Smoke Ghost & Other Apparitions

First published in 2002 by Midnight House as a Hardback

Midnight Houses’ second Leiber collection has a special place in my heart as I get thanked in the front of the book! Fine selection of rare stories, many of which were either uncollected before, or come from long out of print collections.
