For over 25 years, John Knott Books has specialized in fine first editions of popular literature, with an emphasis on science fiction, fantasy, supernatural and horror, mystery & detective fiction. In addition, we offer pulp magazines, ephemera (such as manuscripts and letters), as well as signed books, limited editions, award winners, and books in all areas of popular fiction.

Our stock is primarily available on our website and at book fairs.  We offer email sales lists and updates via constant contact, and issue occasional catalogs. We are always interested in purchasing books. Let us know what you have. While we highlight these areas we do not limit ourselves to them.

News: A busy April-May, we exhibited at the New York
International Book Fair which was very successful, the
show attendance was terrific. The virtual fair is no substitute
for the in person fair, it is a good adjunct though. New books
to catalog abound, but first another trip out of town for a
collection. Stay tuned...

Just a reminder, we are interested in acquiring new material, whether collections are large or small we would be happy to talk to you. We are also interested in acquiring new pulps.
