THE CRACKPOT

AND OTHER TWISTED TALES OF GREEDY FANS AND COLLECTORS

 

by John E. Stockman

 

Edited and Introduced by Dwight R. Decker

 

Foreword by Richard A. Lupoff

 

This is a collection of eight stories about book people and book collectors as seen through the jaundiced eyes of John E. Stockman, a man who knew his way around a Comic Con. He also supplied numerous sketches, some of them full page, that make the world of comix and inkslingers almost as much fun as non-writers think it is.  Here are the stories in this collection, reprinted for the first time.
