Author: LANSDALE, JOE; SHINER, LEWIS,
Title: Private Eye Action As You Like It... [One of 26 Copies, Signed].
Description: Holyoke, MA: Crossroads, (1998). First Edition. The limited edition of this collection of early detective stories by Lansdale and Shiner, originally published in the late 1970s and early 1980s, prior to the authors' first books, but not collected in book form before this. Of a total edition of 1126 copies, there were 1000 copies in wrappers, 100 numbered hardcovers in grey cloth and dust jacket, and 26 lettered hardcovers bound in full red leather. This is letter "X" of the deluxe edition of 26 copies, signed by Lansdale and Shiner. An extremely scarce issue of a scarce title. Both Lansdale and Shiner have had successful writing careers since these stories were first published: Shiner won a World Fantasy Award for his novel Glimpses, and Lansdale has won nine Bram Stoker Awards as well as an Edgar, among many others. The red leather is spotted at the edges, thus overall very good without dust jacket, presumably as issued.
