    I have that collection of Grubb - I've used them in my storytime - some great ghoulish turns.
      Not a "lost classic," but a terrific piece of writing from a while back that just got its first full publication, and that may fall outside this list's ken, is Guillermo Rosales' "The Halfway House," one of the bleakest little books I think I've ever read - pure slit-your-wrists noir.

    I don't know if it's a lost classic, but I have a paperback collection of short stories by Davis Grubb that I have never seen reprinted. The short stories are on a very high level, great stuff.

    Also, some obscure classics were reprinted in the UK but not in the US (Blue Murder series, for example), and they're now probably out of print even in the UK, so a US reissue would be welcome.
