Welcome to Orielis' Books!
Please take the time to browse through our catalog. We specialize in Science Fiction, Fantasy, Mystery, Romance, and Children's books (both recent and vintage).
We also carry an extensive collection of Rex Stout books, featuring the world's largest private detective Nero Wolfe.
Each week sees us adding more titles to our on-line catalog. Check back from time to time to see what is new.
In addition to our on-line offerings, throughout the year we go to various Science Fiction conventions within a four state area. For more information concerning where we will be vending this year, please see Events.
One area we have been expanding is our children's series books, featuring classics like Tom Swift, The Hardy Boys, and Nancy Drew, to other entertaining series like The Three Investigators, X Bar X Boys, The Black Stallion and many more. Look for these in our Children's Series category. We plan to add sub-categories here as well, to highlight some of the individual series.
Gail Z. Martin-Featured Author
We are starting a new feature on the Orielis' Books website--the Featured Authors section. Our first featured author is Gail Z. Martin. Gail is arguably one of the hottest new writers on the American sci-fi/fantasy scene. Her epic fantasy series, The Chronicles of the Necromancer, opens as Tris has narrowly escaped being murdered along with his royal family. In his quest to restore his kingdom he is aided by his ability to commune with the dead.
Deadly Curiosities is the first in Gail's new urban fantasy series. Set in modern day Charleston, SC, our heroine Cassidy, as far as anybody knows, runs a small antique business. But her family's mission for centuries, in league with a 600 year old vampire, is to search out magically dangerous antiquities and get them off the street.
Gail lives in Charlotte, NC with her husband Larry N. Martin and their three children and two dogs. Gail blames her fascination with vampires and the supernatural on the TV show Dark Shadows and a book of ghost stories she read as a kid, which explains why the first story she ever wrote, at age 5, was about a vampire.
Gail is one of our favorite authors and we are pleased to bring her to your attention. _________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Large Print Books
We continue to add to our inventory of Large Print
books and currently offer about 130 titles. We are always looking for more large print books of all kinds -- mystery, romance, thrillers, history, and more. We tend to pick up any large print books in decent condition that we find, as we know these books can be difficult to locate.
If you read large print books and are interested in a particular author or series, feel free to drop us a note and we can let you know when we get some in.Note on Easy Eye books
: In the mid to late 70s (mostly), there was a special type used by some paperback publishers called Easy Eye Larger Type. These books were pocket paperbacks and the type, while not as big as today's large print books, is definitely larger than the standard type used in a typical pocket paperback. We have included these in our Large Print catalog and identify them as Easy Eye or Larger Type in the book descriptions.
