    Todd, unless you're a completist, you've probably already read the overwhelming majority of the material in this collection if you're any fan of Lansdale. The table of contents are:

    Mister Weed-Eater Tight Little Stitches in a Dead Man's Back The Big Blow The Magic Wagon (excerpt from) Dirt Devils The Pit Night They Missed the Horror Show Bubba Ho-Tep Fat Man and the Elephant A Fine Dark Line (excerpt from) White Mule, Spotted Pig

    I too toyed with the idea of picking this collection up, but couldn't justify the purchase after seeing the TOC.

    Ron C.
