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.
Darin Kennedy-Featured Author
Darin Kennedy is our newest featured author. Darin, born and raised in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, is a graduate of Wake Forest University and Bowman Gray School of Medicine. After completing a family medicine residency in the mountains of Virginia, he served eight years as a United States Army physician and wrote his first novel in the sands of northern Iraq.
Darin's debut novel, The Mussorgsky Riddle, was born from a fusion of two of his lifelong loves--classical music and world mythology--and was published by Curiosity Quills Press in January of 2015. He is currently hard at work on the sequel.
Doctor by day and novelist by night, he writes and practices medicine in Charlotte, NC. When not engaged in either of the above activities, he has been known to strum the guitar, enjoy a bite of sushi, and rumor has it he even sleeps on occasion.
And here is a synopsis of The Mussorgsky Riddle:
Psychic Mira Tejedor possesses unique talents that enable her to find anything and anybody, but now she must find a comatose boy wandering lost in the labyrinth of his own mind. Thirteen-year old Anthony Faircloth hasn't spoken a word in almost a month and with each passing day, his near catatonic state worsens.
At their first encounter, Mira is pulled into Anthony's mind and finds the child's psyche shattered into the various movements of Modest Mussorgsky's classical music suite, Pictures at an Exhibition. As she navigates this magical dreamscape drawn from Anthony's twin loves of Russian composers and classical mythology, Mira must contend with gnomes, troubadours, and witches in her search for the truth behind Anthony's mysterious malady. _________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
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.
