[nice copy, tight and unworn, just a trace of dust-smudging on top edge; jacket shows extremely light surface handling wear]. Limited/numbered edition of 350 copies, this being no. 83, and SIGNED on the limitation page by both the author and his son (the jacket artist); this copy additionally SIGNED by the publisher, Dennis McMillan, on the copyright page. The author, in his foreword, explains that "The Paper Gun" is "a story complete in itself," but more in the nature of "a completely detailed synopsis on paper" than a fully-realized novel; he attributes this to the fact that, after having written four novels featuring detective Paul Pine, he simply "lost interest in the private-eye genre." Also included here is a novelette, "So Dark for April," which was written for "Manhunt" magazine in the mid-50's, and was the only short piece involving Paul Pine that he had produced.
