We also have a weekly message that we send out via
e-mail which we call our 'newzine'. It is made up of news
from the mystery world, award nominees or winners,
newly scheduled author events or signed books that we'll
be getting from other sources, books the staff has read
and recommends and anything else we think would be of
interest. If you would like to be put on the list please send
us an e-mail with your name.

Visit Our Shop Blog
We'll be blogging about the world of books, have authors write their thoughts after their signings, and post photos from events.
