    An eminently readable, clean and lean book with compact, straight forward stories involving likable protagonists and all the usual antagonists this is how I would like to sum up my feelings for this particular book The star attraction or the USP of the book is the writing style of Joseph Payne Brennan, and for people like me who get to read his stories for the first time, it becomes easily evident as to why Stephen King had praised his work.All the stories in this collection star s Luciu An eminently readable, clean and lean book with compact, straight forward stories involving likable protagonists and all the usual antagonists this is how I would like to sum up my feelings for this particular book The star attraction or the USP of the book is the writing style of Joseph Payne Brennan, and for people like me who get to read his stories for the first time, it becomes easily evident as to why Stephen King had praised his work.All the stories in this collection star s Lucius Leffing, the Victoriana loving Sarsaparilla drinking detective who, with the assistance of his friend Brennan, solves those mysteries which have something of bizzare weird attached to themselves sounds familiar Yessssss he is another of those occult detectives highly in demand during the 1970 s when fanzines were vanishing and even the old masters of Weird Tales were being forced to become formulaic, but despite all the trappings Lucius Leffing is actually an old fashioned gentleman who has great sympathy for his clients, and even greater courage while facing the adversaries All the adventures listed here are not occult related, and unfortunately, those involving the human agencies are quite flat with the ending becoming visible long before Mr Leffing has explained the things Such stories are which I would advise to rush through The Vanning Case Copycat Killer Murder In The Parks The Butcher Knife Murder Motive For Murder The Delivery One story, despite being rather humane in nature, has an interseting Hitchcockian feeling to it is Observations on Lorimer Street , which fittingly ends the volume But the best part apart from the excellent printing of the book, thich and very good paper, a few atmospheric drawings, and the signatures of the author and the artist which elevates the book to its well deserved 5 star status, is its actual horror stories where Lucius Leffing acts as the fighter of evil, namely 1 The Nursing Home Horror 2 The Swamp Horror 3 Death on 91 4 Wanderson s Waste 5 The Haunting at Juniper Hill 6 The Spruce Valley Monster.Like almost everything else written by Joseph Payne Brennan, this book is also bound to go out of print once its 1989 print run gets exhausted Before that happens, don t deprive yourself from reading some extremely readable entertaining stories, and get hold of this book ASAP
