Signed Copies Now Available at The Mysterious Bookshop

It's been a busy week here at the bookshop, what with the likes of, ahem, Joyce Carol Oates and Anthony Horowitz popping in to sign copies of their latest and greatests. While she was here, Joyce Carol Oates signed her new collection of stories, The Corn Maiden and Other Nightmares. Follow tried and true themes of exploitation, kinapping and the cruelty of children, this is Joyce at her dark and disturbind best ($24.00).

We also have signed copies from Michael Dirda, Lene Kaaberbol and Agnete Friis, and more! Don't beleive us? Why don't you stop in and see for youself?
Check out our full list of our newly signed titles after the jump!











On Conan Doyle by Michael Dirda contains essays, both memoir and appreciation, by this Pulitzer-Prize winning critic and book columnist for the Washington Post. As well as the essays on Holmes Dirda gives us a rare insider’s account of the activities and scholarship of The Baker Street Irregulars. $19.95








As expected, our event featuring Michael Dirda and Anthony Horowitz was very well attended. Horowitz signed copies of the U.S. Edition of The House of Silk. This new Holmes story, authorized by the Arthur Conan Doyle Estate is, according to Otto, simply the best Sherlock Holmes novel written since...since..well, since The Hound of the Baskervilles. High praise indeed. $27.99







The Boy in the Suitcase by Lene Kaaberbol and Agnete Friis is available with tipped-in signatures, the only signed copies available in this country. This novel from Denmark (watch out Sweden!) begins when Nina Borg agrees to go to the train station to pick up a suitcase for a friend. Inside she finds a boy - drugged but alive - and Nina is soon involved in a nightmare of murder and human trafficking. A First Mystery Crime Club Main Selection. $24.00






Another well attended event was the launch of New Jersey Noir, edited by Joyce Carol Oates. These tales from the Garden State were signed by all the contributors who were present as well as by Oates. We have many pre-orders for this titles, but there are some still available. $24.95
