London Writing

This list includes a selection from the shop's extensive range of stock - both fiction which is set in, and non-fiction which tells interesting tales of - the weird and wonderful metropolis in which Housmans Bookshop finds itself.

Our fiction books cover a plethora of cult, trangressive and political material; and our non-fiction stock includes words and pictures relating especially to the historic districts around the shop's Kings Cross base.

"And it is utterly true that he who cannot find wonder, mystery awe, the sense of a new world and an undiscovered realm in the places by the Gray's Inn Road will never find those secrets elsewhere, not in the heart of Africa, not in the fabled hidden cities of Tibet...The matter of our work is everywhere present", wrote the old alchemists, and that is the truth. All the wonders lie within a stone's throw of King's Cross station." - Arthur Machen
