Ten otherworldly ';diabolical delights' from the author of Rocket to the Morgue and ';The Quest for Saint Aquin' (Kirkus Reviews). Anthony Boucher was a literary renaissance man: an Edgar Awardwinning mystery reviewer, an esteemed editor of the Hugo Awardwinning Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction, a prolific scriptwriter of radio mystery programs, and an accomplished writer of mystery, science fiction, fantasy, and horror. With a particular fondness for the locked room mystery, Boucher created such iconic sleuths as Los Angeles PI Fergus O'Breen, amateur sleuth Sister Ursula, and alcoholic ex-cop Nick Noble. ';A fine volume of inventive entertainment' (The Times, London), this collection features ten of Boucher's greatest stories of science fiction, fantasy, mystery, and horror. A down on his luck college professor chats with a magician over cocktails, and a hairy situation ensues in ';The Compleat Werewolf.' Private detective Fergus O'Breen visits Mexico to investigate a peculiar case of a man with a skeleton in ';The Pink Caterpillar.' Meet androids and aliens in ';Q.U.R.' and ';Robinc.' A terrifyingbut tinydemon is summoned in ';Snulbug.' And a man discovers true terror lingering in the corner of his eye in the California desert in ';They Bite.'
