Mystery Bookstores

Compiled and Written by Vicki Cameron

Reprinted from the June, 1997 Sisters in Crime Newsletter

The world is thick with mystery bookstores, 560 and counting. This survey looks at how authors and booksellers can work together for mutual benefit. Sixty of the 127 bookstores surveyed returned the form. Their answers and comments are a representative sample from all over the globe.

The information collected has been crushed into a handful of symbols. In the interest of saving space, street addresses have been removed, except for international stores.

Whether small, medium or large, each of the stores has a nice personality. Well, all except Old Books on the Strait in California which claims to be grumpy, but was probably just having a bad bookmark day.
