With twenty-five stories, this collection of noir fiction and slice-of-life stories presents a side of Kersh rarely seen. Included is one of Kersh’s finest tales,
The Extraordinarily Horrible Dummy and a fine science fiction tale,
This Stuff is Like Cigarette Ash. Also included is the rare
Blast, a story never before reprinted in book format. This book has a printed cloth front panel with a design by Limehouse Design/Medusa Press, an interior photograph by Jeff Hersch, and a brief introduction by Paul Duncan. Most of the stories in here have been out of print for decades.
