Boston: Little, Brown and Company. Very Good+. 1940. 2nd printing. Hardcover. (no dust jacket) [quite a decent copy, light soiling to covers and bottom edge (probably inevitable given the white buckram binding), slight dust-soiling to top page edges, paper spine label somewhat faded; the binding is strong and square, and the book is internally unblemished apart for a small scar on the rear endpaper]. The first of several story collections by the author of "Rogue Male," containing a dozen short stories, a number of which are set in Spain (where he worked and lived for a few years in the late 1920s) and South America. (The title yarn had been his first published story.) Several of the stories are crime or horror tales, but the most interesting (to me, I mean) is "El Quixote del Cine," about an old man in a small Spanish village whose life and fantasies are invigorated by the B-westerns he sees at the local cinema. . (Inventory #: 15855)
