1) Where are you guys located anyway, and how do I get there?
Sleuth of Baker Street is located at 907 Millwood Rd., in the Leaside area of Toronto, at the southeast corner of Millwood Rd. and Sutherland Dr. This location is only about a kilometer south and east of where Sleuth has been for the last three decades. (Map This Location). The major closest intersection would by Yonge and Eglinton. Lots of free parking.

If you're coming in via Hwy. 401 take the Bayview South exit, continue south of Eglinton Ave., turn left at Millwood Rd. (east), and go to the second light, at Sutherland Dr.

If you're coming in via Gardiner/Don Valley Parkway/404 combination take the Bayview/Bloor exit to the Bayview North exit. Follow Baview North for a few miles to Sutherland Dr., (just north of Moore Ave.) turn right and proceed to Millwood Rd. FYI, the Gardiner Expressway runs east-west and joins up with the Don Valley/404 which runs north-south.The Bayview/Bloor exit is a couple of miles north of where the two join up.

If coming by Toronto Transit take the #88 or #88A bus from the St. Clair Ave. subway station and ask the driver to let you off at Millwood Rd.

3) How can I place an order?
We thought you'd never ask. Phone (416- 483-3111), fax (416-483-3141), e-mail (sleuth@SleuthOfBakerStreet.ca) and snail mail (Sleuth of Baker Street, 907 Millwood Rd., Toronto, ON, Canada, M4G 1X2) all work. Finally, you can also Search for books and place orders electronically. Works really well.

4) What credit cards do you accept?
Visa and MasterCard only.

5) What are your shipping charges?
Very reasonable. Please go the website for all the details (www.SleuthOfBakerStreet.ca).

6) What are your privacy policies?
We will never sell, loan, permit, or otherwise allow anyone outside of Sleuth access to your file. We will keep on file your name and address for newsletter purposes and credit card details for our mail order customers. We can, and usually do, keep track of your purchases. Keeping this information is useful for both us and you: we can remind you of what you've bought, try to avoid duplicates, and we can more accurately select books for you if we know what you have purchased already. If you'd rather we didn't, well, just say so and we won't.

7) I hear you have a truly wonderful newsletter, will you tell me about it?
We blush, you're being too kind. We do publish a newsletter. It's called The Merchant of Menace™ and it's published six times a year, usually at the beginning of the odd-numbered months. In each issue we list virtually all the new arrivals since the previous issue and annotate most of them. There are staff picks and suggestions, notices of signing, some chit chat, messages from Percy, and the usual bumf to pad the whole thing out to twenty to twenty-four pages. We are managing to part a number of unsuspecting publishers from co-op dollars, so you'll see ads for fortcoming books. You can view copies on the website.

8) Who are you guys anyway?
Well, the short answer is, Marian Misters and J.D. Singh. The two of us have owned Sleuth of Baker Street since October 1982--it was a fledgling three-year old at that time--and we're the ones that you'll be dealing with. The long answer, well, that'll take much longer, and alcohol might be involved.
