I got this short-story collection in my ebay lot when I had to pick up I Am Legend for my book club. Just got around to reading it.
I enjoyed the physical book itself 1965 paperback marked 50 cents but in remarkably good condition. Sometimes old books are just fun!
The stories themselves, however, were a bit uneven, and some of them seemed rather dated and anti-climactic. Genre-wise, theyre kind of in that twilight-zone area between horror and sci-fi.

* A Flourish of Strumpets
* Brother to the Machine
* No Such Thing as a Vampire
* Descent
