About Sherlock Joe's Book Hunting

The bookstore will be closed for a vacation of book-hunting in the Pacific Northwest from March 1 - 9, 2024.

The game is afoot!

I focus on modern first edition, first printings, but have been lately finding first editions, later printings of older novels in my inventory. I'm also highlighting a lot of signed books that I've found.

I will also gladly search for and offer well-priced books of all kinds. If there's something you'd love to have, either send me a message here or go to and Open a Case!
