Otto Penzler on Collecting Dick Francis

Otto Penzler of The Mysterious Bookshop is presenting a weekly chat about famous authors and their rare mysteries every Wednesday at 1 pm EST on Instagram. These episodes will then be uploaded to YouTube and can be watched at any time. It is a rare opportunity to sit and learn at the feet of one of the world’s greatest experts on mystery/crime fiction.

This episode has Otto Penzler talking about reading and collecting one of his favorite authors (and mine): Dick Francis. Click on the link and enjoy.

I was a little disappointed that Otto didn’t mention how the writing of Dick Francis has stood the test of time. His books are just as readable and enjoyable today as when they were first published. His book NERVE was the catalyst for me becoming a mystery fan.
