RARA-AVIS: RE:New Orleans bookstores and Marie Laveau

I don't know of any particularly unique or interesting French Quarter stores, but if you get a chance, you may want to visit The Garden District Book Shop at a mall-like setup called The Rink on Prytania in the, well, Garden District ( don't have the exact address on hand). The owner, Britton Trice -- a very nice guy, by the way -- is responsible for the pricey, special boxed and signed short run editions of novels by Connelly, Crais, James Lee Burke and, I think, Pelecanos. Lots of other signed firsts by locals like Anne Rice. Plus of course, the New Orleans history, customs, etc. books. And, combining a notice of my commercial connection and BSP, I think Britton may still have a copy or two of my private eye novel,"The Neon Smile," which has a little bit to say about Marie Laveau.

Any rare birds know of a decent independent or used book store in and around the French Quarter? I'll be there next week for a conference and would love to explore. Looking for more than just HB collections.
