"What surprised me, in all these tales, was the depth of Mundy's wit and skill of his storycraft. The two combined to deliver endings that left me smiling and eager to read the next story. . . . Talbot Mundy is one kick-ass storyteller."—Davy Crockett's Almanack

"This is a nicely produced book. . . . The stories in this third volume of the series are representative enough of his best (and less-known) work that they should encourage Mundy-philes to pick up all the volumes as they appear."—Dime Novel Round-Up
