The Mysterious Bookshop

Mysterious Publications

The Mysterious Bookshop is proud to publish many of its own exclusive titles, all collectors' items you won't find anywhere else.

Due to popular demand, Otto Penzler's biblio-memoir about his world-renowned personal collection, Mysterious Obsession, is back for a third printing. It offers a unique perspective of not only crime fiction, and not only book collecting, but of the literary life as a whole as experienced by one of its greatest proponents.

Ian Rankin's exclusive bibliomystery story for The Mysterious Bookshop, The Travelling Companion, is still available in paperback—a novella by the world-famous author that most Inspector Rebus fans will have never read.

Joyce Carol Oates spins her own bibliomystery yarn in Murder, Inc., which we still have available in limited-edition numbered and lettered hardcovers, as well as paperback.

For a more unconventional bibliomystery author, Goosebumps creator R.L. Stine pens a chilling tale in The Sequel about writer's block literally coming to attack an unsuspecting author. Available in limited-edition hardcover as well as paperback.
