262 pages: 25 page introduction by Johnny Mains. Clarence Aaron Robbins (1888-1949), often credited as C.A. Robbins, but better known as Tod Robbins, was an American author of horror and mystery fiction. His posthumous and popular reputation is based on the short story SPURS (1923), which Tod Browning used as the basis for Freaks (1932), a controversial film that suffered from censorship and bans, but which developed a cult following. Robbins novel THE UNHOLY THREE (1917) was also adapted for the screen, first in a silent version directed by Tod Browning (1925) and later in a sound version directed by Jack Conway (1930). This collection contains both of these (the latter 160 pages long), plus three other stories, ''Silent, White And Beautiful'', ''Who Wants A Green Bottle?'' and ''Wild Wullie, The Waster''.
