Pastiches of Harry Stephen Keeler

 For the last eleven years Richard Polt has held an Imitate Keeler Contest and published the winners in Keeler News, the newsletter for the HSK Society. Ramble House has recently updated its collection of the winning stories, Fakealoo!, and it's now over 90 pages of non-stop Keelerisms, including what may be the ultimate Keeler pastiche, William Poundstone's 2007 winner, The Box from Nowhere.  Only part of this incredible story is revealed in the sample below. You have to buy this book!

"While a Keeler proper is de rigueur for relaxing in the bedchamber, I prefer a damn good pastiche for the hours I spend lounging in the necessary room."
