372-page retrospective of Jane Rice's sixty-year career in weird fiction: introduction and afterword by editors Stefan Dziemianowicz and Jim Rockhill respectively. 500 numbered copies printed.
''from her earliest stories for John Campbell's Unknown Worlds, through the 1950's tales written for Charm and The Magazine of Fantasy & Science-Fiction, to the recent novelette ''The Sixth Dog'', all of Ms. Rice's macabre fiction is collected in this book. Editors Stefan Dziemianowicz and Jim Rockhill have done a splendid job of tracking down stories from a wide variety of sources. Ms. Rice herself did revisions on several pieces to restore previously excised supernatural elements. Additionally, rrumour had long been rampant of ''missing'' Jane Rice stories written for Campell's Unknown Worlds and these have also been tracked down by the editors and now represent the author's preferred version''.
