Please join us for our annual Christmas party on Thursday, December 9th. In addition to the usual festivities, we will also host a spectacular autographing party in honor of an anthology that means a great deal to all of us at the store. Christmas at the Mysterious Bookshop, edited by Otto Penzler and published by Vanguard, contains 17 stories originally printed in chapbooks and given to bookshop customers as Christmas gifts over the past 17 years. All the living authors who wrote the stories collected in this handsome volume have been invited and we expect most of them to be present to autograph copies.
What a Christmas gift! Otto will be happy to personally inscribe copies to everyone on your gift list who reads and you will have the added bonus of a page full of autographs by many of today’s most distinguished mystery writers. The contributors are Charles Ardai, Lisa Atkinson, Lawrence Block, Mary Higgins Clark, Thomas H. Cook, Ron Goulart, Jeremiah Healy, Rupert Holmes, Andrew Klavan, Michael Malone, Anne Perry, S.J. Rozan, and Jonathan Santlofer. Also in the book but, sadly, no longer with us except in fond memory are George Baxt, Edward D. Hoch, Evan Hunter (Ed McBain), and Donald E. Westlake.
The signing event will be held from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. If you cannot attend but would like to have autographed first edition copies—guaranteed to be in time for Christmas—please let us know as soon as possible. The price is $24.95.

I've been looking forward to this book. For the signed copy do I just order as normal on your shopping site?

Wow! I always love to attend book signing and I also see this as a very enjoyable event this Christmas for bookworms like me. I hope I can be at New York on that day, coz I'll be coming from Glendale parks and recreation, where we had our company event. Perhaps I can still spend time here read books and enjoy the Glendale fitness center, as I look forward for the book signing.
