First edition. "Mixed collection of fifteen stories, with five weirds, including two, 'Marsh Horny' and 'The Resurgent Mysteries,' which touch on a recurrent theme in Jepson -- the survival of paganism in modern England. 'A Change of Heart' shows the comical consequences of a heart transplant from a gorilla to a famous author. 'The Raising of Crissingham' explores in suggestive terms the efforts to raise a dead white man in the Caribbean by means of voodoo. 'Mrs. Busby-Glaisher's Awakening' portrays the comeuppance of a nagging housewife when she is accidentally buried alive. Commercial fiction of a fairly routine level, though sparks of imagination can be seen here and there." - Robert Eldridge. Clute and Grant (eds), The Encyclopedia of Fantasy, p. 519. Not in Bleiler (1948; 1978) or Reginald (1979; 1992). Hubin (1994), p. 442. Cloth rubbed at spine ends, corner tips, and along outer joints, a very good copy. (#149601). N° de réf. du libraire 149601
