Local Bookshop Update

You may recall my earlier post concerning the promising chat I had with the staff member in charge of the crime department in my local Waterstones concerning the distinct lack of historical crime novels and, in particular, Paul Doherty’s work. A sole mis-shelved copy of The Mysterium was found, but she promised to look into ordering some more.

Well, a week later, I popped back in, and there was a copy of Nightshade, another copy of The Mysterium and Murder’s Immortal Mask (from the Ancient Rome series) which I happily purchased.

Optimistically, I returned a couple of weeks later and lo and behold, copies of Corpse Candle, The Magician’s Death and The Waxman Murders had also appeared – the last two also coming home with me.

Anyway, I returned this morning, and …

So either Paul Doherty’s books are like Tribbles, or talking to your local bookshop about your favourite books might help get your favourite authors a bit more exposure.

Oh, and when you leave, do what I do and turn your favourite books so they face outwards – that might help sales too!

About Puzzle Doctor

I'm a mathematician by nature and as such have always been drawn to the logical side of things. Hence my two main hobbies being classic mysteries and logical puzzling. Oh, and cats. No logic there, I'm afraid.

    Congrats on your good fortunes, PuzzleDoc! At the moment, I’m reading The Horus Killings and thus far I have enjoyed every word of it. Semi impossible disappearances from a labyrinthine structure in the desert, an apparent supernatural murder in a locked tower room and as of this moment I have reached a chapter in which a poisoned servant left a cryptic dying message. Doherty is a man after my own heart!

    Thanks for introducing me to Paul Doherty and I hope to have review up this upcoming weekend.

  2. Well done mate – you clearly have great powers of persuasion.
