BOOKFELLOWS/MYSTERY AND IMAGINATION is owned and operated by Malcolm and Christine Bell, who have been Los Angeles-area purveyors of Mystery, Detective, Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror fiction since 1975. In recent years, under the name BOOKFELLOWS, the couple has expanded their stock to include all kinds of Fiction, Poetry, Drama, Children's Lit, Performing Arts, Western Americana, and fine books in many non-fiction areas. Malcolm and Christine are members of the Antiquarian Booksellers' Association of American and the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers; they serve on the board of Firsts Magazine, and regularly offer articles and advice to the readers of that book collecting journal. Our open shop, BOOKFELLOWS/MYSTERY AND IMAGINATION, is located in the Los Angeles area, at 238 N. Brand Blvd. in Glendale, California, and houses over 4,000 square feet of books, ranging from scarce first editions to paperbacks. We welcome want lists and happily conduct book searches. Give us a call at 818/545-0206, email us at [email protected], or, best of all, come visit us in person to browse, search for that elusive title, or just talk books. We're open seven days a week! Monday through Thursday, 10am-6pm, Friday and Saturday, 10am-10pm, and Sunday, noon to 6pm.
