In the tradition of his earlier-written "skience friction" tale, The White Circle, webwork master Harry Stephen Keeler tackles concepts of science and the occult as only he can. Clairvoyance and telepathy, as well as the many dimensions of our existence, are questioned and explained in this novel that has never before been published in English. And in the voice of Wong Shing Li, who thankfully speaks sans dialect, Keeler has never been more outrageously entertaining. He even throws in a love story angle for good measure! Written in 1957, this incredible novel has never been read -- until now!

About the Author:

Harry Stephen Keeler was called "one of the greatest alternative writers" by Bill Pronzini. He wrote over 90 novels between the years 1912 and his death in 1967 and thanks to Francis M. Nevins' research all of them are in print today by Ramble House. He wrote like no one else. His mysteries are twisted, surprising, erudite (to the point of humor) and logical -- if you live in Keelerland. About 20 of his later novels were never published in English (or at all for about a dozen) until recently. His astonishing plotting techniques had gone out of style when Mickey Spillane and rough writing swept the publishing world in the late 40s but these days Keeler's writing fits right in. It's as if Neil Gaiman, Thomas Pynchon and David Foster Wallace grew up on him -- and maybe they did?
