WHAT'S BECOME OF SCREWLOOSE?
DAW 2nd? printing 1973/1974 paperback (number-line is missing 1 and 2; hardcover was 1971.) Cover by Josh Kirby, 157 pages, 95 cent cover price. Condition is Fine: tight and square with flat spine; age tanning is very mild and uniform. No stamps, marks or writing - a clean copy that looks new/unread.
A 1971 collection by Ron Goulart: What's Become of Screwloose? and Other Inquiries. Goulart's irreverent, slapstick stories have more "bite" or satirical edge than his novels. These show a nice range: from "Prez" (a cybernetic dog, bright as the average 10 year old boy) to "Hobo Jungle" (set on the planet Murdstone - featuring Ben Jolson of the Chameleon Corps.)
What's Become of Screwloose
These appeared from 1962 to 1970 in Magazine of F&SF (3), If (2), Amazing, Fantastic, and the anthology Infinity One. "Hardcastle" and "Monte Cristo Complex" appear to be original to the 1971 hardcover.
