The Collection of Harden Bayle (Deluxe Edition)

$75.00

by Berton E. Cook

Author Berton Ellsworth Cook (1889–1958) penned scores of stories about sea-faring life in the pages of the top pulp magazines of the 1930s & ’40s which were drawn from his own personal experiences in Downeast Maine. Cook’s long-running series of stories about the unique collection of an obsessive accumulator of treasures—Harden Bayle—was one of the highlights of Short Stories Magazine for over a decade. It’s a lost classic from the pulps which has never been given the attention it deserved… until now.

Never before reprinted, the entire 25-story series is assembled in an oversized deluxe edition.
