The Red Brain (Belmont Books, 1961)

Ten stories that were originally published in 'Creeps By Night' (1931). It was the Hammett introduction that caught my eye, of course, but I'm sure you'll agree that the artwork is great. For its age, this is in amazing condition, the spine being completely uncreased. I can't see how it's survived 50 years without the usual wear and tear. The positioning of the words 'and other creepy thrillers' amuses me, implying that Hammett is a creepy thriller.
