RARA-AVIS: LA Mystery Bookstores

Two good mystery bookstores in Los Angeles come to mind. The first is Mystery Bookstore at 1036-C Broxton Avenue, in the center of Westwood Village, just to the south of UCLA. They have a terrific selection of mysteries, including many first editions. My friends and I are all preparing to head there for George Pelecanos' signing next month. Another favorite is Mystery Pier Bookstore, off Sunset Avenue in West Hollywood. It's a bit hard to find (one must squeeze down a narrow alleyway to a hidden cottage) but well worth the search. Inside are hundreds of first edition mysteries and sci-fi novels. The owner's son, Louie, is helpful and quirky.
