Hammett: Collecting Creeps by Night

Autograph Hound Super-Sunday again, in this instance spurred on by Terry Zobeck mentioning to me that he finally landed a copy of the Hammett-edited Creeps by Night in dustjacket — after years of having it as a Grail Item on his Want List.

I then mentioned the find to Brian Leno, who told me he has a copy of Creeps, too.

No dustjacket.

However, it’s the copy once owned by famous Black Mask editor Joseph T. Shaw. Brian says:

Inscribed to Shaw by J. Paul Suter, whose story “Beyond the Door” is included.
Would have been nice to be additionally signed by Faulkner and Hammett, but I’m happy.

Not bad, right?
