Originally published as "Stories by Mama Lansdale's Youngest Boy. " Jeez, how to categorize this, an eclectic, HARD TO FIND collection by one of my very favorite authors? Some horror, some humor, some fantasy, some tall tales, all mixed up in Lansdale's delicious East Texas blender. Can't get enough of Joe, the Champion Mojo Storyteller. This is a tight, straight copy but does suffer from age-related browning especially on the inside covers. -- Dan Introduction (Bestsellers Guaranteed) essay1 The White Rabbit ( 1981) short story15 The Dump (1981) short story23 God of the Razor (1987) short sto...

Great condition for 60+ years old. Nice little collection of horror stories. It doesn't appear to have been reprinted, although I suspect all the stories here have been collected or anthologized elsewhere, as well they should be, since Leiber was a master of horror. -- Dan

Prominent corner crease on front cover, some non-obscuring staining to edges and back cover, otherwise book is flat and tight. Second printing of a collection only ever issued by Scholastic. It messed me up right when I bought it in sixth or seventh grade through the Scholastic Book Club. -- Dan View More...
Very good condition. Predates the Kane books with the outlandish Frazetta covers -- I always thought this one has a really cool cover painting. -- Dan
