flavor. Jonathan Marcus, lawyer, is summoned to Rome to examine a client’s fragment of an ancient stone map. When he stumbles across a hidden message carved inside the stone itself, he finds himself on a journey that will take him from the labyrinth beneath the Colosseum to the biblical-era tunnels beneath Jerusalem. $25.95

Jeff Lindsay signed copies of the U.S. edition of Dexter By Design. If you’d like to watch him doing this while chatting to Sally Owen at the store, go to our website: and click on our "Youtube" station which is described on the first page of the site. This title has a strict laydown date (before which we cannot sell), so there may be a delay of a few days before you get your book. $25.00

We also managed to get a very few copies of The Golden City signed by John Twelve Hawks. This is the third in the Fourth Realm Trilogy (and no, we don’t have the first two) and is a numbered edition limited to 777 copies. So again, first come, etc. $25.95


We’re excited that Homer & Langley by E.L. Doctorow is here, and in first edition. We expect him to sign sometime in the next couple of weeks. This is an Unclassifiable Club Selection. $26.00
