  The Third Cry to Legba and Other Invocations: Selected Stories of Manly Wade Wellman, Volume 1 ~ First Edition / First Printing 2000, ILLUSTRATED

 Publisher: Night Shade Books, San Francisco (2000)

The Third Cry to Legba and Other Invocations: Selected Stories of Manly Wade Wellman, Volume 1. The John Thunstone & Lee Cobbett Stories. First edition from 2000, in mint condition. Original ISBN sticker still on back board (see picture). Illustrated; 305 pages. These stories (written between 1943 and 1979) combine the mystical and horrific with traditional Southern folk tales and legends. At the same time, these stories reveal a post-WWII modernism that make them much more than pulp romanticism. The paranoia and cynicism of modern weird icons such as the X-Files may well have had their genesis in the pulp musings of Manly Wade Wellman. Indeed, the intensely driven, idealistic occult investigator John Thunstone could be a pulp noir stand-in for Fox Mulder. This work was issued in a fine collector's hardcover state, with 24 illustrations. Edited by Johhn Pelan, illustrated by Kenneth Waters. Contents include:

- The Golden Goblins
- Hoofs
- The Letters of Cold Fire
- Sorcerry from Thule
- The Dead Man's Hand
- Blood from a Stone 
- The Dai Sword
