STORIES by NABLO, James Benson


Edition: First printing

Constance Bay (Ontario): Three Bats Press, 2016. 12mo. Quarter bound in grey cloth and red paper-covered boards with cover label, red endpapers. pp [2]. (6), (vi), (57). Edition of 50 copies for sale (plus one for legal copyright and some for contributors), this is #9. New, at publication price. Contains an introduction by Brian Busby, an afterword / memoir and verse by the author's daughter Nancy Nablo Vichert, and five short short stories. Raw stuff - the first story is about a pair of lesbians, the second about a planned murder, the third about lynching in the American South, the fourth a tale of murder and cannibalism in 19th century Upper Canada, and the fifth about a murder on the American shore of Lake Erie. James Benson Nablo (1910-55) was born in Niagara Falls, Ontario. Not a lot is known about him. He went to Hollywood and wrote for B movies. He published one book in his lifetime, the novel THE LONG NOVEMBER (Dutton, 1946). a rough book told in a style that resembles tough guy film noir narration. These short stories, which are in the possession of his daughter, are all that remains of his literary output. Note: variant endpapers, bead grain. The first few (we have seen #3 and #4) had smooth endpapers. Note: lighter parcel, any default postage rate may be reduced.
