by Joe Hill
First Edition, Tip-In, Specially Bound
Hardcover

We have signed copies of Strange Weather available, signed by Joe Hill on a specially-bound tip-in.

“Joe Hill delivers with Strange Weather, a collection of four novellas. Hill has developed a writing style akin to an oil slick - eerie sentences that leave behind something that shines unclean. There's nothing clean about Strange Weather; each tale is a horrific glimpse just beyond normalcy. Horror can often be best delivered as an understatement, luring the reader into a world that seems just reasonable enough. When Hill reveals his tricks (whether a magical camera or a cloud disguised as a UFO), they loom uncomfortably dark on the horizon. Fans of H.P. Lovecraft won't be disappointed with this collection.” — Atticus Solomon (M), Literati Bookstore, Ann Arbor, MI

by Lynn Freed
First Edition, First Printing, Signed Title Page
Hardcover

We have signed copies of The Romance of Elsewhere available, signed on the title page by Lynn Freed.

"If Joan Didion and Fran Lebowitz had a literary love child, she would be Lynn Freed--or, at least, the resulting book would be Lynn Freed's essay collection, The Romance of Elsewhere . . . The collection of 20 previously-published essays spans decades and continents, and is in equal turns funny, wise, and sardonic; charting both Freed's evolution as a traveler and her evolution as a writer. Travelers and readers seeking an unusually un-romanticized take on wandering the world will love it." --Bustle

Lizzie Borden took an ax

by Justin Spring
First Edition, First Printing, Signed Title Page
Hardcover

We now have signed copies available of The Gourmand's Way, signed by Justin Spring on the title page.

During the thirty-year boom in France following World War II--les Trente Glorieuses--Paris was not only the world's most stylish tourist destination, it was also the world capital of gastronomic genius. In The Gourmands' Way, Justin Spring tells the story of six American writer-adventurers having the time of their lives in the City of Light during this period and, in doing so, transforming the way Americans talk and think about food--and the way they eat.

The six are A. J. Liebling, Alice B. Toklas, M.F.K. Fisher, Julia Child, Alexis Lichine, and Richard Olney. The Gourmands' Way is the first book ever to look at these unforgettable figures as a group.

by Peter Carey
First Edition, First Printing, Tip-In
Hardcover

We now have signed copies available of A Long Way From Home, signed on a tip-in page by Peter Carey.

The two-time Booker Prize-winning author now gives us a wildly exuberant, wily new novel that circumnavigates 1954 Australia, revealing as much about the country/continent as it does about three audacious individuals who take part in the infamous 10,000-mile race, the Redex Trial.

"One of the pleasures of The Girls in the Picture is its no-males-necessary alliance of two determined females--#TimesUp before its time."--NPR

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Swans of Fifth Avenue and The Aviator's Wife, a fascinating novel of the friendship and creative partnership between two of Hollywood's earliest female legends--screenwriter Frances Marion and superstar Mary Pickford

by Maggie Stiefvater
First Edition, First Printing, Signed Title Page
Hardcover

We now have signed copies of All the Crooked Saints, signed by Maggie Stiefvater on the title page.

"This book. Oh, this book. I don't even know where to start. Maybe with the characters - complex and mysterious, frightened and flawed, brave and miraculous. Maybe with the music - an celebration of the music of the 60's and pirate radio. Maybe with the light - bright miracles that make you reconsider what you most fear. Maybe with the dark - dangerous miracles that make you reconsider what you most need. Maybe with the miracles themselves - two miracles, torn from heart and soul, that make you want to embrace rather than run from the darkness we each hold inside. What I know for sure is that I have to end with the writing - the glorious writing that marks any Maggie Stiefvater novel - and this is the most Stiefvater of them all." - Flannery, Bookshop Santa Cruz Staff
