[Browns Mills, New Jersey]: Whispers Press, 1980.. Octavo, cloth. First edition. One of 250 numbered copies signed by introducer Russell Kirk, artist Stephen E. Fabian, and editor/publisher Stuart Schiff. A posthumous collection of five tales of terror and the supernatural by Smith with introduction by Russell Kirk. The stories "have been compared to the horror tales of M. R. James (1862-1936), with whose work he was familiar. Two feature supernatural phenomena with horror in SF overtones. 'The Scallion Stone' hints at a tentacled biological monster from the sea; 'The Propert Bequest' also has a creature whose nature may be supernatural, biological or both. It is not clear when the stories were written; they were never submitted for publication during Smith's lifetime." - SFE (online). Tymn (ed), Horror Literature 4-199. A fine copy in fine dust jacket and cloth slipcase. (#158317) (Inventory #: 158317)
