Five cheap trinkets, featuring Buddha with hands over his eyes, were auctioned one day. Newspaperman Penn Harding bought one, as did Sol Levinstein the auctioneer. So did Ivan Kossakoff, known to the police only as "The Strangler"; Cedric van Allen, timid civil engineer from North Africa searching for a lost love; and Tim Waldo, second-story man formerly from Australia. Only Harry Stephen Keeler, master of the webworks, could have woven their five paths into one Brobdingnagian tapestry of oriental wisdom-and Chicago chicanery!

HARRY STEPHEN KEELER (1890-1967) Never heard of Harry Stephen Keeler? Don't feel alone. He's America's most forgotten author, victim of a plot by publishers to weed out all writers who don't write swift, easy-to-read, dumbed-down prose for the masses. Harry wrote because he enjoyed it and early on developed a style all his own. He devised incredibly convoluted plots involving ethnic characters (who speak in outrageous dialect), pop culture of the 30s and 40s, and his favorite MacGuffin: skulls. Modern-day writers have their DNA evidence; Harry preferred skulls. Once you read a Keeler, you're never quite the same, and now -- thanks to Ramble House -- you can read all you want. And more!
