One of the books we produced last month was an interesting piece of mash-up. It was Origins of the Partnership by Seabury Quinn. We dug around in Quinn's oeuvre and found the four stories that first prefigured and then brought together Jules de Grandin and Dr. Trowbridge. It was a fun little piece of pulp fiction scholarship. Those of you who are fans of the great Occult Detective Team should try it!
