You might want to check out Jamie Fraser Books. There website is at:
It operates by appointment only and you have to call at least 24hrs in advance, but they generally have a good selection of vintage pulps and pulp novels.
As far as Toronto-based fiction goes, the TORONTO NOIR volume in the Akashic Noir series might be a good place to start.

(Did I already post this question? Did I miss a Digest in which it was responded to? Apologies, I'm just getting over a bad flu.)
A few weeks from now I will find myself in Toronto for business. Questions:
1. Any recommendations on good used bookshops, especially for older/vintage crime and hard-boiled?
2. Any recommendations on good reads set in Toronto and/or by Toronto writers? (I am coming up with one book, Michael Ondaatje's IN THE SKIN OF A LION, which wonderful as it is doesn't really fit R-A parameters even with a stretch.)
I hope this post is not a redundant time-waster; I'm now going to go check the Archives.
