The Mysterious Bookshop in New York City (Otto Penzler, Proprietor) was forced by Covid-19 to shut it’s doors for two+ months. It’s now open on a limited basis for business and curb-side pickup. I’m sure it could use your mail-order business. In times like this we need to support independent bookstores.
In order to sell something from where the employees were working off-site, Otto called on his many author (and a non-author, like me) friends to publish lists of favorite mysteries/crime novels. These lists would be sent out by emails and I found them very interesting. Mystery readers seem to love lists and these are some really good ones.
I thought you would be interested to see what some famous writers came up with on their short lists.
Here is a list of links to see each list.
Joyce Carol Oates
