Two spines

A delivery van brought a copy of Newton Compton's Gli Incubi di Hazel today - the Italian edition of Leander Deeny's Hazel's Phantasmagoria that has 'borrowed' the cover from Uncle Montague's Tales of Terror.

It is a curious thing. The book is weirdly padded so that you can squeeze it and it makes a slight hissing noise as you let go (unintentional I think). It is illustrated throughout with David Robert's illustrations from the Quercus edition of the book here in the UK - and one of them pops up on the back cover. He is credited and acknowledged as the copyright holder.

The plot thickens. . .
