Happy Holiday Shopping Guide! Annie’s Book Stop of Worcester, the “bigger on the inside” bookstore at 65 James Street, is happy to present our 2018 recommendations of gifts for the winter holidays.
One genre that has endured the test of time, with a devoted cadre of readers, is based in “the Wild West”, whether romanticized or historically accurate. The writers of yesterday nestle cheek by [occasionally unshaven] jowl on our shelves next to newer writers who’ve put their own spin on tales of lawkeepers and desperadoes.
We have a great deal of stock from our bestselling traditional Western writers like Zane Grey, William Johnstone, Louis L’Amour, and Jake Logan.
Then you have the Longmire Mysteries by Craig Johnson, which straddle both Westerns and mysteries with the greatest of ease.
And then there are writers like Laura Bickle, Joe R. Lansdale, and Hayley Scott, who’ve made us at home in “the Weird West”, blending in elements of fantasy and horror.
Come wander through OUR literary canyons, and thank you for making our shelves your destination.
