SYNOPSIS:  “Clarence Aaron Robbins (1888-1949), often credited as C.A. Robbins, but better known as Tod Robbins, was an American author of horror and mystery fiction. His posthumous and popular reputation is based on the short story ‘Spurs’ (1923), which Tod Browning used as the basis for Freaks (1932), a controversial film that suffered from censorship and bans, which developed a cult following.

This new selection of the curious work of Tod Robbins contains an insightful Introduction by Johnny Mains, who offers new information about an author who wrote for commercial markets, but also impressed discerning critics.

Contains:  *Introduction ‘An Unholy Biography’ by Johnny Mains; *Spurs; *from Silent, White and Beautiful:  Silent, White and Beautiful; Who Wants a Green Bottle?; Wild Wullie, The Waster; and *’The Unholy Three.
