One of the biggest bargains in fantastic reading today. Seven short stories by this modern master of science fiction, fantasy and horror never-before reprinted, plus Saturn Stolen, formerly published under the title "Cosmic Wheel" as an independent novel. Here are unforgettable tales seasoned with biting satire and a dash of humor. Hugo and Nebula winner Larry Niven call's J. D. Crayne's work, "Dark humor. Funny stuff." You will find: A pair of stories featuring her small town detective, Lt. Mark Stoddard; a brand new tale of that feline genius with a nose for detection, Lucky Pierre; three horror tales guaranteed to shock the most jaded; and "Dogmeat Man", a science fiction short you will not soon forget. Then there is the dangerously provocative Saturn Stolen, in which a strange fate befalls our only ringed neighbor, the jewel of the solar system. The author calls this title novel, "A black comedy, not recommended for the staid or easily-offended."
