Mark N,

Re your comment below:

"I visited MURDER INK a few weeks ago and they looked to be doing fine. Or are you referring to an earlier incarnation of the shop, and not the one in the '90's on the UWS?"

The one I'm referring to was a Manhattan bookstore started by Dilys Winn in the late '60's or early
'70's, and later taken over by Carol Brener.

When it was in operation, Ms. Winn was very protective of her name. When Bruce Taylor started a similar mystery book shop in San Francisco, he originally called it Murder, Inc. (INC instead of INK). Despite the difference in spelling, and the thousands of miles of distance between the two stores, Ms. Winn insisted that Taylor call it something else. Taylor eventually relented, and his store thus became the San Francisco Mystery Book Shop.
