The Deft Delights of L. Sprague de Camp

A Gun For Dinosaurs
If you can't shoot straight, stay out of the Cretaceous!

The Hardwood Pile
Houses may be haunted, but what would — or could possibly want to — haunt a pile of lumber?

The Inspector's Teeth
The alien from Osiris wanted to join the college fraternity — but how do you haze a dragon?

The Guided Man
If you hire an alter ego, better make sure he's on your side!

Nothing in the Rules
...would tell you how to deal with a drunken mermaid.

These and 10 other incomparably lively tales are a veritable smorgasbord of spirits, spacefarers, and slightly screwball science.
