We know, we know, chain stores, blah blah blah. But if the chain thing were a real issue, then you, dear readers, would not have chosen Barnes and Noble as Tucson's Best New Bookstore. Again. So whether you're looking for a great book about real zombies (The Serpent and the Rainbow
by Wade Davis), the culture of nighttime (At Day's Close
by A. Roger Ekirch) or the Werewolves of London (I'll Sleep When I'm Dead: The Dirty Life and Times of Warren Zevon
by Crystal Zevon), or your taste runs to a brand new techno-thriller for the 21st century (Spook Country
by William Gibson) or a real-live horror story (Down by the River
by Tucson's own Charles Bowden), then Barnes and Noble is the place to go.
