Smith, Thorne: Thorne Smith: Collected Works. v1. 01 Aug 2021

A collection of wickedly witty, ribald, satirical tales. Many of these tell of everyday folks in collision with the supernatural, but chuckles are to be found in others as well. For some surprise departures from Smith’s usual style, take a look at the superb murder mystery Did She Fall? and the engaging children’s book Lazy Bear Lane.

Due to copyright restrictions, this collection excludes The Passionate Witch (1941), which was completed by Norman H. Matson (1893–1965).
(See list of contents below)

==========
James Thorne Smith, Jr. (March 27, 1892 – June 20, 1934) was an American writer of humorous supernatural fantasy fiction under the byline Thorne Smith. He had a brief but prolific career as a best-selling comic novelist. He is best known today for the two Topper novels, comic fantasy fiction involving sex, much drinking, and ghosts. With racy illustrations, these sold millions of copies in the 1930s and were equally popular in paperbacks of the 1950s. His writings have had a lingering influence in popular culture: witness, for example, the television series “Bewitched” and “I Dream of Jeanie” and the films Beetlejuice, Ghostbusters, and Night at the Museum.
