A LIMITED EDITION HARDBACK (300 copies only). New and unread. Price still on dust jacket. Cover illustration by Cedric Laquieze.

John Collier is best remembered for his short stories, although he was also a poet, novelist and screenwriter. He was given the Edgar Award and the International Fantasy Award in 1952 for the collection Fancies and Goodnights, and several of his most memorable tales were adapted for television and film. (One even became a musical by Stephen Sondheim – Evening Primrose.)

It is hoped that this new selection will resuscitate Collier’s reputation and make his best work available to a new generation of reades

The stories are: Man Overboard; Green Thoughts; Special Delivery; Thus I Refute Beelzy; Evening Primrose; Witch’s Money; Are You Too Late or Was I Too Early; De Mortuis; Fallen Star; Pictures in the Fire; Wet Saturday; The Lady on the Grey; Old Acquaintance; The Devil, George, and Rosie; Ah, the University!; Midnight Blue; Gavin O’Leary; Little Memento; The Steel Cat; Sleeping Beauty; In the Cards; The Invisible Dove Dancer of Strathpheen Island; Spring Fever; Youth from Vienna; A Matter of Taste; A Dog’s a Dog.
