Dust jacket by Gavin L. O'Keefe



Who are those six mysterious figures that are looming outside the owner’s trailer of Angus MacWhorter’s Mammoth Motorized Shows? And why would they want the copy of a pulp magazine that he bought for ten cents? The answers have something to do with a gangster by the name of Gonwyck Schwaaa, the tong of the Lean Grey Rats, and a group calling itself the Society of Retired Clergymen. Whew! Luckily, there’s an introduction by Francis M. Nevins (with two maps) to give you some background on Harry Stephen Keeler’s “Screwball Circus” world. It’s a strange one.
