PimPage: An Occasional Feature in Which I Call Interesting Books to Your Attention
Besides the stories, this volume has a nice intro by F. Paul Wilson. Gene Christie provides a short editorial note along with headnotes to all the stories. I really enjoyed Black Dog's first Rohmer collection, The Green Spider, and this one looks like just as much fun.
