THE HA OF HA CONTENTS AND REVIEWS

Contents List & Introduction

“Can you recall the lasting effect of the most deeply disturbing collection of horror stories you’ve ever encountered? The narratives join hands…” — From THE USELESS by Dominy Clements

“Every book has a soul. The soul of the person who wrote it and of those who read it and lived and dreamed with it. Every time a book changes hands, every time someone runs his eyes down its pages, its spirit grows and strengthens.” —from ‘The Shadow Of The Wind’ by Carlos Ruiz Zafon

==========================================

THE LAST DITCH

All stories are original to the Ha of Ha and are written about fictional Horror Anthologies that, as books, are real to the stories’ characters:

The Book’s Electronic Introduction

This is a basic, no frills, no-introduction, highly adequate, perfect-bound paperback book, conveying its wonderful stories and strikingly brilliant photo images. Ironically, yet meaningfully, this delightful handleable real book with hauntingly memorable items of short horror fiction plotted around real horror anthology books has only been made possible by basic electronic facilities in necessary tune with whatever skills I have as editor, typesetter and publisher – and it serves as something that will never become an E-Book. And the lasting image is just that – on page 323 where the book ends.

PS: The HA of HA book is also the last ditch stand against ebooks?…
