    Set in a carnival, Madball is one of my favourite Browns but they're all good.  He had a way of writing that even when the situation was unlikely Brown made it seem real and visceral.
      The only Brown in print I have seen recently was Here Comes a Candle put out by the same publishing company that is reprinting Madball.
      Here in Toronto, there are a couple of stores that have Fredric Brown hardcovers (expensive) and the late, lamented Jamie Fraser store on Queen West had quite a few Browns.  That's where I purchased my copy of Here Comes a Candle.

    That's one I don't have. Thanks for the tip. Isn't Fredric Brown almost completely out of print? There isn't even much Brown in used bookstores, at least not in the ones I visit.
