256 pages: collects three novellas - ''The Show That Must Never Die'' by Charles Schneider (''a curious and rambling essay with certain grand, glorious and once-secret revelations''), ''Memorabilia'' by D.P. Watt (''an evenings entertainment for two players, incorporating a number of singular tales'') and ''This Foolish & Harmful Delight'' by Cate Gardner (''a grotesque novella set in hell and theatreland, concerning love, death, dismemberment and a mechanical heart''). Limited to 300 hardcover copies.

''The Transfiguration Of Mister Punch is the work of three celebrated contemporary writers, working more or less in isolation from one another to produce what might be termed a literary triptych - a three panelled piece - fantastical in its parts, suggestive in its entirety of a reality altogether out of this dream we call life. A reality behind that little rectangle of gloom and plywood scenery where the myth of Punch is played out in time honoured fashion to the human world. This is the wondrous and dreadful, tragical and comical domain of Mister Punch & Co., fettered no more by the manipulations of humanity; real living things, breathing, large as life, real as the stars''.
