This collection has short stories and poems, old and new. One of the stories he wrote as a birthday present for his daughter. Her only request was that he finish writing it before her next birthday. Another story he wrote in his twenties and no one would publish it, saying it was too odd. So he put it away in the attic, only to pull it out years later for this collection and decide it really wasn't that bad. Some stories are special requests to include in anthologies, such as his Sherlock Holmes meets H.P. Lovecraft story. And he reads everything with that lovely voice. Sigh.......
