As a convenience to members, OMS offers a small number of book titles for sale at most meetings and Mycology Camp, and at our Fall Show. We do not sell books on line.
- D. Arora, All That the Rain Promises (Ten Speed Press 1991). A hip-pocket field guide to western mushrooms. Recommended for beginners.
- D. Arora, Mushrooms Demystified (Ten Speed Press 2d ed. 1986). The classic 950-page reference. Covers all of North America.
- N. Siegel & C. Schwarz, Mushrooms of the Redwood Coast (Ten Speed Press 2016). A 660-page reference guide, with many large color photos. Despite its name it has very good coverage of Oregon mushrooms, especially in western Oregon. It has more photos of Oregon mushrooms than any other guidebook (as of 2016).
