THE FINGER OF DESTINY and Other Stories

 

by EDMUND SNELL

 

Introduced by John Pelan

 

Dancing Tuatara Press #42

 

 John Pelan introduces this hard to find classic from Edmund Snell. For decades it's been sought after as a novel of Borneo, but it's actually a collection of somewhat related short stories by an author who knew quite a bit about the exotic lands he wrote about, in this case, Borneo. To help you visualize the setting of the stories, Ramble House artist, Gavin L. O'Keefe, has produced a wonderful mapback cover for the book. And to top it off, John has added another short story to the dozen previously found in the book, "The Black Spider".
