I'm going through my shelves, adding book to Goodreads, and I stumbled across this long forgotten signed first edition of an obscure Robert Bloch book. And I'm have not even read it! It appears to be comic fantasy written in the style of Damon Runyon and Thorne Smith. In other words, quite a departure for Bloch's usual mysteries and horror. Need to read it soon!

Wasn't expecting this to be a comedy. The young Horror Hound in me was disappointed by that, but I still liked the book.
