We are now up to the letter M.  The A thru D titles you see were either not sold, or we have duplicates.

The Mysterious Bookshop
Not all books were published first in hard covers. Many major figures saw many of their books produced as paperback originals, including such giants as Elmore Leonard, John D. MacDonald, Lawrence Block, Ed McBain, and Donald E. Westlake. Sorry, you won’t their books among the following offerings, but all books listed below are the true first printings and most are out of print.
