The Bibliomystery Series

For many bibliophiles, especially aficionados of mystery fiction, some of the most beloved books and stories feature a background of bookstores, libraries, rare books, manuscripts, priceless volumes and eccentric book collectors.

We publish new Bibliomysteries every year. Each story features books and/or those who write them, buy them, read them, collect them, sell them or are in some way involved with them. All are written exclusively for the store and are not available anywhere else until sometime after our publication. Each story will be available as a limited edition hardcover volume in an illustrated dust jacket. The hardcover editions are limited to only 100 copies, numbered and signed by the author, at $50; there also will be 26 lettered copies, also signed by the author, at $100. The stories will also be available in paperback generally for $6.95 each. They are also available in eBook format through our digital imprint,

Individual stories can be purchased online (as availability permits), or you can subscribe to the entire series by emailing us at or calling (212) 587-1011.
